Honda named as Britain's greenest car brand
Visitors to EcoVelocity, the UK's green motor show, have named Honda as the automotive brand they perceive to be the greenest, ahead of Vauxhall in second place and Nissan in third. Mia Electric came fourth and Toyota in fifth place.
Vauxhall was the brand that EcoVelocity visitors are most likely to buy within the next 12 months, Toyota second and BMW in third place.
However, when the survey was split between men and women, the results were slightly different, as Giles Brown, EcoVelocity managing director, explains: “There may well be some arguing before a buying decision is made - men placed Honda at the top, followed by Toyota and Vauxhall, while women put Nissan at the top of their list, followed by Vauxhall, with Peugeot and Honda in joint third place.”
Giles Brown, EcoVelocity MD commented: “The Vauxhall Ampera was certainly one of the stars of the show, it’s a vehicle that delivers a no compromise option for motorists wanting to purchase a greener and cleaner vehicle.”
The full results from the EcoVelocity survey are published below.
