GreenCars is part of Lithia & Driveway

Our story began in 1946, when Walter DeBoer opened a car dealership in Ashland, Oregon. His goal was to better people’s lives through personal transportation. Seventy-seven years later, Lithia & Driveway (NYSE:LAD) is still committed to making the world a better place by giving consumers options for cleaner transportation. GreenCars is our platform to educate, advise and inform consumers on how to drive green.
