It’s not a plug-in, nor is it a regular hybrid, its a clean diesel. But the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI was just named the Green Car of the Year at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and its rated at 30 mpg in city driving and 41 mpg on the highway. Plus you can get a $1,300 alternative fuel tax credit. The New York Times took a Jetta TDI for a spin and got even better mileage than advertised – they averaged 48 mpg on the highway.
