British website cleangreencars.co.uk has released three reports that show the improvements (and the negative numbers) that the UK car industry made from 2006 to 2007. Overall, cars sold in the UK improved the average CO2 production figures by 1.16 percent from 166.32 to 164.39 g/km. As you can see, there is still a long way to go until the expected average of 130 g/km for 2012.
New website on the block Clean Green Cars has spent a little time with their calculators and figured the CO2 performance of every automaker that sells more than 1,500 cars a year in the UK. Using the official CO2 output of the cars each company sells, correlated with how many of each car they sold in the first quarter of 2006 and then 2007, Clean Green Cars has created a list of which companies are the cleanest, from a CO2 emissions standpoint.
A new website, Clean Green Cars, subtitled "the green motoring guide," was launched this week to give British drivers a better idea about how best to buy a new green car and other green car-related items (including news). The site hopes to identify "the greenest cars on sale today - not just the greenest cars of all, but also the greenest by vehicle type" for UK car buyers.
