Top 10 Eco-friendly Sport Cars
With technology getting better, many car companies have tried to underscore the issues of CO2 emissions at the backdrop of the worsening environmental issues it is but a responsibility to create available solutions to limit the car emissions.
For some of the more conventional models, it would be hard to get 0 emissions all together but efforts have been made to minimize the emissions but still address the need for good performance and reliability. With the dawn of electric cars, everyone is hoping that the future of car manufacturing would really eliminate or greatly reduce the abundance of CO2 emissions.
Here is a list of some of the green cars with low CO2 emissions that are also extremely stylish and ready for any road adventures.
Mercedes Benz SL300: Although it may have the extra weight of the folding hardtop, this car sure outdoes any other Porsche. It also packs a 231hp 3.0 V6 engine; this car has the balance of performance as well as producing emissions of 217g/km.
Lotus Evora: Some car enthusiasts complained that this car is not fast enough to be a supercar but with its 276hp 3.5-liter V6 engine and 205 g/km of CO2, this car truly is super in its own respect.
BMW Z4 sDrive23i: With a 199g/km CO2 emission, this entry level car produces 204hp and it could even drop its emissions at 192g/km but at the expense of some performance.
