Alanis Morissette partners with Mercedes-Benz
Seven-time Grammy winning artist Alanis Morissette has
partnered with Mercedes-Benz and its “Mixed Tape” online music magazine
for “Underneath,” the first video/single from her new album. Morissette,
a strong supporter of environmental causes and organizations, chose the
fuel-efficient Mercedes-Benz E320 BlueTEC for the music clip.
In the video, which was shot in Los Angeles, Morissette is sitting at
a bus stop wearing a “Save the Earth” t-shirt and distributing fliers
to encourage concern for the environment. When a Mercedes-Benz E320 BlueTEC
passes by, Morissette salutes the Mercedes driver in appreciation for
their environmentally aware choice.
BlueTEC denotes state-of-the-art engine and exhaust technology which
produces the cleanest diesels available on the market. Utilizing this
technology, the V6-powered E320 BlueTEC diesel is able to provide the
powerful torque of a large V8 engine with the low fuel consumption of
a four-cylinder compact. This fall, the E320 BlueTEC sedan will be joined
by a trio of Mercedes-Benz SUV’s using this advanced powerplant, including
ML320 BlueTEC SUV, the larger GL320 BlueTEC, and the versatile R320 BlueTEC.
Beyond their fuel efficiency, from an environmental standpoint, BlueTEC
vehicles are the cleanest diesels available. Since diesels inherently
burn less fuel than gasoline vehicles, they also produce significantly
lower emissions of carbon dioxide (C02). Also, in BlueTEC vehicles, particulate
levels are reduced to levels comparable or better than that of gasoline-powered
vehicles. Last year, the Mercedes-Benz E320 BlueTEC was named the “2007
World Green Car”.
