Default VW named as Europe's least green car maker

As reported in the UK Independent

Europe's largest car maker, Volkswagen, is accused of exaggerating its green record and resisting attempts to make popular models such as the market-leading Golf more fuel efficient.


In a report seen by The Independent, the environmental group Greenpeace claims that despite having an image as a family friendly, green brand, VW Group has made less progress on fuel efficiency than rivals such as BMW and Toyota and is actively seeking to thwart EU plans to reduce climate-change emissions by 2020.

Toyota and BMW seems to be the best as per the chart this is a good news, although i do not see any details regarding the same either in this news item or elsewhere on the net.
