A lot of the focus in the automotive industry today is on the coming electric revolution and move towards battery-powered vehicles that will no longer use gasoline and pollute the environment. The transition from hybrid to electric cars is moving ahead at a brisk pace. However, there are still plenty of vehicles on the roads today that are gas guzzling monsters, and that are unapologetically polluting the environment and worsening the air we breathe. These are vehicles that have purposes other than helping Mother Earth. Here is a list of 10 cars that are among the worst offenders when it comes to polluting the environment.
10. Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat
As you’ll see, the majority of the vehicles on this list are either sport utility vehicles or muscle cars such as the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. This popular car has a woeful Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fuel economy rating of just 22 miles per gallon highway driving, and it exhales 1.22 pounds of harmful carbon dioxide emissions for every mile driven. This makes the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat an environmental pariah. However, with a 700 horsepower supercharged V8 engine under the hood, and a top speed over 200 miles per hour, owners of this car seem to be willing to overlook the obvious environmental flaws of this muscle car. Plus, it’s a pretty damn stylish vehicle.
