Ford Maverick Ranked Sixth On 2024 Greener Choices List

Since its debut for the 2022 model year, the Ford Maverick Hybrid has remained one of the most desirable vehicles on earth, routinely ranking among the fastest-selling models on the market, as well as one of the most satisfying choices overall, while also closing out 2023 as the best-selling hybrid pickup, too. Unsurprisingly, much of this popularity has a lot to do with the fact that the Ford Maverick Hybrid is incredibly efficient – helping it present owners with low operating costs – and the compact pickup’s fuel-sipping nature has also earned it a spot on the 2024 Greener Choices list from the non-profit organization known as the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE).

Each year, ACEEE releases its GreenerCars report, which is an assessment of the greenhouse gas and criteria pollutant emissions from the production, use, and disposal of every new vehicle on the market, coupled with fuel economy data. This data is calculated from the time a vehicle is produced to the time it reaches its end-of-life moment as well, giving us a total picture of a vehicle’s impact on not only our wallets, but also the environment as a whole.

Interestingly, for all-electric vehicles, this includes the upstream emissions generated by not only the electricity used by an EV, but also the emissions produced when mining and processing minerals for its batteries, as well as the emissions stemming from manufacturing those vehicles and their components. From there, ACEEE assigns each vehicle a “green score,” then ranks the best and worst in categories including the “greenest,” “greener” (which doesn’t include EVs), and “meanest” of the bunch.

In that regard, the Ford Maverick Hybrid ranked sixth out of 14 models on the “greener” list with a score of 55. The electrified Maverick earned this particular ranking thanks to its low annual estimated fuel cost of $1,297, which was better than five other models – the Honda Accord Hybrid, Kia Niro FE, Mitsubishi Mirage, Lexus ES 300h, and Lexus NX 350h – making it an economical choice for pickup shoppers and pretty much anyone else, to boot.
