The overall greenest car for the second straight year was the Tesla Roadster.
With transportation being responsible for around a third of our carbon footprint, driving a fuel efficient car is an easy way to significantly reduce your environmental impact. Many automakers have made huge strides in making their fleets more fuel efficient and cleaner burning.
The car companies who performed the best overall in the study were Tesla, smart, Mini, Honda, Volkswagen, Kia, and Toyota. Honda was especially notable with 3 of its vehicles receiving the coveted 4-leaf rating from Greenopia, being the only automaker with more than 1 vehicle receiving a 4-leaf score

OK that's great news!

Now, could someone please figure out why Smart is not listed AT ALL on Yahoo's "Top 100 Cars by Green Rating",(autos.yahoo.com/green_center-top100/) a listing that was "developed by Yahoo! Autos in consultation with the Environmental Defense Fund" (edf.org)" ?? Surely we should be there too...
