June 21, 2012

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The Sierra Club, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy all agree: better understanding of the evolving automotive landscape can lead to informed vehicle choices that move us toward a more sustainable future. CarsOfChange.com(TM) – an all-new auto enthusiast website launched by recognized industry authority Ron Cogan – is an important resource that now fills this need.

“CarsOfChange.com(TM) provides a compelling read through features and road tests by seasoned auto writers who thoroughly understand the evolving intersection of automobiles, energy, and the environment,” says Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and CarsOfChange.com(TM). “It presents articles on the most important topics of the day like fuel efficiency and reducing oil dependence, while emphasizing the joy of driving and car ownership.”

These topics increasingly include crossover into the convergence of sophisticated electronics in our cars, which Cars of Change(TM) will cover in-depth.

“Cars of Change(TM) will get gearheads talking about the future of vehicles from the technological, environmental, and enthusiast perspectives – all in the same place,” says Therese Langer, Transportation Program Director of the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE). “That helps to infuse efforts to make our transportation system more affordable and more sustainable with the excitement of today’s accelerated automotive evolution.”

The website is unique among major auto enthusiast publications because it showcases the perspective of the nation’s most high-profile environmental organizations, science and efficiency experts, and auto industry executives. Expanding on the mission that Green Car Journal embarked upon with its launch in 1992, CarsOfChange.com(TM) presents diverse viewpoints for readers to consider as they make up their own minds about what’s important in our evolving transportation future.

“The American public is embracing fuel efficiency and the auto industry is responding with new technologies and new vehicles that use less gas, or get us there oil-free,” says Ann Mesnikoff, director of the Sierra Club’s Green Transportation Campaign. “Cars of Change(TM) is the right resource at the right time to help Americans understand these changes, and to help navigate these changes and make decisions about the best vehicles.”

Roland Hwang, Transportation Program Director for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), adds: “For too long the auto industry and environmentalists have been at loggerheads. But today, the U.S. auto industry has become an agent of change for fuel efficiency and clean cars. We have an unprecedented opportunity to work together to keep this country moving forward on innovation, jobs, and a cleaner, healthier environment. CarsOfChange.com(TM) can play an important role in conveying how this process is unfolding through the cars, the technologies, and the dialogues it features.”

Currently highlighted on CarsOfChange.com(TM) are features including “Can Electronics Teach Efficient Driving?” by executive editor Todd Kaho; “The Case for Natural Gas Transportation” by technical editor Bill Siuru; and “Henrik Fisker Talks Electrics, the Karma, and the Birth of a Brand” by editor Ron Cogan. Plus, perspectives are shared from companies and organizations like ACEEE, Argonne National Laboratory, Global Green USA, NRDC, Sierra Club, SoCal Gas, 3M, and the Union of Concerned Scientists.

CarsOfChange.com(TM) is published by RJ Cogan Specialty Publications Group, Inc. Founder and president Ron Cogan is an award-winning, veteran auto writer and auto industry analyst who launched seven magazines for the former Petersen Publishing Company and served as feature editor on the staff at Motor Trend, specializing in intelligent transportation systems, advanced automotive electronics, and alternative fuel vehicles.
