Since the introduction of the Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Volt has pretty much answered the question “who's the greenest of them all?”, we'll get right into it and tell you that the two electric vehicles have been chosen at the top of AAA's list.
Going through the list of models selected by the organization as being among the greenest, we can't help but notice the similarities between their choices and the ones made by KBB (after all, how many models can you slap with a green emblem, if only a handful meet the criteria?).
The choices made by AAA when it comes to the greenest vehicles available on the American market continue with the Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ hybrids, Toyota Prius, Hyundai Sonata, Honda Civic GX, Chevrolet Cruze Eco and Audi A3.
On AAA's list a few hydrogen vehicles made it as well, despite the fact that this type of vehicle is not at all as present on the market. The Honda FCX Clarity is the organization's favorite fuel cell powered car.
"There has been an influx of 'green' technologies by automakers into the market, which is great for consumers looking to make a more environmentally-conscious choice for their next vehicle purchase," said John Nielsen, AAA national director of Auto Repair, Buying and Consumer Information.
"Increasing the efficiency of the cars we drive means that less fuel is burned for every mile driven. That's great news for the environment and our pocketbooks."
