Seeking a brand new “green” car, but can’t go fully electric yet? Consider the 2013 Dodge Dart Aero. This award-winning, fuel-efficient retro compact gets 41 mpg hwy and starts at just $19,295. Worried about buying a small car? The 2013 Dodge Dart was recently named a hard-to-get Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIS).
Many of today’s drivers try to at least be aware of their vehicles impact on the environment. And while many manufacturers try to catch up to this growing trend, the 2013 Dodge Dart leaves them in the dust.
From wxyz.com: On this Earth Day, Detroit is flexing its eco-muscle and offering cars that get better gas mileage, use recycled products and cheat the wind. All in an effort to save money and the environment.
The Dodge Dart helps save the environment by offering world class aerodynamics and getting 41 miles per gallon
This Dodge packs a powerful punch in the Earth-friendly department. At the end of each Dart’s life ALL the plastics and metals can be recycled.
The Dart’s carpets are made from recycled milk jugs, and the noise cancelling padding in the trunk is made from recycled denim jeans.
But that’s not all! The power steering operates without toxic fluid and the time between oil changes are now farther apart.
“With the Dart you can go up to 8,000 miles before you are required to get an oil change, which is good for the environment because of less waste,” says Peter Milosavlevski, Dart’s Organization Engineer.
From autoblog.com: Dodge and SRT Motorsports announced that the Dodge Dart will be returning for its sophomore season of the Global Rallycross Championship with a two-car team fielded by Pastrana Racing. Travis Pastrana drove his GRC Dart to victory lane in the fourth race of the car’s inaugural season, and his race team is looking for even more success with the addition of off-road racer Bryce Menzies behind the wheel of the second car.
The 2013 GRC season kicks off on April 21 in Brazil with plenty of dirt-spewing, ramp-jumping action. Scroll down for a video from the cars’ main sponsor, Red Bull, and a press release from Chrysler.
