The analytical edition of Green Car Journal announced the finalists of the annual Green Car of the Year awards («Green Car of the Year») and Green Suv of the Year («Green Crossover of the Year»). Tesla did not get into these lists.
Fordescape, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Soul, Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla. All models have received a chance to win due to the presence in the motor range of highly efficient internal combustion engines or hybrid installations. And the new «Sonata» interested the jury with a roof panel that feeds the traction battery of the hybrid installation.
The nominees for the Award «Green Crossover Year» were Ford Explorer Hybrid, Hondacr-V, Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, Toyota Highlander Hybrid and Toyota RAV4. Motivation of the choice of these machines is still the same — efficient internal combustion engine and hybrid versions.
Winners will be called on November 21 at a press conference in Los Angeles. Last year, the title of «Green Car of the Year» was awarded Honda Insight, and among Suvov defeated the hybrid Mitsubishi Outlander.
