Ford Creates A Fragrance That Smells Like Gasoline

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with the downside of electric cars. They're very quiet. They're very slowly getting less pricey and charging stations are growing more common. But when you drive one, you must do without the smell of gasoline, one of the more evocative scents of the road.
