A Deeper Focus


Extreme Green Car Show to be featured at the 2012 conference October 20-21

New this year for the CCBioneers conference is our first Extreme Green Car Show, which will take place Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express parking lot, across the street from conference headquarters at the Monday Club. Why is this car show Extreme? ¬†Because only cars already meeting or exceeding the 2025 fuel efficiency rules of 54.5 MPG or equivalent are being given a spot. As we face ever-rising gas prices, the threat of imminent arctic drilling and even Channel Island drilling, the ability of these cars’ technology to reduce our demand for oil is a bright ray of hope. These are not your parents’ golf carts, they are fast, fun to drive, have ever-widening ranges and charge more quickly than ever. Some test driving will be available. Our lineup includes a 2013 Ford C-Max Energi, a 2013 Ford Focus EV, a 2013 Toyota RAV4 EV, a 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in, a 2013 Chevy Volt EV, a 2012 Nissan Leaf SL, a 2012 Honda Civic NG and a 2010 Tesla Roadster (which has a cameo appearance in the film Looper). This is a free event at conference.
