Honda Civic GX Tops Greenest Cars List for Eighth Straight Year

No Comments on Honda Civic GX Tops Greenest Cars List for Eighth Straight Year

Here is a blog post from Forbes, written by William Pentland, about the Honda Civic GX receiving the top vote for the greenest vehicle from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy

Honda Claims Greenest Car Honors, Again

Honda’s Civic GX took the top spot in the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy’s 14th annual “green car” rankings for the eighth consecutive year.

Honda managed to secure the title amidst a rapidly expanding field of electric cars, plug-in electric hybrids, gasoline hybrids, diesels, natural gas vehicles, and the relentlessly improving “conventional” gasoline vehicles. But below the top spot, the “Greenest” list sees a shake-up: the all-electric Nissan Leaf places second, followed by the gasoline-powered Smart Fortwo. Hybrids take the next three spots, followed closely by Ford’s new Fiesta SFE and the Chevrolet Cruze Eco. Also notable on this year’s list is the Hyundai Elantra, with a 4 mile-per-gallon jump in fuel economy over the 2010 model. Rounding out the “Greenest” are the Mazda 2 and the much-touted Chevrolet Volt “extended-range EV.”

The strong showing of conventional vehicles in the top twelve is a testament to how serious manufacturers have gotten about recasting these vehicles as fuel-sippers with transmission refinements, weight savings, and sophisticated internal combustion engines.

“We’re seeing an increasing number of highly efficient gasoline options from both foreign and domestic automakers along with the first electric vehicles. Ford introduced the Fiesta this year and Chevrolet debuted the Cruze, both of which do exceedingly well in our ratings,” said ACEEE vehicle analyst Shruti Vaidyanathan.
