As you may have already noticed, there has been a huge rise in the use and notability of energy efficient cars recently, a revolution that will eventually shape our future. Technology has transformed dramatically over the past decade and energy efficient cars now can look and feel better than many of the inefficient cars on the market.
So, for all you car lovers we have developed a small article of the top 5 energy efficient cars that are out and about on sale at the minute.
1 – Peugeot 308 Hatchback
The new Peugeot 308 Hatchback is the very first hybrid car that has been produced by Peugeot and actually produces so little carbon dioxide through a very carefully put together carbon emission system, that road tax on it is absolutely free! With a 1.6 litre engine and 140kgs less weight, this Peugeot 308 Hatchback can go from 0-62 in 10 seconds.
2 – Toyota Prius Hybrid Hatchback
Selling for around £5000, the Toyota Prius was pretty much the first mass produced hybrid car to grace the world with a fuel economy of up to 134.5mpg. If you live in or around London you can also reap extra benefits from this car as it is actually exempt from paying the congestion charge! This Quiet and smooth car relies on advanced engine and break technology to charge the battery.
3- Mitsubishi Outlander PHEW SUV
For a more spacious, family sized car option there is the new Mitubishi Outlander PHEV SUV that can be purchased with an additional government grant of £5000 which applies to all plug in electric hybrid cars. Because the outlander is a plug in hybrid, this means there is only room for 5 seats as opposed to 7, however it can return up to 148mpg and can travel 31 miles using the battery power only and has a firmly gripped four wheel drive.
4 – BMW i3 Hatchback.
Another spacious family size option is the new BMW i3 Hatchback. This 4 door lightweight beast can be charged from an electrical socket but also uses a small petrol engine to charge the battery, giving the vehicle a range of more than 200 miles and fuel savings of up to 470mpg. BMW have really created a brilliant energy efficient nippy car with a swanky interior and tonnes of space.
5- Porsche Panamera SE- Hybrid.
For a more up market sports option, the new Porsche Panamera SE Hybrid’s v6 engine allows the porche to travel from 0 -63 mph in just 5 seconds! The car also comes with huge benefits such as free road tax and exemption from the congestion charge in London. Not only does the car look stunning from the outside, but the luxury interior makes this one of the best energy efficient cars available!
So there you have it – a rather eclectic mix of the top energy efficient cars of 2015 from Tempo! Make your energy efficient approach broader!
