For years, Green Car Journal has been hosting events that bring ‘green’ cars to media and consumers alike. At many of these events – like the Green Car Tour – the goal is to encourage time behind-the-wheel, providing a more thorough understanding of what these vehicles are like and how they can fit into today’s diverse lifestyles.
Green Car Tour stages have been held at varying locations, often with a focus specific to a particular venue. At Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago, the Green Car Tour presented clean diesel technology to media, accompanied by tours of the National Lab highlighting its work on clean diesel fuels and advanced diesel technologies. The ‘Eureka Drive’ Green Car Tour showcased a 1,000 mile drive the length of California in Audi A3 TDI clean diesel vehicles running on synthetic diesel fuel.
At the Sierra Club National Convention, the Green Car Tour highlighted the latest gasoline-electric hybrid and hydrogen fuel models from multiple automakers, enabling attendees to experience these advanced vehicles on the streets of San Francisco. Similar Green Car Tour activities have been held at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the Society of Environmental Journalists conferences in Miami and Austin, the New York International Auto Show, Art Center College of Design’s Sustainable Mobility Summit in Pasadena, and the Dwell on Design show in Los Angeles.
Many other Green Car events have been presented in conjunction with shows and conferences. Among these are the Automobiles and the Environment Conferences at the L.A. Auto Show, the Green Car Summit on Capitol Hill, the Green Car Pavilion at the Washington Auto Show, and a clean diesel panel discussion at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Green Car Journal presentations have additionally been held at venues like the St. Louis Science Center in Missouri and Colorado College.
