Several of the best-selling cars in the country are now being offered in hybrid, diesel or even pure electric form, giving buyers the ability to drive the car they want with the powertrain they prefer. After driving and testing nearly every new vehicle on the market today, Kelley Blue Book's editors compiled a 10 Best Green Cars list that provides a roadmap for consumers looking to get more miles from each gallon of gasoline, or to eliminate gasoline altogether. Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book, revealed this year's list and what eco-conscious shoppers should look for when considering a new car.
