I am especially looking forward to representing the typical American mom. I am not a techy or a car person. I'm into green living and environmental causes, but I don't know that much about the science or technology behind them. This trip will allow me to tell Ford what real moms are looking for in green vehicles.
Here are some things I look for in a vehicle:
- Room enough to haul baby and baby stuff, but not so much room I feel like I'm driving a boat.
- Safety, safety, safety. I wanna see air bags popping out of every nook and cranny.
- Green improvements that save me money on gas and maintenance.
- Space in the front passenger seat for me and a toddler to take a nursing break while out and about. (Haha. Obviously this one is a joke. Kinda.)
I'll also have the opportunity to participate in a Q & A with some of the designers and engineers at Ford. Let me know what questions you'd like me to ask.
P.S. I'm an awful flyer. Wish me luck! (Or really wish the person in the seat next to me luck.)
