Next Green Car – the buyers guide to economical and environmentally-friendly cars

The core of the site is a database of all the new cars commercially available in the UK, through which visitors can search and compare cars according to many criteria including CO2, MPG, Car Tax Band and price.

The results are ranked according to Next Green Car's unique Green Car Rating which expresses a vehicle's environmental impact as a score out of 100 ranging from 0 for the greenest vehicles to 100+ for the most polluting, and allows for a fair comparison across technologies and fuel types.

Next Green Car covers all issues relating to green motoring including guides on all the emerging technologies (electric, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, LPG), tax, car clubs and more. As part of the electric car guide, Next Green Car has developed Zap-Map, the UK’s most comprehensive electric car charging point map.

Each year Next Green Car holds the annual Next Green Car Awards, to identify the greenest and best new cars of the year.

With this and all the latest green car news - Next Green Car is an essential destination for those researching a greener, more economical car purchase.
