This list shows the most eco friendly cars available to buy new in the UK 2015. The list is selected according to the unique Next Green Car Rating. This assesess the environmental impact of a vehicle across the whole lifecycle with each car being allocated a score out of 100 ranging from 0 for the greenest vehicles to 100+ for the most polluting. It also enables comparison across different fuel types such as electric, hybrid and petrol and diesel so the most environmental models can be identified.
Use the new car search to filter this list of eco friendly cars or to create a more focused list of environmentally friendly cars using selection criteria such as technology type, price, MPG, NGC Rating and more.
Finding an eco friendly car will result in reduced emissions. Cars emit not only emit tail-pipe CO2 emissions, which impact climate change, but also other pollutants such as NOx and particulates which effect air quality.
With several fully crash-tested electric car models now available, having a car with zero-emissions at the point of use is now a realistic option. For those not ready to move to a fully electric vehicle, it is possible to select a plug-in hybrid or a low emission hybrid, petrol or diesel car.
