Green Driving

  • Electric

    Electric

    Avoid gas stations altogether. Electricity is cheap and ubiquitous. EVs are the greenest vehicles you can buy. But limited range means mostly local driving.

  • Hybrid

    Hybrid

    Gas-electric hybrids are the most efficient cars that don’t have a plug. There are nearly 40 available models—ranging from compact to full-size SUV.

  • Diesel

    Diesel

    Diesel vehicles have exceptional fuel efficiency and are fun to drive. Today's diesels are much cleaner and quieter than those from previous generations.

  • High MPG Gas

    High MPG Gas

    Great fuel efficiency is possible with conventional gas engines. There's a growing list of reasonably priced models getting 35 mpg or higher.

  • CNG

    Natural Gas

    Research is required to find a local station that pumps CNG (Compressed Natural Gas), and choice of models is limited. But the payoff is low-cost fuel that burns clean.

  • Ethanol

    Ethanol

    If you live near an E85 pump, a flex-fuel car utilizes a domestic source of farm-grown fuel.

  • Review: 2014 Ford Fusion Energi

    Review: 2014 Ford Fusion Energi

    Four short years ago, the Ford Fusion Hybrid won top car honors at the Detroit auto show.

Moreover, it showed that a super-efficient midsize sedan could take the form of an accessible handsome mainstream vehicle, rather than an eco-friendly kitchen appliance on wheels.

    Review: 2014 Cadillac ELR

    The hysterical television ad for the Cadillac ELR luxury electric vehicle would have us believe this: “You work hard, you create your own luck, and you gotta believe anything is possible.” It’s also intended convince us that the mean-looking electric sedan is worth its $76,000 base sticker price. Unfortunately, my week driving the ELR revealed those marketing messages, while worth a quick chuckle on YouTube, to be hype. This vehicle is a glitzy dud.
