Best environmentally friendly cars

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.
