Green Cars for 2011

Check out this slideshow of new hybrids and fuel-efficient vehicles that save money and emissions, including the no-gasoline-required Nissan Leaf

Toyota Prius

The best-known hybrid sits on top of the fuel-efficiency heap, achieving better mileage than any other vehicle. LED lights help lower power consumption, while the solar-powered ventilation system helps pre-cool the interior — without starting the vehicle or using the AC — when the vehicle’s been parked in the hot sun. 

Coolest feature: Remote activation of the air conditioning system, which is powered by the hybrid battery instead of gas.

Annual fuel cost: $798
Mileage (litres/100 km): 3.7 city/4.0 highway
