AutoTrader.com has found what con­sumers are think­ing about their vehi­cle choic­es – green vehi­cle options are becom­ing more impor­tant for many of them.

For a lot of car shop­pers, green cars are impor­tant for two main rea­sons – mak­ing good choic­es in their day-to-day lives and tak­ing actions aimed at con­serv­ing resources. Auto­Trad­er has done a sur­vey of con­sumers for Earth Day to tap into their opin­ions on envi­ron­men­tal­ly-friend­ly vehi­cles.

For those who took the sur­vey, fuel effi­cien­cy was the top pick as most impor­tant above body style, comfort/seating, con­ve­nience fea­tures, and design.

Shop­pers con­sid­er­ing a fuel effi­cient vehi­cle said sav­ing mon­ey and help­ing the envi­ron­ment were the top two rea­sons why.

AutoTrader.com edi­tors have cre­at­ed a green car shop­ping guide that breaks down how elec­tric, clean diesel and hybrid vehi­cles work, shar­ing the pros and cons of each tech­nol­o­gy to help shop­pers decide which one could be the right fit for their lifestyle. There’s nev­er been a bet­ter time to find a wide vari­ety of options with advanced vehi­cle tech­nolo­gies and bet­ter fuel econ­o­my.

If you have a short­er com­mute, an elec­tric vehi­cle might be an ide­al option, AutoTrader.com said. If you love the dri­ving dynam­ics and pow­er of a tra­di­tion­al engine, a clean diesel would be a smart choice.

There are a lot of great used hybrid vehi­cles out there for folks who want the effi­cien­cy, but maybe don’t have the bud­get for a new car. Shop­pers now have a wide selec­tion of new and used vehi­cle options that fit most lifestyles and bud­gets.
