American publication Green Car Journal has named its finalists for the 2019 Green Car Awards, which will be presented in late November at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The cars that have earned a spot on the list of finalists for the Green Car of the Year award include the Honda Insight, Lexus ES 300h, Nissan Altima, Toyota Avalon Hybrid and Volkswagen Jetta.
14th edition of the Green Car Awards
The Green Car Journal has been doling out its award to the best green car every year since 1992, and this year it expanded the concept to create three distinct categories; its aim is to honor, in each category, “the vehicle that raises the bar in environmental performance while remaining within reach of most consumers.”
"Finalists for the 2019 Green Car of the Year illustrate that 'green' comes in many forms, with efficient internal combustion and hybrid vehicles taking center stage…. Gasoline models continue to achieve notable levels of efficiency and lower carbon emissions. At the same time, it's evident how important electrification has become in today's models…”
- Ron Cogan, Editor and Publisher of Green Car Journal and GreenCarJournal.com.
The big winners in each category will be announced on Thursday, November 29 at the AutoMobility LA event being held during the Los Angeles Auto Show.
