HONDA has been named the greenest car brand by visitors to clean technology car show EcoVelocity.
The Japanese marque was placed ahead of Vauxhall in second place, with Nissan third, Mia Electric in fourth and Toyota making up the top five.
But Vauxhall was the brand that those among EcoVelocity’s 58,000 visitors intending to buy a car within the next 12 months are most likely to go for. Toyota was second and BMW third.
However, when the survey was split between men and women, the results were slightly different.
EcoVelocity chief Giles Brown said: “There may well be some arguing before a buying decision is made - men placed Honda at the top, followed by Toyota and Vauxhall, while women put Nissan at the top of their list, followed by Vauxhall, with Peugeot and Honda in joint third place.
“The Vauxhall Ampera was certainly one of the stars of the show, it’s a vehicle that delivers a no compromise option for motorists wanting to purchase a greener and cleaner vehicle.”
Research from the show visitors highlighted that the largest single motivation for visiting EcoVelocity was to see and test drive the latest vehicles, ranking above money saving and environmental concerns.
