Why is the Smart fortwo included? It gets horrible gas mileage when you consider its size, seating and luggage capacity. Multiple cars on the list get similar mileage ratings with seats for four or five people and a full size trunk.
With thousands of Chevy Volts on the road... it is clear that the "government" sticker is wrong. I have only read reports of much higher MPG's than the sticker indicates.
The lowest MPG for the first few thousand miles has been over 100mpg .. yes that is way more than most of the cars on this list. The "green book" obviously has gone with the Yellow Journalists approach. Say anything to get a response. The Plug-in technology of the Chevy Volt is obviously superior and is being copied by every manufacturer to some degree. This "green book" list is just another example of Government disconnect with reality.... must have been written by school teachers.
"Top Green" should just be a ranking of the best gas mileage. Therefor putting all electric over any gas cars and then ranking the gas cars by best gas mileage.
