Car manufacturers do all kinds of things to convince us that their cars are good for the environment. They use words like “hybrid”, “flex”, and “eco boost” and it’s hard to know which one is best and which one you are getting. The reality is that each manufacturer has branded their very own term for “we took the environment into account in the making of this car, at least to some degree.”
To understand which is actually the best, we must look at environmental impact. Would it surprise you to know that many of the cars sold by Subaru car dealers were manufactured in a plant that has a zero landfill status? That’s right, environmental impact can be described by more than just miles per gallon. But while we are on that subject, Subaru inventory does well on this front. Many of their vehicles get more than 30 miles per gallon while trucks at Chevy car dealerships usually don’t get more than 20 miles per gallon.
So we’ve established land fill status and miles per gallon. But what about recycle-ability. Have you ever had a cup that says it was made with 7% recycled material and though to yourself “Well that’t no much!” Subaru dealers can attest to the fact that their cars are made with material that is recycle-able. In fact, more than 97% of the material that Subaru’s are made of can be recycled. That’s much better than 7%, right?
Around the world, new Chevy dealers sell a vehicle every 6 seconds. It’s too bad that Chevy doesn’t work as hard a Subaru car dealers to keep things earth friendly and sustainable.
