Eco-friendly vehicles lead to increased cost savings

Posted on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 at 8:21:02 AM

The price at the pump can really dig into your monthly budget. For a while, it felt like gas prices were only going to increase, but the recent trend has actually been in the other direction.

What this means for drivers across the country is that there are cost savings to be found with eco-friendly, fuel-efficient vehicles. According to TrueCar, these "greener" vehicles are well-suited for saving money, especially with today's lower gas prices.

"While cheaper gasoline helps make trucks and SUVs more appealing, it also creates an opportunity for consumers to purchase vehicles that will be kind to your pocketbook when gasoline prices rise," explained Eric Lyman, vice president of industry insights at TrueCar.

The best fuel-efficient vehicles in 2015 can span a wide range, but there are a number of options that may interest you today. If you're in the market for affordable auto financing and a fuel-efficient vehicle, take a look at the Volkswagen e-Golf, the Nissan Leaf or the Toyota Prius, according to Kelley Blue Book.

Other, more pricey, "green" options suggested by KBB include the Tesla Model S and the BMW i3.
