The Decade in Culture

December 31st, 2009

Ten green cars to remember from the last 100 years

December 31st, 2009

Filed under: Diesel, Flex-Fuel, Hybrid, Hydrogen, AutoblogGreen Exclusive, Lightweight



Today is the very last day of the year. And guess what? This is the very last post you'll see on AutoblogGreen in 2009. Fret not, green car aficionados, there will be fresh new material to keep us all interested in 2010, but let's take a minute to look back. Not just on the last decade, but on the entire last century.

We can all recite the usual suspects when talk turns to the green automotive scene. Toyota Prius, Honda Insight, Tesla Roadster, Volkswagen Jetta TDI. But cars like these wouldn't exist if it weren't for some of their predecessors as seen on today's list. Whether powered by gasoline, diesel, electrons or some combination of those three, American history is full of cool green cars.

In reality, there are entirely too many historic eco-friendly cars for us to list here, so we decided instead to compile a group of vehicles that we think are interesting for one reason or another. So don't necessarily think of this as a top 10, think of it more as something to think about moving forward. We also tried to come up with a few machines that you wouldn't expect to see, just to keep it interesting. With all of that out of the way, click past the break to see the entire list of 10 green cars to remember.
