DETROIT (WXYZ) - 7 Action News takes you under the hood of a green car that’s not even available yet in America.
The Chevrolet Cruze diesel will be in showrooms in a few months and promises to bring big saving for eco-conscious drivers.
This tiny clean burning diesel gets 47 miles per gallon and can take you a big distance: 700 miles. That's a trip from Detroit to Little Rock, Arkansas on one tank.
The Cruze diesel is powering GM into the earth friendly stratosphere as the days of belching smoke and noisy engines are a thing of the past.
“It has 90 percent less noxious emissions then the previous generations of diesels. It's smooth and quiet on the highway," says Christi Landy of GM marketing.
GM reports they have 105 facilities around the world that are land-fill free and are dedicated to reducing waste, frequently turn byproducts from manufacturing into new-vehicle components.
For example, shredded tires from the Milford proving grounds are recycled into baffles for the Chevy Cruze diesel. These baffles help deflect air around the car’s radiator, keeping the vehicle running cool and more fuel efficient.
The MSRP for the Chevrolet Cruze Diesel is $24,885. You can find out more information on the vehicle on Chevrolet's website .
