Kelley Blue Book (KBB), that information-rich little package that will tell you everything you need to know about both new and used cars has just taken a step in a whole new direction.
Though various aspects of vehicle performance (include fuel economy) have long been a part of Kelley Blue Book's offering, now they're getting ready for the alternative fuel revolution.
First, their providing a wealth of information. Not just on current cars, but also on alternative fuels and power trains. With biofuels going mainstream, and plug-in and extended-range electric vehicles just a couple years away, KBB is getting consumers ready to understand their future options.
I was able to put in the make, model and year of my car and KBB Green compared it to 10 fuel efficient and hybrid models to see how much I would save per week.
For me, since I've already got an efficient car (2001 Sentra) and don't drive very much, there wasn't much savings ($10 per month) if I owned a Prius. But KBB will also match up your vehicle with any vehicle in their database and tell you when your breakeven point would be, and how much extra you'll have to spend to get yourself into a new car, taking into account your current car's trade-in value.
All of this comes along with a thriving green car community, explanations of all kinds of alternative fuels, and news about the future of green cars.
Man! I've been waiting for a service like this. Honestly, I thought it would come from some internet startup. But it looks like old, faithful KBB is a lot more innovative than I expected.
So if you're in the market for a new car, KBB Green definitely has all the tools you need to help you make the right decision.
