GreenCars.org, in conjunction with the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, has published their 'greenest cars for 2012' rankings.
Guess what's NOT on the list?
The Chevy Volt, favorite of our president, and a car that gets roughly $250,000 in government subsidies to be produced.
In fact, the Volt failed to make the list of Greener Choices for 2012, though the Chevy Equinox and Ford F150 Pickup FFV did.
ACEEE is “an independent, nonprofit research group dedicated to advancing energy efficiency as a means of promoting economic prosperity, energy security, and environmental protection.”
Here is the list with the ranking and the model:
58 MITSUBISHI I-MIEV
55 HONDA CIVIC NATURAL GAS
55 NISSAN LEAF
54 TOYOTA PRIUS
53 HONDA INSIGHT
53 SMART FORTWO CABRIOLET/COUPE
52 SCION IQ
52 HONDA CIVIC HYBRID
51 LEXUS CT200H
51 TOYOTA CAMRY HYBRID LE
50 HONDA CR-Z
50 TOYOTA YARIS
The website also lists the 'meanest vehicles for the environment,' as if an inanimate object can be mean.
