A green car is potentially less damaging to the environment and runs on renewable resources instead of fossil fuels. They are great for the environment, yes, but what about its aesthetics?


Do eco-friendly cars have to be ugly?

The earliest eco-friendly cars were made by small-time designers , individuals and companies . They created a car which was good for the environment but didn’t take care of the aesthetics maybe because they didn’t do market research or were not well equipped to do so. The design that ultimately came into being was boxy and not very appealing to one who’d want a suave designer car. Over time, making an eco-friendly car ‘ugly’ became a trend. People started associating eco-friendly cars with ‘ugly’. But is this statement true about all eco-friendly cars?
