Is Obama the “Green Car” President?

NBC News - November 11, 2012

Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s sup­port for the auto indus­try bailout was crit­i­cal to his suc­cess­ful re-elec­tion bid. Plus, Oba­ma sup­port­ed alter­na­tive fuel in the push to elim­i­nate oil depen­dence.

Where will Oba­ma stand on “green cars” in his sec­ond term?

…it remains to be seen how far Oba­ma will go in sup­port­ing green cars in his sec­ond term. The indus­try has been strug­gling for sales in a mar­ket­place that still over­whelm­ing­ly sup­ports tra­di­tion­al inter­nal-com­bus­tion vehi­cles, despite volatile gas prices and big fed­er­al tax incen­tives for elec­tric cars.

The Elec­tric Dri­ve Trans­porta­tion Asso­ci­a­tion, which rep­re­sents mak­ers of hybrid and elec­tric cars, said it “looks for­ward to con­tin­u­ing its work with Pres­i­dent Oba­ma and the new­ly elect­ed Con­gress to advance tech­nol­o­gy inno­va­tion that will diver­si­fy our trans­porta­tion fuels.”
