We owe it to the future generations to leave the world a much better place than we found it. By the look of things, we are not doing a good job of that, but that does not mean that we should stop striving for the best. You love your car, you love its “vroom” power. However, do you know that its carbon emission is contributing to the depletion of the ozone layer and global warming? This in turn leads to floods, heat waves, famines and other natural calamities at unprecedented levels. But there is something you can do about that … buy a green car. Yes, green, as in eco-friendly, environmental-friendly and so on.
Here are some of the best green cars to consider buying:
This car was an instant hit with many people in the world. In fact, many Hollywood celebrities own or have owned this wonderful car. And it is not because they cannot afford fuel guzzlers, but because they would like to do their bit for saving the environment from the harmful emissions. The Toyota Prius has a 1.8 liter petrol engine and when combined with the electric motor, this car can deliver a sweet 23 kilometers per liter on the highway and about 20 kilometers per liter in the city. That is a great deal there, isn’t it? Even Larry Davis, a respected TV creator, writer and producer drives around in a Prius.
This is yet another of the great energy saver cars in the world today. You can check whether BEFORWARD has a secondhand variety of the same for sale, and do the world one good turn by buying this green car. Nissan Leaf can do all of 172 kilometers of travel using the battery alone. This car does the battery alone, therefore meaning it is a zero emission car. While the reviews posted online say that it depreciates fast, well, it is still a very sweet car.
While the Prius and Nissan Leaf are considered everyday green cars for just about anyone, well, you should see the Lexus LS600H if you love them big, luxurious and eco-friendly. This one comes with a V8 engine, 5-liter and has two electric motors, thus lowering its emissions admirably, for such a huge car.
Honda Civic Hybrid Car
No article about hybrid cars would be just without the inclusion of the Honda Civic hybrid. The 2015 one was not only a performer, but a good looker and feature-full as well. What with it coming with a rearview camera, a 7-inch display audio and many more? For fuel economy, well, how does 19km/liter in the city and 21 km/l on the highway sound? Not bad at all.
BMW 2 Series Active Tourer
This car will give you freedom, luxury, comfort and performance, yet very economically. People associate the name BMW with high fuel consumption and luxury, but today, you can drive the car of your dreams and save money at the same time. This car has a 3-cylinder petrol engine at the front while the plug-in electric motor is at the back. The BMW-only electrical xDrive offers Dynamic Stability Control, which improves the traction of the car by distributing the force of propulsion to all wheels equally. The intelligent energy saving driving mode makes this car a must-have, with different electric driving options such as standard, max or save battery modes.
