DOT and EPA Announce New Eco-Friendly Labels

Yesterday Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood unveiled the EPA and Department of Transportation’s new fuel economy labels, which will help consumers pick the most wallet- and environmentally-friendly vehicles. In addition to gas mileage and electric-equivalent ratings, the new labels will estimate a vehicle’s five year fuel costs compared to an average new vehicle.

Consumers purchasing a fuel-efficient vehicle will be able to see how their choice will save them some serious cash over the long term, in addition to helping the environment. We can’t wait to see how much cost savings the technologies being used in EcoCAR today earn the green car consumers of the future!
