A Snap Guide to Eco-Friendly Dream Cars

Sunday, April 22 is Earth Day. Honor our home planet by going green in one of these surprisingly sleek, eco-friendly rides.

Or at least consider it, before you go out and buy one of these instead.

Most Luxe Detailing: Fisker Karma (pictured above)
The Karma makes the Prius look like a pair of sensible shoes. The sporty Finnish-built hybrid soothes consciences with a solar-powered roof that helps charge the battery, soy-based seating foam, and trims made of reclaimed American wood. 
From $103,000

Longest Range: Honda Fit EV
Only 1,100 models will cross the Pacific in the next three years, so move fast and you’ll move far. The hatchback covers 123 miles (in the city) per charge, up to twice the range of its competitors.
From $36,625

Best Mileage: Mazda CX-5
Mazda is finally adding class-kicking gas mileage to its résumé. The shapely CX-5’s lightweight chassis, direct-injection engine, and six-speed transmission deliver 35 highway mpg—more than any crossover SUV, hybrids included. From $21,490

Fastest Charge: Ford Focus Electric
Americans will grasp the electric advantage in just over three hours: That’s how quickly the Euro-styled Focus recharges its lithium battery, half the time of EVs such as the Nissan Leaf. From $39,995
