This is pathetic... no showings from the "big 3" ... terrible

Heres a quick breakdown of the list of the top 12 greenest cars for 2007:
1. Honda Civic GX (actually runs on natural gas) 2. Toyota Prius 3. Honda Civic Hybrid 4. Nissan Altima Hybrid 5. Toyota Yaris 6. Toyota Corolla 7. Toyota Camry Hybrid 8. Honda Fit 9. Kia Rio5 10. Hyundai Accent 11. Hyundai Elantra 12. Honda Civic
I guess until the Ford F-150, the Chevy Silverado or the Dodge Ram magically become environmentally friendly, it doesnt appear that were going to see an American car on this list any time soon.

Yes, yes, yes, sure - this is why the big three are in the financial toilet.
The vast majority of car purchasers could not give a flying rat's ass (or a rat's flying ass) how "green" their vehicle is. Fuel economy is surely part of a purchase decision, but most people could not care less how much pollution they generate, they are merely concerned with the annual fuel cost of the vehicle.
The writer of this article is trying to promote green hysteria, as usual.

The only car on the list I would consider is #12, the regular Civic.

Until Hinda Civic can haul 1500 lbs, I don't guess we will see it on the list of work trucks.

That is because domestic buyer are smarter. They are not going to spend all that extra money to buy overpriced and underpowered cars when the cars they buy already produce relatively little pollution Ford currently offers 'Flexfuel' vehicles that run on NG, propane, or ethanol and has for ten years or more. They also have several hybrids on the market but buyer prefer the lower cost conventionally powered versions Better to leave the experimental cars to the tree huggers, they make them feel good and it gives them something to talk about at the country club LOL

Anybody who would endanger the life of their family by putting them is a midget car to save a few relative few dollars a year on fuel is a fool. All the 'green' vehicle sales in the US combined do not amount to 1% of all the vehicles sold in the US LOL

I'm not surprised that any fool that would endanger the life of their family by putting them is a midget car to save a few relative few dollars a year on fuel, would also pay over MSRP for any car LOL

How said the were not reliable? Ten years from now the hybrids of today will languish on used car lots and be sold to collectors as novelty cars LOL

GM's proposed car will probably be something meant to run on nuclear fusion or unobtainium and have a pushrod engine.

And be replaced with what?
Another auto engineer, Patrick Bedhard, thinks hybrids are a good idea, at least if gas costs enough. OTOH he hates electrics, including plug-in hybrids.

Some are, some aren't. You're entitled to your opinion if you're right, but on whole you're wrong, as the average foreign brand buyer has more education, and it's hard to believe that more education correlates negatively with IQ.

More education does correlate with more income. That represents a problem for domestics.

I guess it depend on which magazine one chooses to believe. The Focus has consistently been listed as a "best buy" in several consumer magazines
