Yum. City CarShare, our local carsharing coop, just got its first smart fortwo cars. I love the way they’ve maintained their values, working closely with community groups, supporting transit and livable cities, and investing in cars like the Prius, fortwo, Mini Cooper, and Toyota Yaris — all of which are on the government’s list of the most fuel-efficient cars.

(This, in light of the way carsharing industry behemoth Zipcar is rapidly moving away from its greener roots, and stocking earth-unfriendly cars like BMWs and Mustangs. What use market share, if you give up on your values getting there?)
