AAA's Cost-Per-Point Top Green Cars

According to AAA, the very best green car that you can buy in 2015 is, not surprisingly, the Tesla Model S P85D. But that's an awfully expensive proposition, with its $120,000 starting price putting it way out of reach for most new car shoppers.

Since we've established that most of us, sadly, are in no position to park a brand-new Tesla in our garages, that means we probably need to look elsewhere if we have any hope of driving a relatively affordable car that doesn't make too hard a dent in the environment.

The team from AAA have put together a helpful list of cars that can help you make a car-buying decision that is responsible both fiscally and environmentally. Click on the image above for a list of AAA's Top Green Cars when scored on a Cost-Per-Point basis.
