International PNGV-Equivalent Programs: Where Does the United States Stand? 1999-01-1308
The Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles (PNGV), while in a class of its own for trying to develop supercars, is confronted by numerous similar programs. By no means is the PNGV the one answer to the new generation of vehicle puzzle. Programs such as ACE (Japan), the Foresight Project (UK), and the Car of Tomorrow (EU) provide insight to where the United States stands in the competition, and possibilities for the program’s future. The United States government is investing more money than other countries, yet other programs’ initiatives and goals are not quite as comprehensive as PNGV’s.
