Greenest Models on the Market
Feb. 23, 2021—The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy released rankings for the greenest and even the meanest models on the road today.
According to the survey, which was conducted by GreenerCars, the greenest and friendliest vehicles to the environment include the Nissan Leaf, BMW i3, Hyundai Kona Electric, Toyota Prius Prime, and reclaiming its 2018 and 2019 title in first place, is the Hyundai Ioniq Electric.
The meanest models, or most damaging to the environment, include the Ram 1500 truck, Mercedes-Benz AM G 63, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra, and Jeep Grand Cherokee.
“Today’s results provide a glimpse into a promising future with more efficient and greener vehicle options, driven primarily by electric models,” said Peter Huether, senior research analyst for transportation at ACEEE. “Consumers will benefit from the increasing number and variety of electric models, some of which offer affordable alternatives to gasoline cars.”
