Top 5 Green Cars

Several types of hybrid and electric cars have surfaced on the market. The competition is tough as automakers attempt to create the greenest, most fuel efficient car to date. This competition has produced quite a variety of green cars that can satisfy any consumer. Here are the top five best “green” cars on the market:

1

Nissan Leaf

Most consumers go green to save money on gas, yet a lot of hybrid and electric vehicles tend to be costly. Electric cars in particular are pretty expensive, but the Leaf is an exception. After government rebates, the fully-electric Leaf can run for about $23,000, the average price of a hybrid car. Consumers would break even in a significantly shorter time with the Leaf than with any other car.
