2007 geneva car show; a look into the future of "green"

The 2007 Geneva Motor Show was much more than a display of futuristic, street-legal, racing vehicles with a hard on for speed and handling. No, no, no. The show previewed the top ten green cars of 2007.

With the imminent threat of global warming and climate change on the agendas of policymakers and obviously consumers, the auto world is striving to fill the void of green vehicles.

I am still dubious as to the American people's actual desire to "go green," but the shift in automobile production and direction is a definite step in the right direction.

Consumers are more likely to purchase hybrid/diesel engine vehicles if they are 'fly', or in Paris' rhetoric 'hot', which Mercedes-Benz C220 BLUTEC and VW's Passat BlueMotion have fulfilled with their 50 mpg emission-cutting vehicles of 2007.

Among the other top green cars of the show was Saab's 9-3 convertible biopower and Toyota's “completely recyclable zero-emissions car” and technology in the Hybrid X.

What else will they come up with next?
