Inside Mother Earth News’ “Guide to Green Cars,” on newsstands May 1 

Guide to Green Cars 2012 cover 

TOPEKA, Kan. (April 10, 2012) — Mother Earth News, the longest-running publication dedicated to sustainable lifestyles, will release its 98-page “Guide to Green Cars” on newsstands May 1.

The Guide names the Chevrolet Volt, Toyota Prius C, Toyota Prius V, Nissan Leaf, Volkswagen Passat TDI and Mitsubishi i as the best green cars in the 2012 model year.

“As a relatively new market, green cars are still surrounded by a lot of mystery and misinformation,” says John Rockhold, managing editor of Mother Earth News. “This primer will help buyers clearly understand their options and the issues – without the jargon that scares many people off.”

In addition to its 54 green car reviews, the Guide covers hybrid, plug-in hybrid, plug-in electric and diesel technology in layman’s terms; an introduction to biofuels; whether green cars provide a return on investment; how safe electric cars really are; tips to maximize mpg in any car; and more.
