Herb Chambers: “We’ve Got It” – Including Great Hybrid AND Diesel Models!

Herb Chambers NECN CEO Corner Feature

As trends go, I continue to hear a lot about fuel economy which frequently leads to a discussion about two of today’s interesting vehicle types. The first of course is the hybrid, which as you know derives its power from a combination of battery power and a gasoline internal combustion engine working in unison. The second is the tried and true diesel, significantly re-engineered to burn much cleaner while delivering great performance and record low-emissions levels.

Let me first discuss hybrids. It’s no secret that these vehicles have set sales records in 2008. In fact, sales have jumped by over 66% this year alone! These greener vehicles are so popular that nearly every main-stream auto manufacturer has or will be offering a hybrid model and in some cases, several models. This is a great sign that the industry is continuing to embrace the importance of reducing hydrocarbon emissions while building vehicles that will deliver you to nearly any destination in style, comfort and do so using less fuel!

Secondly, diesel engine vehicles are on the way from Mercedes-Benz & BMW and we are currently taking orders for delivery later this year when they arrive. This was a favorite of some manufacturers throughout the 70’s and early 80’s for engine longevity and MPG. Well, diesels are now poised to make a dramatic comeback in brilliantly re-engineered form to burn much cleaner with much lower sulfur emissions), without the noise that was associated with diesel power, provide truly outstanding performance and deliver greater MPG – all while luxury drivers enjoy tremendous new levels of torque and power. Additional diesel options will be coming soon from Audi, Cadillac, Ford, Honda & Saturn.

I do believe that in the next decade the vehicle landscape will continue to evolve with unprecedented choices of exciting vehicles and you can bet we will have them all in our 45 showrooms.

If you’re interested in these types of vehicles, you’ll find fuel efficient gas, hybrid or diesel and most everything else at a Herb Chambers showroom near you.

Thanks for reading & we look forward to seeing you soon!
