Kelley Blue Book’s top ten green cars for 2010

The Kelley Blue Book has just come out with their listing of the Top Ten Green Cars for 2010.  You can read the full description of these cars right at the Kelley Blue Book site .  The list is not just based on fuel mileage – they include many other factors in their ratings.

“While it would have been simple just to have ticked off the Top 10 vehicles in fuel efficiency and let it go at that, we again sought out a variety of vehicle types because not everyone who wants to get greener will have their transportation needs met by a small sedan. To be considered for the green Top 10, each vehicle was required to offer fuel economy and CO2 emissions superior to the bulk of vehicles in its class and at the same time provide all the safety, creature comforts and driving enjoyment that would make it pleasant to own.”

If you just want to see the list, here it is.
