Greenest Cars You Can Buy Right Now

June 6, 2014

Everybody's doing what they can to treat our planet better these days, so it's no surprise that the market for eco-friendly vehicles is growing. Plus having a more environmentally-friendly vehicle means less money you have to pay at the pump -- if you even have to pump gas at all!

AAA recently came out with a list of what they consider the "greenest" cars you can buy in 2014. Of the 83 vehicles on the Green Car List, the top 10 were dominated by both clean diesel and electric vehicles, with the 2013 Tesla S P85 being named #1. Other vehicles on the top 10 list included the 2014 Audi A7 TDI Quattro, 2012 Toyota RAV4 EV, and 2013 Nissan Leaf.

If you're considering any of these vehicles, make sure to use both TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise for the biggest savings.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar and Edmunds are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
