This week marks the Environmental Transport Association’s “Green Transport Week”, and to kick it off they’ve released a ranked list of the most environmentally friendly vehicles – all 1300 of them! To save you the trouble of reading them all, the highlights are the top ranking Toyota Yaris. Following closely in other categories are the Honda Civic Hybrid, BMW 3 Series 320d Saloon, BMW 5 Series 520d Saloon, Toyota Rav4, and Jaguar’s XJ. Coming in dead last is Dodge’s SRT-10, followed closely by Lamborghini Murcielago. The list is intended to raise awareness and encourage drivers to purchase the vehicles they need, rather than the vehicles they want. Feel free to check out the whole list here, or just be happy that you have a reason to pat yourself on a back for not driving a Lamborghini. Photo credit
