Forget about L.A. being tinsel town, and style capital. At this year's Los Angeles Auto Show the automakers are trying to wrap themselves in the "Green Leaf" of fuel efficiency. Ford announced a new sustainability plan that will include developing direct injection gas engines, lighter cars, and more hybrids.
Chrysler is touting its Hybrid Dodge Durango and all-electric Gem cars. GM is showing its hybrid Chevy Silverado pick-up and renewing its pledge to make more fuel efficient vehicles. You get the picture.
