Looks like great fun, pitting a Jetta TDI against a Toyota Prius. You can follow along with this map to see where they are and if they are swinging by your town. They are also updating a blog page at http://www.greenhuman.net with videos and more. The left side displays a list of dates and locations to supplement the map.
Portland 2 Portland Green Test Drive is the ultimate test comparison of the new Jetta TDI and leading hybrid automobiles.
Starting in Portland Maine, our crew of auto enthusiasts will drive a 2009 Jetta TDI and a leading hybrid vehicle nearly 5000 miles as they cross the entire United States of America and ultimately end the test drive in Portland Oregon.
On the way they’ll keep track of fuel consumption in all kinds of conditions from bitter cold to blistering heat.
Which one will come out on top? We’ll all have to watch and see.
