Defining Green Car

Currently green car has a very broad definition and can include everything from a fuel-effecient high mpg car to eco-friendly alternative fuel vehicles or plug-in hybrids.

A rather vague category of small cars is often counted as green not only because of their inherent fuel economy but because of smaller manufacturing carbon footprints. Additionally, city cars or urban cars have been identified as green because of their low-power engines and intended short-range urban area use.

Although some would argue, a vehicle does not have to be small to be green. Many improvements are being made in the fuel efficiency and manufacturing of trucks, vans, and SUVs. Today, choices in hybrid SUVs and hybrid pickup trucks are becoming almost as plentiful as hybrid passenger cars.
