The new Renault ZOE is a game changer for electric cars – from £13,995, it’s half the price of a Nissan LEAF, it has a longer range (130 miles), it’s good to drive and it's well designed.

The BMW ActiveHybrid3 is almost as fast as a BMW M3, but with less than half of the M3’s emissions, and more than double its fuel economy – find out more about why we think this is one of the best hybrids you can buy.

The new Audi A3 1.6 TDI is a quality product that has very few areas of weakness, and it has official combined economy of 74.3mpg, with emissions of just 99g/km CO2.
In our Green Car Guide we focus on cars with economy and emissions figures that are best in class. We have tested the new cars available in the UK on and off road, measuring their performance and fuel efficiency.
