The Race Heats up to Find the Best Alternative Fuel Vehicle

GM's Head of Consumer Affairs, James Bell and Cars.com's Executive Editor, Joe Wiesenfelder Discuss the Latest Advancements in Alternative Fuel Vehicles And Unveils the ONLY "Made In America" New Clean Diesel Passenger Car

Since the price of gas shows no signs of going down, Americans are driving demand for alternative fuel vehicles up! From electric vehicles to hybrids to cars powered by ethanol or natural gas, the list of alternative choices is growing rapidly. But it looks like the frontrunner may soon be clean diesel and the powerful new clean diesel engines.

Americans are finally catching on to what Europeans have known for a while. Diesel has come a long way. Today's diesel is clean, efficient and offers great performance. In fact, diesel engine cars are so popular in Europe now that they account for roughly 50% of car sales.

James Bell, Head of Consumer Affairs for General Motors and Joe Wiesenfelder, Executive Editor of Cars.com, inform viewers about the latest choices in alternative fuel vehicles. They also talk about the technology behind today's new diesel engines and how they are able to be affordable, green and still pack plenty of power. They also unveil the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze 2.0 TD (Turbo Diesel), the ONLY "Made in America" passenger car with this technology.
