Cars aren't exactly the greenest machines in the world, but it's a fact of life that some of us need them in order to make our lives work better.
As I'm thinking of buying a new car, I thought I'd do some investigations into how green they are. And I thought I'd share some stuff with you, just in case you're looking into buying a car too.
First of all, I asked the people at WorldChanging if they knew of any data. They pointed me towards the website of the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA). Data available includes new car fuel consumption and exhaust emissions figures.
All worth looking at before you book a test drive.
