Drive green, Drive less

Top 10 green cars of the year

2012 have seen a lot of fuel efficient and green hit the market. The car industry still have a long way to go before cars are as green as we would like them to be but there in no doubt that the development is going in the right direction.

The top 10 green cars of 2012 that normally people can dream about owning are:

1. Smart fortwo ed
2. Renault Fluence Z.E
3. Vauxhall Ampera RE-EV
4. Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid

5. Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid
6. Kia Rio 1.1 CRDi EcoDynamics
7. Volkswagen Up! BlueMotion
8. Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4
9. Citroen DS5 HYbrid4
10. BMW 5 Series ActiveHybrid

The BMW 5 Series Active hybrid is our favorite as it combines good green credentials with a stunning design and is the best of the 10 to drive by far. The second best car to drive is the Prius.

We also want to give a special mentioning to the Fisker Karma, is too expensive to make it onto our list but it features some interesting new green technologies that we hope to see in more cars over the next few years.
