Your choice of vehicle makes a difference for the environment. Use the EPA's Green Vehicle Guide to choose the cleanest vehicle (year 2000 or newer) that meets your needs.The guide helps you to choose the cleanest and most fuel-efficient vehicle that meets your needs. Low emissions and good fuel economy are both important for the environment. Using the information in this guide, you can choose the cleanest vehicle available that meets your needs. The choice you make will affect the quality of the air we breathe, because passenger cars and trucks are major contributors to air pollution. Even with continued improvements in air quality, almost 100 million people still live in areas with unhealthy levels of air pollution, much of which can be attributed to the increased use of passenger cars and trucks. Children and the elderly are the most at risk from air pollution. For older cars, look up the list of emission test data which EPA publishes annually. Please note that this data is not ranked in any way, and thus may be less user-friendly.
