Global auto industry slowly adapts to alternative energy

The automobile industry, hard hit by the recession, is facing a fundamental shift. Almost entirely reliant on gasoline up until now, auto makers face the need to innovate by using alternate sources of energy.

Daljit Dhaliwal speaks with Vijay Vaitheeswaran, a correspondent for The Economist and the co-author of “Zoom: The Global Race to Fuel the Car of the Future,” about what he calls the coming “end of the age of oil.”
