Cars and Cars reveals the most sustainable vehicles

Cars&Cars announced the ranking of the most sustainable vehicles in the face of the revolution that the automotive industry will witness as a result of policies aimed at decarbonization in the European Union.

Electricity tops this list. Since they do not emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and are gaining increasing consumer attention and confidence. However, In Spain they still represent a very small part of the market, Largely because of their prices. Outside of this option, the reference parameter is used to measure environmental efficiency It is total Emissions per kilometer traveled.

in general, The least polluting cars are those with low displacement and highly efficient engines.. But it is also true that when choosing a car, other features are taken into account, such as whether its size covers the family’s needs.

Diesel engines are more efficient

Diesel is a less aggressive fossil fuel, especially when it comes to on-road consumption. but, Lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions do not mean less pollution, because they expel more nitrogen oxides and fine particulate matter.which also generates a negative impact on air quality and human health.

Tighter environmental regulations and technological advances are pushing the industry to develop cleaner engines, such as those found in the following cars: Renault Clio DCI 100 CVWith 108 grams of CO2 per kilometer traveled and an average consumption per 100 kilometers of 4.1 litres; Opel Astra 1.6 CDTI With 97 grams of CO2 per kilometer traveled, and an average consumption per 100 kilometers of 5 litres.

Cleanest gasoline

Like diesel cars, gasoline cars have small, high-tech, highly efficient engines. They emit more greenhouse gases, but also release less nitrogen oxides and fine particulate matter into the atmosphere. The top three positions will be composed of the following: Toyota Aygo X With 109 grams of CO2 per kilometer traveled and an average consumption per 100 kilometers of 4.8 litres; Hyundai i10 1.0 MPI With 118 grams of CO2 per kilometer traveled and an average consumption per 100 kilometers of 4.8 litres; And the Kia Picanto 1.0 DPI With 116 grams of CO2 per kilometer traveled, and an average consumption per 100 kilometers of 5.1 litres.

Hybrids are less polluting

Ernesto Soto, CEO of Cars & Cars, Notes that “There is no doubt that the industry is heading towards a paradigm shift through the gradual conversion of the vehicle fleet to electricity. In this transition phase, hybrid vehicles are emerging as a solution, with the added advantage of being able to overcome some of the mobility restrictions imposed in many cities. This is why We think it could be a good investment in 2024 and in the coming years.

The highlights of the Cars&Cars analysis turned out to be the following: Toyota Yaris With 102 grams of CO2 per kilometer traveled and an average consumption per 100 kilometers of 4.10 litres; he Hyundai Ioniq With 102 grams of CO2 per kilometer, the average consumption per 100 kilometers is 3.6 litres.

As a final tip, Cars and cars It recommends identifying real needs, comparing models with similar characteristics and using the CO2 figure per kilometer as a specific filter. It also provides consumers with updated information and tools so that they can shop, choose and purchase the most suitable model in the most convenient and 100% online way.
