As government regulations evolve and green auto technology continues to advance, environmentally-friendly cars are increasingly becoming more and more popular amongst U.S. consumers.

This year, Kelley Blue Book, has compiled a list of the most efficient stand-out cars of the year that are chosen based on efficiency, price, practicality and powertrain, just in time for Earth Day.  Kelley Blue Book, The Trusted Resource®, is the only car valuation and information resource relied on both consumers and the auto industry.

Eco-friendly drivers in the market for a new car can learn about the 10 Best Green Cars of 2015, hand-selected by the expert editors at Kelley Blue Book www.kbb.com, the only vehicle valuation and information source trusted and relied upon by both consumers and the automotive industry. 

Taking the top spot on this annual list for the second year in a row is the all-electric BMW i3.

Here’s the Top 10:
BMW i3
Volkswagen e-Golf
Nissan Leaf
Toyota Prius
Honda Accord Hybrid
Tesla Model S
Chevrolet Volt
Toyota Camry Hybrid
Ford C-MAX Hybrid
Volkswagen Jetta TDI

More than just a compilation of the most fuel-efficient vehicles, the list includes a wide variety of standouts, each with its own appealing mix of efficiency, practicality and price. 

With more environmental-focused models available every year, choosing the 10 best among the pack is proving to be a challenging task.

“The list of ‘green’ vehicle standouts continues to blossom, and with strict Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) requirements coming down the pipeline, auto manufacturers are making stronger advancements each year in creating more environmentally friendly vehicles,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.


“Topping this list for the second year in a row is the BMW i3 – an electric car that can sprint to 60 mph in just over 7 seconds, and is made in a factory powered entirely by four wind turbines.  And if 81 miles of electric range doesn’t work for you, the i3 can be had with a small gas generator that lets you go as far as there are gas stations.”
