AAA unveils its favorite fuel-efficient vehicles in honor of Earth Day

Posted On Tue, April 19, 2011

With gas prices at the top of many motorists' minds, fuel-efficiency is the watchword for many people trying to save money. But with Earth Day approaching, saving the environment is the top priority at AAA.

John Nielsen, national director of auto repair, buying and consumer information at AAA, said it's never been easier for consumers to take part in the green movement.

"There has been an influx of 'green' technologies by automakers into the market, which is great for consumers looking to make a more environmentally conscious choice for their next vehicle purchase," said Nielsen.

AAA put together a list of some of the most fuel-efficient vehicles available in an array of categories such as electric power, plug-in hybrid electric, gasoline-electric hybrids, compressed natural gas and gasoline-powered cars. The Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt, Toyota Prius, Honda Civic GX and Chevy Cruz Eco were the top picks in their respective categories.

While these cars can help people save on gas, they may also lead to auto insurance savings, as companies sometimes offer discounts to fuel-efficient vehicles.
