Toyota’s Green Cars

Toyota Motor Corporation, together with Honda Motors Co. Hyundai and Kia occupied the top positions for the recently conducted annual green car survey headed by Washington-based American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. Most of the cars were powered with ordinary diesel engines. Only three of the so-called environment friendly gas electric hybrids were on the list.Surely the technological advances in fuel economy and emission control of those cars were the primary reasons why they made it to the list. Toyota’s Prius Hybrid and Corolla were included in the top Five and they have been consistently in that position since last year.

The criteria or the standard for judging in the said survey included federal emissions ratings, average annual fuel cost and federal fuel economy estimates along with the industry’s record of pollution related public health costs.

The sole American car included in the top 12 is the General Motor's Pontiac Vibe together with the other three GM models. Under the hood of the Pontiac is Toyota’s engine and emission system. That makes it an American car with an Asian power system. It was tenth on the list side by side with another Toyota model, the Matrix.

On top of the list is Honda Insight, the two-seat automatic transmission equipped hybrid. The lowest rank went to DaimlerChrysler's Dodge Ram SRT-10.

Your car can also be transformed into an environment buddy especially if you equipped it with the best auto parts and accessories from Toyota Parts Online.
