We’ve taken a look at the top-of-the-range Lexus Hy­brid, the brand-new, seven-seater Toy­ota Prius, the all-elec­tric Nis­san Leaf and the funky and frugal Suzuki Swift.

For­mer mag­a­zine ed­i­tor Wendyl Nis­sen gave up her stress­ful cor­po­rate ca­reer 10 years ago to work from home and in the process dis­cov­ered that there was a green god­dess lurk­ing within. She now has three hens, a pro­duc­tive or­ganic gar­den, cleans her house with bak­ing soda and vine­gar, bakes her own bread, and in her spare time ex­per­i­ments with her ex­pand­ing reper­toire of nat­u­ral clean­ing, beauty and pet prod­ucts. Her com­pany Wendyl’s Green God­dess was es­tab­lished three years ago and fea­tures a range of all nat­u­ral clean­ing prod­ucts. Wendyl drives her Prius V cour­tesy of the team at Gil­trap City Toy­ota.
