The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has named the Toyota Prius c ‘Greenest Car of the Year.’ The award rates cars based upon environmental and fuel-efficiency parameters. For the first time since the rankings have been compiled, conventional cars do not appear anywhere on the list, instead being replaced by a variety of all-electric, conventional hybrid, and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Rounding out the top five, spot number two was filled by Honda Fit EV, while the original Toyota Prius snagged the number three slot. Toyota’s new Prius plug-in hybrid was number four, and the Honda Civic Hybrid was number five.

A production of Toyota Global, the video clip below provides an all-encompassing review of every vehicle on display at this year’s Toyota booth in Detroit. Of course, the entire Prius family of cars is the primary attraction, along with a handful of Toyota Racing vehicles, which are always crowd-pleasers. Many of the world’s largest automakers use events like NAIAS to show off their full lineup, though smaller companies just can’t afford the square-footage that Toyota, Ford, GM, Honda, Volkswagen, and others can. As you see in the clip, Toyota’s space includes concept cars, racing vehicles, production models, and everything in between.

The lead vehicle analyst for ACEEE, Shruti Vaidyanathan, noted that carmakers are working to meet fuel economy standards and bolstering their green model lineups at the same time. He explained, “The vehicles at the top of this year’s rankings are proof that automakers are really ramping up their offerings. There are more hybrid and electric options on the market this year than ever before and the race for a spot on the greenest list is increasingly competitive. ” The ACEEE evaluators used a stricter, more accurate methodology this year in order to precisely measure each vehicle’s environmental impact.
