APA praises several automakers for being serious about environment

Friday, January 19, 2007

MONTREAL (CP) - The head of the Automobile Protection Association believes the major car show currently going on in Montreal is the perfect vehicle to get consumers to think green.

George Iny says buyers should focus on smaller models which are more economical and take up less space.

"In most cases, you can have the same comfort in something that's a little more fuel-efficient and more economical because technology and performance have been migrating down into the smaller cars," Iny said in an interview.

"There are some superb $20,000 cars out there like the Mazda 3 and the Honda Civic, which also has a relatively clean engine. . .You don't have to necessarily spend $30,000 dollars for a hybrid."

Automakers may not be renowned for being environmentally friendly but Iny does have words of praise for some of them for taking the environment seriously.

"Certainly, Toyota and Honda have some interesting products," Iny said at the Montreal International Auto Show, which runs until Jan. 28.

But he added that General Motors is "just talking" when the North American automaker it says it's serious about the environment.

The Canadian Automobile Association gave Toyota one of its 2007 Pyramid awards for environmental initiatives.
