San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) March 1, 2007
The year's most environmentally positive vehicles are highlighted in a Top Stories feature, "Green Car's Top 5," currently running on Green Car Journal Online (http://www.greencar.com). Green Car's Top 5 for 2007 include the Honda Civic GX, Lexus GS 450h, Mercedes-Benz E320 BLUETEC, Saturn Vue Green Line Hybrid, and Toyota Camry Hybrid.
The editors' top "green" picks were selected from scores of candidates including hybrids, high efficiency gasoline vehicles, advanced diesel models, and vehicles running on alternative fuels such as ethanol, natural gas, electricity, and hydrogen. All met the editors' selection criteria as production vehicles offered for sale by January 1, 2007.
"While hybrids are clearly on the minds of many these days, the inclusion of the popular natural gas Honda Civic and Mercedes-Benz E320 BLUETEC clean diesel show that this field is wide open," says Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal Online and the award-winning Green Car Journal consumer magazine. "Ultimately, it's not just about a specific technology or fuel. Winners in the marketplace must fulfill the traditional needs of buyers with regard to safety, quality, performance, and value, while offering substantially improved environmental performance as well."
The site's all-new "Perspective" series shares - for the very first time anywhere - stories from Green Car Journal's rich 16 years of archives. Currently featured is the first part of the series "Cars on Alcohol," which over the coming weeks will document the early beginnings of M85 methanol and E85 ethanol vehicles, along with the primary players that started the industry on this path.
