With all the incentives to drive an eco-friendly car, both for us and mother nature, it makes it more and more difficult to choose just six vehicles for the annual Mother Nature News: Best Green Cars list. We seem to be in the early stages of a movement in car history. The hybrid car has become the ordinary. They are even making hybrid sports cars and SUV’s.
However, a few cars seem to always come at the top of the list. They have had the hybrid concept down for some time now, and worse, they know it. Well, maybe it’s not worse for the environment, but it’s worse for their competitors!
What are the best green cars available? We have given you a rundown of the best six cars named to Mother Nature News. We have included the pricing and all the specs needed to make an accurate decision on the best eco-friendly car for you. They definitely aren’t the most stylish available, however, if the environment and gas mileage are important to you, you are definitely going to want to check out these rides!
Unfortunately, none of the SUV’s or trucks made it into this list. However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t fantastic buys, especially if you are going to buy an SUV one way or another.
Chevrolet Volt: Although Chevy is relatively new to the hybrid game, the Volt isn’t a back crack at it. The gas mileage is excellent, they have an superb eco rating, and the incentives for buying one makes it a win/win for everybody. America hasn’t quite caught onto the hybrid market as much as Toyota, but this isn’t a bad try.
Toyota Prius C: The Prius is the centerpiece of hybrid vehicles. Everybody knows that a Prius is and the purpose it serves. This speaks to why there is two Prius’ on this list. Toyota has been absolutely dominating the hybrid market, and they will continue to the way things are going.
Toyota Prius V: Here she is, another Prius. This is a slight upgrade from the previous Prius. This comes with all the features, excellent gas mileage, etc. It really just leaves a small footprint, and that’s what we look for in these types of cars.
Nissan Leaf: Alright, the elephant in the room, we think the name is incredibly lame. I mean the Nissan Leaf? Give us a break. Now that we got that superficial discrepancy out of the way, great car.
Volkswagen Passat TDI: Here is the Nordic’s crack at a hybrid. They do everything extraordinarily, so there is really no reason they won’t do well in the hybrid market.
Mitsubishi i: Mitsubishi has limited options for a hybrid. This car should be a great pick up, however. We are big fans of Asian cars.
There you have it. The top six cars names to Mother Nature News. We are very impressed with the advancements being made on the hybrid car front. We hope you are impressed enough to pick one up for yourself!
