Top 10 High-Tech Green Cars
2013 Lexus ES 300h ($38,850)
Lexus’ 2013 ES 300h is the first vehicle in Lexus’ ES line to get the hybrid treatment. Featuring a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder Atkinson cycle engine using Lexus’ Hybrid Drive system, the ES 300h gets an estimated combined 40 mpg. The vehicle’s hybrid powertrain means you’ll hit 60 mph from a standstill in 8.1 seconds — not exactly breathtaking, but we’ll take it. Naturally, Lexus offers its excellent Enform infotainment system, which allows drivers to sync their smartphone, stream music, access apps and more. Available apps include Bing, Facebook Places, iHeartradio, MovieTickets.com, OpenTable, Pandora and Yelp. With SiriusXM satellite radio, users can also access live traffic and weather updates, fuel prices, sports scores and schedules, stock prices and more.
