dc auto showWell, we knew it was going to be an electric car that would drive away with the Green Car Journal's Green Car Vision Award for 2011, we just didn't know which one.

At the Washington Auto Show today, the Green Car Journal announced that the Ford Focus Electric won the title, which is given to a vehicle that vehicle "best envisions the future of transportation" but is not yet available in production form. The Focus also won our informal poll of AutoblogGreen readers that included the five finalists. The other finalists this year were the Honda Fit EV, the Mitsubishi i electric vehicle, the Toyota RAV4 EV and the Volvo C30 DRIVe. For the past two years, a plug-in vehilcle has wont the award, the Nissan Leaf won in 2010 while the Chevy Volt won in 2009.
