The Mitsubishi pictured is the i-MiEV.

TDI simply means turbo-diesel, which has been around for years. The VW Passat you refer to is probably a Blue Motion model, which is an efficient turbo diesel coupled with Stop/Start among other things.

Very excited for the Prius. Great vehicle, and one of the most popular hybrids here in the states.

The only green car, is no car at all. The batteries, and their components, are even more environmentally dangerous than burning fuel. Diesel is cialis online 50mgs still a petroleum product. Until the world embraces clean biofuels, and true sustainability, I cannot see that any type of car could be considered 'green'.

You are quite correct. Blogs like this one seem to cater for people who like the concept of 'green' but are still at heart the same old consumers hankering for the latest and greatest gadget or technology. If it is in some way attributed as 'green' then that is the green light justification for a purchase. Marketers know this and specifically target this market. Blogs like this one, often mindlessly publish PR greenwash from corporations thus helping to sustain the status quo.

Cars do not have to fda approved viagra sales be built in any special way to run on buy viagra australia natural gas. Any gasoline powered vehicle can easily and cheaply be converted to run on natural gas, propane, or even hydrogen.
No cars

I agree with Mark and viagra cost Mike; but reality is that most areas in the US do not have a usable public transportation system. In some areas, suburbs offer the only affordable housing option for a family that can not fit in a city studio or 1 bedroom apartment. And finally, if you live in the US West Coast, you need a car for those weekend outings to the mountains, etc, where biking is out of super levitra the question and bus/train service is non-existent.
