Congestion charging. Carbon dioxide emission-based taxation. Fridge-type efficiency labels. Car recycling. Worthy? Yes. Sexy? No.

That's the problem facing the car industry. It has to go green, because there's pressure from every angle to do so, but it must do so without falling into the trap of becoming interesting only to tree-huggers who are a bath or two short of a proper scrub.
