This page contains the ultimate list of mainstream green cars, and will eventually link to reviews and buying information for each car as well.

Please note that the ‘year’ provided is the latest year for this particular model. E.g. the BMW i3 was released in 2014, but there’s a 2019 model which is going to be available imminently - hence this is what we list. We feel that this is a useful thing to mention, because you can see whether the listed cars might be using the latest tech or not. However we also link to the manufacturer’s website for each car, so you can get more information through that.
