How to Choose an Eco-Friendly Vehicle for Your Teen Driver


| 2/13/2019 3:37:00 PM


Getting a driver’s license is a right of passage for every teen. And while that prospect is scary for most parents, you can have at least a little bit of oversight on your teen, even when he or she is behind the wheel.

When the time comes to purchase a vehicle for your teen, you want a vehicle that has a slew of safety features and is also gentle on the environment. Fortunately, it’s easy to practice eco-friendly driving, and there are myriad choices when it comes to environmentally friendly vehicles.

Types of Eco-Friendly Vehicles

There are more eco-friendly vehicles on the road than ever before, and you may be overwhelmed by the choices. For instance, are electric vehicles better for the environment than hybrids or cars that run on vegetable oil? How do autonomous vehicles fit into the picture?

Your first step in choosing an eco-friendly car for your teen driver is to set a realistic budget. Then, start comparing your options. Studies show that autonomous vehicles save drivers time and improve roadway safety, but more research is needed to determine if they are more eco-friendly as well.



As for hybrids, they are by and large more eco-friendly than their gas-guzzling counterparts since they run on a combination of petrol and electricity. The majority of hybrids are built with lightweight materials, and lighter vehicles typically require less gas to operate than heavier vehicles like trucks and SUVs.
