AddBMW i3 wins 2015 Green Car of the Year award

Beats Out CNG, Hybrid And High-Efficiency Gas Finalists

The popular little BMW i3 (popular in the US, at least) was named the 2015 Green Car of the Year at the Los Angeles Auto Show today. The award doesn't just take into account a car's green credentials but also its "availability to the mass market." While the i3 is a bit expensive, starting at $41,350, it is becoming available at BMW dealers across the country, which cannot be said about a lot of other new plug-in vehicles released these past few years.

The unsurprising fact is, print is more expensive than publishing news online. But when Green Car Journal got started in 1992, Ron Cogan couldn't have envisioned publishing a blog about green cars – the Internet as we know it didn't exist back then. After starting at a time when it took good money to get up and running, Cogan and his team have been putting out a printed magazine for 20 years, and they hope to celebrate with a special 20th anniversary issue early next year. And they'll be d

Last year, Volkswagen's new Jetta TDI was named the 2009 Green Car of the Year at the LA Auto Show, which means that the Volkswagen Golf TDI has a bit of baggage if it wants to win the 2010 award. Regardless, the Golf was named one of five finalists today, along with the Audi A3 TDI, the Honda Insight, the Mercury Milan Hybrid and the Toyota Prius. Odd that the Mercury would be chosen above the Ford Fusion Hybrid, but so it goes. That makes it two diesels and three hybrids vying for top spot.
