Obama’s Cadillac Roadside Assistance Program Announced


— President Barack Obama has announced the Cadillac Roadstar assistance program, aimed at reducing fuel consumption for vehicles on public roads.

The president announced the program, dubbed the Cadillac-Bentley Roadstar, in a speech to the American Society of Civil Engineers’ annual conference here on Wednesday.

The Cadillac Roadstars are the newest generation of high-mileage vehicles, but their engines are a hybrid, meaning they use hydrogen fuel to generate power, while also providing fuel-saving technology, the White House said.

The program is available for all vehicles made after 2017.

It offers discounts on gas and diesel for those with a mileage of between 60,000 and 120,000 miles per year.
