J.D. Power and Associates’ just-released “Alternative Powertrain Study” includes the Automotive Environmental Index. Volkswagen placed three products on the automotive researcher’s list of low emission vehicles—including the Golf, Jetta and New Beetle.

The study includes petrol, diesel and hybrid powered vehicles and combines U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data with customer information to scrutinize 37 automotive brands relative to a range of environmental factors, including fuel economy, emissions and air quality. The vehicles are then ranked to determine an Automotive Environmental Index (AEI).

Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard, chairman of the Volkswagen brand, stated “The “Alternative Powertrain Study” is testament to our intensive and global commitment in the area of economic engines. And this innovative strength continues to have an impact, via our range of TDI vehicles. No other manufacturer has sold more diesel cars in the United States and that upward trend continues.”
