4 Green Cars You Can’t Ignore

  • 2 of 5

Toyota Prius Hybrid Car

1. Toyota Prius

Toyota has sold more Priuses than all other hybrids combined. Not until Toyota introduced the second-generation 2004 model did its popularity take off. When that model came out, it sported a new iconic silhouette—an arching aerodynamic sweep from hood to rear. Today, the Prius continues to combine 50-MPG efficiency, a deceptive amount of passenger and cargo space, and an MSRP that begins at $24,000.

The popularity of the Prius led Toyota to make an entire line of Prius vehicles—from the compact Prius C, to the Prius V wagon and the plug-in version of the hatchback. Given the introduction of the new models, 2012 is the best year ever for Prius sales in the United States—already eclipsing 150,000 units in August.

My wife's Volt.....11000 miles, 25 gallons in 15+ mos....they've treated her very well......

still like my Honda Civic hybrid -- I think it can give most Priuses a run for fuel efficiency mpg, but am considering a plug-in Prius in my future...or maybe a Leaf with the Volt being our distance car......
