Car insurance customers could see green revolution

Aussie drivers looking to compare car insurance prices could see an influx of eco-friendly models leaving the production lines in the near future.

Ambassador for the Czech Republic in Australia Dr Hynek Kmonicek has been running the rule over cutting edge environmentally-friendly car technology at Melbourne's RMIT University.

The European country is hoping to collaborate with Australia on developing a raft of new motors that are kinder on the environment.

Both countries have their strengths, as the Czech Republic has a thriving automotive sector with more than 850 companies, while Australia is one of only 13 nations in the world to have the capability to produce a vehicle from scratch and sell it.

A joint venture could spell good news for green-fingered Aussies who are looking to purchase a motor that releases fewer harmful emissions.

The demand for environmentally-friendly cars could intensify, as new carbon tax laws may threaten the public transport system.

Professor John Stanley, from the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies at Sydney University told NineMSN that he harboured concerns over the plight of the transport infrastructure.ADNFCR-1761-ID-800615020-ADNFCR
