Test your green IQ by taking a quiz from "Jay Leno's Green Garage"

The test is part of the series of articles that they run featuring "Jay Leno's Green Garage". Most of the questions have answers that are sorta obvious, but you might learn something.

Over the next three years, the city of Chicago will buy 300 hybrid vehicles from a local Toyota dealership. For a price tag of $8.7 million, that comes to roughly $29,000 per vehicle.

They will purchase 100 Prius, 100 Camry Hybrids, and 100 Highlander Hybrids. The new vehicles will be used primarily by the police and the fire depts.

The city is looking to boost the number of alternative vehicles by 10% each year. They currently have 5,400 vehicles.

The ZENN Motor Company announced it would be selling the compact car at Green Motors of the East Bay in Berkeley. The cars actually go on sale in the next couple days. The ZENN car will also make an appearance at the Solano Stroll on Sept. 9 and also at The Fourth Street Shops, Retromobilia, where ZENNs will be on display with other alternative vehicles and available for test drives.

Wow, well Kirkland, WA hasn't plunked down that much money but they have invested in a few electric hybrids from the Green Car Company.
