What’s the latest craze in automotive purchasing? Buying “green!” Named for their eco-friendly systems, “green” cars reduce the amount of emissions and pollution they produce. They are able to do this because they run predominantly off of ethanol or electricity rather than just regular fossil fuels.

Benefits of driving a “green” car.

On top of being good for the environment, these fuel-efficient cars are great for your wallet. Since they run on electricity or a combination of electricity and hydrogen-based fuel, you buy a fraction of the amount of gas you would for a regular vehicle. Fuel-efficient cars don’t just save you money at the gas pump, they also help you save in other ways! For one, driving a fuel-efficient automobile could qualify you for some potential tax breaks. Many green cars also have fewer maintenance requirements than regular cars.
