Top 4 Environment Friendly European Cars

Are you looking to drive an environmentally friendly vehicle that will provide comfort, style, and class? These five green brands provide eco-friendly options that guarantee years of ongoing satisfaction.

Let’s get started!

1. Audi A3 E-Tron Ultra

Eco-friendly and electric vehicles should offer a high mile-per-gallon rate, a reasonable price, and low CO2 emissions per mile. The rating on an Audi A3 E-Tron Ultra is 41 mpg and 138 CO2 g/mile. Expert reviews claim the vehicle still needs an interior upgrade. However, from the exterior, the Ultra is sleek, smooth, and ready to roll. As of 2017, the Audi A3 E-Tron Ultra is Audi’s best green vehicle. It offers an electric assist option, making it an official hybrid. There are few things not to love about this recent release – especially from Audi.

2. Volkswagen E-Golf

This particular electric vehicle offers an incredibly impressive number of electric miles per gallon. At 116 whopping miles and 201 CO2 g/mile, the Volkswagen e-Golf is worth the price it averages in the market. The compact car requires no gasoline to function and can drive up to 83 miles per charge. For some experts, this isn’t quite enough length from a full charge. However, Volkswagen is only improving its game. We’ll see another impressive, eco-friendly vehicle in the coming years.

3. Skoda Citigo G-Tec

This hybrid vehicle is budget and eco-friendly, with CO2 emissions at less than 85 CO2 g/mile. When it comes to the Citigo G-Tec, there is little difference between the outside and inside – making service and maintenance for your Skoda a breeze. There are low levels of gas consumption and emissions, as the vehicle uses an alternative fuel source known as CNG. Since all Skoda vehicles are designed to be eco-friendly and efficient, this vehicle is anything but surprising. In fact, there is an entire G-Tec line to explore.

4. BMW i8 Electric Car Protonic

The BMW i8 is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle with an electric motor in the front axle to power the front wheels. It offers a sleek, modern design and a comfortable interior. While the i8 is far more expensive than other European electric cars, it offers a 357-hp hybrid power train, the ability to hit 60 mph in four seconds, and 38 MPG. Experts have shared concerns about regenerative braking and eco-friendly tires hindering performance. However, this seems well worth it for a vehicle with sharp steering, familiar controls, and unbeatable style.
