Test Drive 13 Different Clean Cars in LA This Weekend

Dwell on Design hosts the Los Angeles stop of the 2011 Green Car Tour this weekend! I just realized that most of my Gas2.0 readers aren’t necessarily also interior design fans. So you might not know that this weekend, in downtown Los Angeles, you can test drive a broad range of eco cars, everything from the Mitsubishi Miev to the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. Although this gorgeous Audi A7 is gas-only, Audi explains that the aerodynamics have improved overall efficiency. Personally, I’d rather drive this Audi. That is, if I had to drive a car.

I won’t be there, as I will be at Laguna Seca covering the Refuel event, which already has a full house for the cars, and promises to have some “very interesting” motorcycles present. (according to the event promoter’s email to me).

So if you’re in Los Angeles this weekend, swing by the convention center and test drive these great cars. Then go inside, where you’ll likely see a representative of the Tiny House Movement, though probably not as cool as this one.
