I should add that as of today, you can already use the Vehicle Sales Ontology in combination with GoodRelations in RDFa in a way that validates with Google - as of now!

Example:

    http://www.heppnetz.de/rdfa4google/tc4.html

Result in the Rich Snippet Testing Tool:

    http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.heppnetz.de%2Frdfa4google%2Ftc4.html&view=

Volkswagen is using this in combination with their GoodRelations extensions

    http://purl.org/vvo/ns 
and
    http://purl.org/coo/ns

Microformats have Vehicles as part of Item (http://microformats.org/wiki/item-examples#Vehicles).

I'm very keen to use Microdata but for something announced by Google, Bing and Yahoo (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/06/introducing-schemaorg-search-engines.html) the website doesn't seem very active, or does it all happen here?
