Since 1976, the only way a consumer has been able to reliably compare the environmental merits of a new car or truck was from the EPA fuel economy data on the sales sticker. But now, a new decal has been unveiled giving potential owners much more information about the car they are about to purchase. The sticker will detail how the car is made, its potential fuel efficiency and its ecological benefits. It will also tell you what percentage of it can be recycled after the car's lifespan.
We have video from the Washington Auto Show where the sticker was unveiled. We also have soundbites from experts talking about the newest lineup of ecological sustainable cars.
