TORRANCE, Calif., (April 21, 2014) – The Toyota Prius, the brand’s first production gas-electric hybrid model, was named one of the “10 Best Green Cars” for 2014 by Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com.
KBB.com editors compiled a list of the most efficient vehicles available and then picked 10 standouts featuring a variety of price ranges and powertrains. The list also takes into account production methods and recyclability, and the editors try to seek vehicles appropriate for varying lifestyles.
