What is a green car?

Green cars come in all different colours, not just green! What they have in common is that they are good for the environment. To qualify as a green car, a vehicle needs to have significantly lower than average carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions when compared to other cars of its size.

Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas which contributes to climate change. When you drive a green car, you are helping to reduce impact of climate change and protecting the environment. As a bonus, green cars are usually very fuel efficient, so you are likely to enjoy lower running costs.

Does your car qualify for our clean green rate?

Your car is likely to be on the list if:

  It is new or a demonstration vehicle

  It is more fuel efficient than average for a car of its size

  It is a hybrid vehicle

Some examples of cars which fit this criteria are certain models of Mazda 3, Ford Fiesta, Honda Jazz, Volkswagen Golf and many more^. Call us to find out if your car qualifies.

Why are we doing it?

Being more energy efficient and cutting emissions matters because it is the key to preventing climate change and saving the planet for future generations.

'If every new car buyer chose the lowest emissions car available, our national average carbon emissions would improve by 50 per cent.' – National Transport Commission.
