Without surprise, the Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt and Hyundai Sonata Hybrid made the North American Car of the Year list. Why aren't we surprised? Well, each vehicle presents either a breakthrough in the industry, or in the case of the Sonata Hybrid, a complete redesign. The list of contenders is certainly strong, but we're pulling for one of these green machines to emerge as the champ, but which one will it be? At the very least this is one of the – if not the – most interesting NACTOY contests ever.
Jurors will cut the list down to just three vehicles in each category in December and the finalists will be displayed when the winning car and truck are announced at the Detroit Auto Show in January. Check out the galleries of the 28 NACTOY finalists below and drop a comment below to let us know which green vehicle has the best chance at capturing the title.
