Pssssst, don’t tell King Abdullah.
Proving that with leadership and innovation anything is possible (are your listening Detroit?) Mercedes-Benz is aiming to phase out fossil-fuel powered vehicles over the next seven years, replacing its entire lineup with autos powered by electric motors, fuel cells, and biofuels.
The company has already invested almost $4 million in its Sustainable Mobility program, and plans to invest another $14 million by 2014.
Imagine? Within 7 years, no Mercedes will need fossil fuel to zip down the highway. Call it, the seven year ditch.
