Greener Car Choices

You’re looking for a new car, but the electric vehicles on the market just aren’t what you’re looking for, and Kelly Blue Book just isn’t cutting it.

Simple Solution

GreenCars.org is what you need. It ranks cars by class and how green they are. So if you’re looking for the greenest minivan, select minivans and the model year you’re interested and you’ll get an easy to read breakdown.

Many green building managers (like those managing LEED certified buildings) use GreenCars.org to determine if a car qualifies as green enough for preferable parking. For example, LEED v4 requires cars that get preferred parking score at least 45 points as ranked by GreenCars.org. GreenCars.org falls under the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE).
