Green Machines: Fleet Purchase Plans for 2009

Posted on January 14, 2009 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

TORRANCE, Calif. — LCT Magazine is working on its first-ever Green issue, which will be published in March. Coverage will analyze the latest trends in chauffeured transportation green programs. We’d love to hear from you and find out what your fleet plans are for this year, by answering this question:

Will you be buying more hybrids or alternative-fuel vehicles?

Alternative-fuel vehicles (AFVs) covers a wide range: CNG, LNG, propane, ethanol, hydrogen fuel cell, electric, and biodiesel. Many are still in the early development phases compared to hybrids, but you can expect to see more options in the marketplace. Green vehicles are getting a lot of attention now at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit as the automakers show off their green offerings and forecast upcoming model year product launches.
