Top 5 Eco-Vehicles That Will Launch In These Few Year

Buzz It


Detroit Auto Show have launch this week with some conceptual and production ready hybrid vehicles. Electric vehicle is a trend now and many of the car manufacturers starting to design and production some Eco-friendly cars. Read more for the top 5 Eco-vehicles details and images.

2011 Honda CR-Z
Slated to be released later this year, this small hatchback has only a modest 36 mpg in the city and 38 on the highway (numbers that can definitely be improved), but it is undoubtably a step in the right direction.

Fiat 500 BEV
The Fiat 500 has finally made it state-side in full-electric form, thanks to Chrysler’s EV technology. This car has no official release date but there is strong support for it here in the states and signs that Chrysler and Fiat are moving towards a greener future.

Volkswagen’s New Compact Coupe Concept
This streamlined VW is the first to sport a full hybrid drivetrain. Under the hood sits a 1.4 Liter Inline 4 Cylinder Engine partnered with a 20 kWatt motor. Currently being considered for production, this car gets an estimated 45 mpg and will also feature an all-electric mode, although no specific range has been defined.

2011 Ford Focus
This car will be all-electric by 2011 and will support a 80-100 mile range, which means Ford will be the first company to produce an all-electric car for the entire world market.

Toyota FT-CH
Toyota, the current leader in hybrid technology, has released this beautiful FT-CH concept, which is a full hybrid and is being tauted as a cheaper, younger, and smaller version of the Prius. We can only hope this car is released in the near future, as Toyota’s existing hybrid technology paired with a smaller, lighter vehicle heralds significant gains in MPG.
