The group measures the emissions and the fuel efficiency of eight automakers' entire fleets to determine its rankings. Detroit's big three again rank at the bottom. "In a genuine three-way photo finish, Honda wins the title of greenest automaker, marking five-for-five for Honda in our automaker rankings," says Jim Kliesch, senior engineer with the organization who wrote the report.

Honda finished just one point ahead of Toyota and Hyundai, which tied for second place. Chrysler gets the dubious honor of being at the bottom of the list. According to Kliesch "Chrysler is the worst automaker in this year's analysis, a distinction that it's held in four of our five assessments".
