Why Switch to Electric Drive Vehicles?  Because they save money, reduce pollution, increase energy independence, and create jobs.  Right now, dependence on oil threatens our nation’s economic, environmental and national security. And two-thirds of our total oil consumption is used just for transportation. If we electrified just half of cars and light trucks in America, we could reduce oil consumption by nearly 5 million barrels a day. We’d also improve human health and the environment. Cars and trucks in the United States emit about one million tons of CO2 every day.  Bedford 2020 Coalition, the sponsor of the Car Show, is a nonprofit committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, preserving our natural resources and educating the community about actions they can take to achieve these goals.  For more information, go to www.bedford2020.org/carshow2013.
