Cars to Get New Fuel Economy Stickers and Mobile Medical Options

New car buyers will have some additional options in the future. Beginning in 2013, EPA has mandated new fuel economy labels that allow buyers to make more informed environmental choices.

In a separate development, Ford has announced the future cars will have medical monitoring options. Noting that 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day and 26 million Americans have diabetes, Ford is developing cars that can monitor blood sugar as well as heart rate that could warn of heart attack, and track breathing patterns for asthmatics or pollen counts for allergy sufferers.
