NGO Names Europe's Greenest Carmakers

ngo names europes greenest carmakers

As IT Wire reports, the European Federation for Transport and Environment (EFTE) is kicking ass and naming names. Well, naming names. The environmental pressure group– claiming to represent 49 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in 21 countries– compiled a list ranking auto manufacturers by tailpipe cleanliness, based on 2006 date. And who's the fairest of them all? The EFTE gives the green gong to PSA Peugeot Citroën SA. On average, the French manufacturer's cars emit 229 grams of CO2 per mile. Fiat SpA was next with 232 g/mile. The worst? BMW with 297 g/mile and Daimler AG at 303 g/mile. Here's how EFTE's ratings shake down:

1. PSA – 229 grams CO2/mile


2. FIat – 232


3. Renault – 237


4. Toyota – 246


5. Honda – 248


6. GM – 253


7. Ford – 261


8. VW & Suzuki (tie) – 268


10. Hyundai – 269


11. Nissan – 271


12. Mazda – 279


13. BMW – 297


14. Daimler AG – 303
