Twin Cities Auto Show Showcases Variety of Flex Fuel Vehicles

Like many auto shows, the Twin Cities Auto Show at the Minneapolis Convention Center on March 10-18, 2018, will feature the best vehicles automakers have to offer consumers.  What you may not know is that many of the vehicles on display are flex fuel vehicles, meaning they can run either on regular gasoline or on cleaner-burning ethanol blends. That’s particularly important to potential vehicle buyers in Minnesota, a state that leads the nation in the number of E85 stations, and also has many other stations offering E15, E30, and other ethanol blends.

One example of a flex fuel vehicle is the Ford F-150, the state’s most popular vehicle for a number of years. The Ford F-150 is available as a flex fuel vehicle in at least four different model options. The 2018 Chevrolet Impala is also available as a flex fuel vehicle, as is the sporty Dodge Charger. Prefer a luxury vehicle? Consider the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA2050 4matic, one of many high performance vehicles that thrive on higher-ethanol fuels like E85. Is an SUV more your style? The 2018 Toyota Sequoia 4WD can take the family anywhere in the state on E85 fuel or on other ethanol blends.

Not every environmentally conscious vehicle must have a  plug, nor are all “green car” options confined to a single make, model, or type of car.  There are more flex fuel vehicle options in 2018 than any other alternative fuel option in Minnesota, and drivers have noticed. Statewide, sales of E85 fuel increased by nearly 18 percent last year.
