In light of yesterday’s feebate/Clean Air Standard proposals, we thought we’d curate a list of the five least polluting vehicles available new on our market, and five which really pump out the CO2. Obviously, pure-electric vehicles are the cleanest so we left those out. We kept in plug-in hybrids, however.

Toyota Prius Prime (23g/km)

Hyundai Ioniq PHEV (25g/km) 

Kia Niro PHEV (30g/km)

Audi A3 Sportback e-tron (34g/km)

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (39g/km)

And five of the dirtiest…

Ford Mustang GT (249g/km)

Chevrolet Camaro 2SS (260g/km)

Jaguar F Pace SVR (272g/km)

Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR (294g/km)

Mercedes-Benz G63 (299g/km)

The information comes from manufacturer claims and what can be found on RightCar.govt.nz.

If you want an ICE-only low-emission vehicle, you’d be looking at the likes of the Seat Ibiza (108g/km) Swift GLX (110g/km), Audi’s new A1 (116g/km) or the Honda Jazz S (117g/km). Basically, little cars with small engines. Remember, small triples and fours good, big V8s bad (but oh so sweet).
