Hybrid scorecard

Get the most green bang for your greenback with hybrid rating chart

Many people would agree that perhaps the next best thing to giving up one’s standard CO2-emitting automobile entirely (for a bike, perhaps?) is getting rid of it in favor of a hybrid car. But since all hybrids are not equal when it comes to such things as miles per gallon of gas and “environmental-improvement” capacity, thankfully there is the Union of Concerned ScientistsHybrid Scorecard. The Toyota Prius comes out on top among non-luxury hybrids, the Lexus CT 200h wins in the luxury category. Go to www.hybridcenter.org/hybrid-scorecard to see more ratings.
