LOS ANGELES, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Interest and support of green vehicles are growing in leaps and bounds. In 2012, more eco-friendly vehicles arrived on the scene than in previous years. According to BusinessGreen.com, there were 11 models of electric and hybrid vehicles on the market last year, compared to only three in 2011. A primary objective of Honda, Toyota, Chevrolet, and other major carmakers was presenting green cars with superior fuel-efficiency to 2012 car-buyers. As a result, the latest green vehicles from these top manufactures have garnered awards. In looking at the multiple green cars earning these honors, there is not an obvious frontrunner in the green class to trump all other contenders. Rather, there are several that received important 2012 titles, as well as glowing feedback from new owners. At this point, the environmentalist wanting a car that represents his ethos has plenty of options in state-of-the-art green vehicles. While drivers eagerly await the latest innovations of popular models like Toyota Prius or the Honda Fusion, MPG Car Rental offers hybrid car rental Los Angeles based customers and Southern California visitors want to experience.
Knowing that hybrid and electric is the way of the future, U.S. and international manufactures continue to invest in the development of green transportation. At the same time, MPG Car Rental provides superior vehicles such as the ever-popular Prius hybrids or TDi clean diesel Volkswagens for the short-term basis or for an extended rental arrangement. MPG Car Rental offers hybrid car rental with the various models of Toyota Prius, including the Prius C, which was designated the Greenest Car of 2012 by the American Council for Energy-Efficient Economy.

If a nuclear family desires a car with ample legroom and storage options, there's the four-door Toyota Camry hybrid, or the Toyota Highlander hybrid SUV, each achieving an estimated 34mpg.
2012 was a big year for Chevy's green machines. According to Green Car Reports, General Motors was the first automaker who sold a million eco-friendly cars in one year that achieve 30mpg or more. Additionally, GM sold three times as many Chevy Volts in 2012 in comparison to 2011 and garnered the title European Car of the Year award.
