GreenerCars.org Helps Users Select Most Planet Friendly Green Cars
GreenerCars.org scores and ranks cars, trucks, minivans, and SUVs according to environmental friendliness. Learn which vehicles are this year's "greenest" and "meanest," as well as how to shop for a green vehicle.
GreenerCars.org will help users select green cars that are the most friendly to the planet while meeting your transportation needs. Based on official emissions and fuel-economy tests, and other specifications reported by auto manufacturers, we calculate a Green Score for each car, minivan, pickup, and SUV on the market. The Green Score falls on a scale of zero to 100. A higher score implies a greener car, meaning a vehicle having a lower environmental impact.
Green Scores and Class Rankings
To make it easy to find the most planet-friendly new cars and trucks available this year, our Highlights of the Model Year page identifies not only the overall Greenest Vehicles of 2008, but also the models with the highest Green Scores in each class, "The Best of 2008." The easiest way to buy green is to select a vehicle from this "Best of 2008" list.
For most consumers, the Green Score and Class Ranking provide a good indication of a vehicle's environmental performance. Full details on how our Green Scores are calculated are found in ACEEE's Green Book. Sign up for instant online access to the full ACEEE's Green Book® Online database, and view Green Scores and environmental information about all model year 2008 vehicles (more than 1,300 vehicle configurations). Additionally, you will automatically receive free access to all model year 2000-2007 vehicles (another 10,550 listings). To match a model in the showroom with a listing in ACEEE's Green Book® Online, first match its engine size and transmission type (automatic, manual, 4wd, etc.), followed by the city and highway fuel economy ratings found on the vehicle window label. Lastly, examine the window sticker or underhood ID to match the vehicle's emission standard.
Subscription options include a 30-day "car shopper's special," or a full annual subscription. The annual subscription includes regular updates and ratings for new model releases throughout the year.
