Auto Trader reveals the highest emission movie cars and their greener alternatives
A Lamborghini Centaro in Transformers: The Last Knight comes out as the highest emissions vehicle at a gas-guzzling 281g per km.
Tom Cruise will be seen whizzing around in a BMW M5 Saloon in the forthcoming Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Were he to swap this with a BMW 7 Series 740e he could cut his emissions by a huge 79%.
Jeeps are notorious for their high fuel consumption. The Cherokee in 2017’s Logan pumps out 223g of emissions. Switching to a Mitsubishi Outlander would reduce emissions by up to five times.
Cars have traditionally played a key role in some of the Silver Screen’s most suspenseful moments, from the Mini Cooper chase scene in The Italian Job, to the action-packed races of Mad Max: Fury Road.

With blockbuster season upon us, the UK’s largest digital automotive marketplace, Auto Trader, have compiled a ranking of cars that have featured in some of the biggest cinematic releases of the past three years and the green equivalent models the characters could drive instead.
