All cars on the road today contribute to climate change because their engines burn fuel and therefore produce carbon dioxide (CO2) every time we drive.

Car buyers are now able to find the most environmentally friendly vehicles for their needs thanks to the Department for Transport's 'Best on CO2' car rankings.  The rankings system - compiled in association with What Car? magazine -  means that people considering buying a new car can search for the type they're looking for by What Car? category, transmission and fuel type and automatically be given a list of the lowest CO2 emitting models according to their requirements.
