Chevrolet’s Bolt EV and the new Chrysler Pacifica minivan—including its plug-in hybrid version—joined the Honda Ridgeline as winners of the North American Car, Utility Vehicle, and Truck of the Year, respectively.
General Motors announced recently that its new lineup of heavy-duty diesel
pickups will soon have natural gas, petroleum autogas, electric drive, and
B20 capability. B20 fuel is a blend of 20-percent biodiesel and 80-percent
conventional diesel, which helps lower carbon dioxide emissions and lessens
dependence on petroleum. The announcement was made this month at the
National Biodiesel Conference in San Diego.
