The Top 25 Green Cars Jun 5, 2017 by Jet (Driver Weekly)
Whether you want to minimize your impact on the planet with your next car purchase, save a ton of money at the pump, or are just curious how far we have come, here are the 25 greenest cars on the market.
The Mirai is unique on this list, as it is one of the rare fuel cell vehicles available. That means that availability is limited, as are refueling stations in most parts of the world. Even so, the Mirai shows us an option for the future of eco-friendly models with its 67 MPGe and the fact that the only byproduct from its powertrain is clean steam. At the moment, the Mirai is only available in select areas and as a lease, but it does come with three years of complimentary hydrogen fuel—making this an economical driving experiment for select leasees. Driving the Mirai is nice and quiet thanks to the acoustic noise-reducing glass on the windshield and front side windows. The audio and climate systems both use intelligent touch controls, and you get to relax in 8-way power-adjustable and heated seats with power lumbar and SofTex upholstery that feels like leather but is better for the environment. For now, limited fuel cell refueling keeps the advanced Mirai at the bottom of the list.
