Shortlisted for Green Car of the Year AwardNovember 13, 2019
This year, this honorary award is presented for the 15th time. By tradition, the best green cars will be awarded at the motor show in Los Angeles.
Models have become known that this year will claim the title of best Green Car of the Year. The award with this name is being organized for the 15th time in 2019. At one time, the American edition of Green Car Journal became the founder of this contest, which is only becoming more popular and influential every year. It was she who suggested regularly choosing the most environmentally friendly car of the year. This time, cars competed for sales at the American car market between the last fall and the fall of 2019.
It is known that the Ford Escape crossover, the Hyundai Sonata sedan, the compact KIA Soul, as well as the Japanese models Mazda 3 and Toyota Corolla were included in the short list of the Green Car of the Year 2020 award.
In the case of Mazda, for example, experts praised the environmental friendliness of the new SKYACTIV-G engine, and Corolla became one of the leaders thanks to its economical engine, which consumes only 4.5 liters for each “hundred” mileage. Recall that the last two years, the main award went to Honda. So, in 2019th Honda Insight beat all finalists, and in 2018th Honda Clarity.
