The finalists for the 2016 Green Car of the Year award were announced today by Green Car Journal. The winner will be crowned on November 19th during a special ceremony at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.

"This is the strongest field of finalists we've seen in our annual Green Car of the Year program," said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of the Green Car Journal and CarsOfChange.com. "Each of the five nominees makes a strong environmental statement in distinctly different ways, with a common strategy of recognizing what's most important to today's drivers. Their use of wide-ranging powertrain technologies underscores that all approaches are essential to achieving important environmental goals." 

The five finalists for the 2016 World Green Car of the Year award are:

  • Audi A3 e-tron
  • Chevrolet Volt
  • Honda Civic
  • Hyundai Sonata
  • Toyota Prius

As you can see, there is no diesel on this list. Hum, why could that be?
