Insider's Guide: New 2010 Green Vehicle Debuts
A look at hybrids, clean diesels, and EVs rolling out for 2010
IntroductionThanks to government regulation, advancing technology, fierce competition and good ol' consumer demand, cars are on an inevitable march to cleaner tailpipe emissions. More green tech is available on our roads these days than at any other time in automotive history (although a surprising number have "blue" in their names), but exactly what form it takes depends largely on the manufacturer. There are diesels, electrics, hybrids, extended range electrics…the list gets even longer when you start throwing flex-fuel ethanol-powered cars into the mix. You'd be here all day if we listed every single green-tech car available today, so to give you an idea of what's coming out next, we've narrowed the list down to cars that are 2010 models, or are coming to market in the calendar-year 2010.
