Green Car journal is having a green car of the year contest, and the Ford Focus Electric is one of the five finalists, and the only American car finalist. The Ford Focus Electric is competing against the Mitsubishi i Electric Car, the Honda Civic GX natural gas, the Toyota Prius v hybrid and the Volkswagen Passat TDI clean Diesel.
The winner of the contest will be announced November 17th at the LA Auto Show.
General Motors is the only American automaker to win the award in it's six year history when the Chevrolet Volt won the competition last year.
Ron Cogan, editor of the Green Car Journal said it best: “This year’s Green Car of the Year finalists underscore that there is no single solution to our transportation challenges.”
