Holden and its New Green Baby

31 Aug

Green Car?

Perhaps the idea of a green still conjures up such an image. Being environmentally friendly and driving still does not go hand in hand for a lot of people. In an earlier post, I shared some car models that treat Earth a little better. Today, Holden just released news that they have upgraded their Commodore to a VE Series II, that runs on bio-ethanol.

What exactly is bio-ethanol? Apparently some people create it as fuel right in their household, although I wouldn’t recommend that for your car. Some good things about the Holden VE Series II Commodore, that any driver would be concerned about:

  • fuel-saving, up to 12% in improvement (of course a lot still depends on how you drive)
  • comes with Blue Tooth, wireless, cable and USB connections, to a music junkie’s delight
  • bio-ethanol fuel will be available from around 100 petrol stations by 2011

For drivers like myself, the big leap of faith will still be about the convenience that the vehicle can offer. After all, convenience is why one would get a car to begin with. I do foresee that with more stations providing greener fuel, it will be easier for people to make the switch to a greener car. What would get you to go on a greener car?
