Drive Clean Website By CARB
A buying guide for clean and efficient vehicles.
Looking to reduce your carbon footprint, save money or just
contribute less to that nasty smog? Well, this is your buying guide to
the cleanest, most efficient cars on the market.
Californians drive 825 million miles every day – producing 5.4 million tons of smog forming pollutants and more than 350,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions daily. Since more than 50% of California's total smog pollution and 38% greenhouse gas pollution comes from motor vehicles, your car is a good place to start cleaning things up. If that’s not bad enough, more than 95% of Californians live in areas that fail to meet federal or state air quality standards - a rapidly increasing health hazard to you, your children, their children, and so on.
California and the world are already seeing the impacts of climate change – rising sea levels, shrinking snowpack, extreme drought and increased wildfires, threatened cultures and other dangers. We need to begin now to avoid more substantial, more disruptive and more expensive change in the future.
You can make a difference now by driving vehicles that pollute less. Whether you want to reduce your carbon footprint, save money or just contribute less to that nasty smog, DriveClean.ca.gov is your buying guide to the cleanest, most efficient cars on the market. There are so many clean options to choose from, and it's easy to find them with the new Environmental Performance (EP) Label.
Explore the web site and learn about the great benefits and incentives clean vehicles offer, look up incentives in your specific region, or search and compare vehicles by make / model, vehicle category, technologies & fuel types, Smog Score, Global Warming Score or engine family number. You can calculate your savings too by inputting information on your driving habits and regional fuel costs, find out how much the vehicle you are driving now pollutes, and even compare it to something new you might be considering.
Think clean and buy vehicles with higher scores.
