The top 9 Greenest cars in America are…

…actually Japanese.

  1. Honda Civic GX
  2. Toyota Prius
  3. Honda Civic Hybrid
  4. Smart ForTwo
  5. Toyota Yaris
  6. Nissan Altima Hybrid
  7. Toyota Corolla
  8. Mini Cooper / Clubman
  9. Ford Focus
  10. Toyota Camry Hybrid
  11. Honda Civic
  12. Honda Fit

And the Mini got lost, the Smart was tucked in someone’s pocket and was left at JFK, and the Ford is just a damn copycat, showing up and doing what everyone else does (yep, it ain’t getting off the hook so easily)

You will without a doubt have noticed that the top green car is not a Prius (which is the only green car I can think of). Actually I really can’t call them cars. First of all, if it can’t go above 60mph (100kph) it’s not a car. And I’ve got proof, look at the picture of the Civic GX2 below; THAT is not a car. It’s something from outer space.

Which is what all “green” cars look like. Why can’t they make it prettier? Lexus did a damn fine job.

  1. We traded in our 2001 Honda Civix GX for this one, and yes it can go 100 mph unlike those hybreads. At least Toyota gives them nice rims.

    One day, I’m gonna go green. Not because of the environment, but because of the cars are going to look so damn cool. But then again, with the threat of nuclear stand-offs and petrol depletion, electricity prices may go through the stratosphere. And then go through moon’s atmosphere. Much like here in the uk, Darin. The utility companies are mono/oligopolistic and raise their prices at least once a year and if we went green and used an electric car, I’d go broke and would have to sell it off before I even get my road tax/congestion charge ($16/day to get into London) rebate. We need more initiative.
    Thanks for the comment, Darin. and the link

    Hah, it’s a known fact that not only the greenest cars but also the most reliable ones come from Japan ;)

    And our cars don’t break down when it’s hot outside!
