$2,500 car

TreeHugger and PFAdvice quote BusinessWeek's report that Renault-Nissan is working on building a $2,500 car. A new generation of the Ford Model Ts with hopefully the requisite safety and fuel/mileage efficient techology is in the offing. How will this all pan out?

Technology is neutral. The people behind aren't.

It's exciting news. But, what gets me more excited is how the 'greenies' will adapt the knowledge behind the technology for sustainable development. I'd like to see hundreds of groups, companies, cooperatives, individuals offering different and AFFORDABLE green cars or mass transport, or single transporter (bikes, cycles...)

Technology for the people!
