AJAC - Eco-Run - 2014
Eighteen new vehicles representing the latest in fuel-efficient technologies are set to start the third annual Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) Eco-Run Tuesday (May 6) from Jack Poole Plaza in downtown Vancouver. The three-day run to Whistler and Pemberton – and back to Vancouver (on Thursday) – showcases the latest advances in fuel efficiency and reduced emissions being offered in today’s marketplace. This year, there’s an eclectic range of vehicles participating, including pure electrics, plug-in and conventional hybrids and high-efficiency gas- and diesel-fuelled internal combustion powertrains. The Eco-Run fleet, with 12 manufacturers represented, includes 2014 and 2015 model-year compacts and subcompacts, family sedans and crossovers, even a premium sports sedan and a pickup truck.   >>read more>>
