This month's Industry Pulse feature column is all about Rebecca Seiler and Jennifer Shaw, who are both engineers at Ford Motor Company. I had the pleasure of interviewing them both separately and learning how their work impacted the new 2013 Ford Fusion.
I first met Sebastian while he was on assignment covering advanced technology vehicles at the D.C. Auto Show. Since then, we regularly reunite at the auto shows sprinkled across the country throughout the year. Sebastian is the go-to guy for green vehicles over at the popular website, AutoblogGreen. Originally from the western half of Michigan, Sebastian’s cool demeanor gives him a vibe that seems far more suitable for Cuba or a similarly interesting place. Let’s check out Seb’s driving style…
How I Drive | Profile of Sebastian Blanco from AutoblogGreen
Daily Driver: 2007 Honda Fit
Time Spent Driving/day: 0-60 minutes, depending on if I’m working from home or headed into town
Road Most Traveled: US-131
Driving Style in One Word: Green
In-Car Must-Haves: iPod connector, a nice cup of tea
Driving Tunes: Pearl Jam, of course. I always let the media cars go back to their home tuned to XM22.
Time-saving technique: Avoiding jackrabbit starts may seem like a counterintuitive way to save time, but you’ll find you almost always get to the next light alongside everyone else, and if you’re going to the gas station less often, then you’re really saving time.
Hanging from rear view: Nothing at all.
