2017 Green Car Of The Year: Chevy Bolt
With electric cars becoming increasingly more prevalent, it’s safe to assume a plug-in vehicle would win the 2017 Green Car of the Year award. And given that all five finalists have a way to charge up, we’d say its a sure-fire bet. Green Car Journal publisher and editor Ron Cogan has announced this years winner – the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV. Just this week it was named Motor Trends Car of the Year and to the Car And Driver Top 10 list. Cogan also noted that the car itself represents one of those times in the auto industry when everything is about to change. Similar to the invention of the starter motor, things are starting to get different.
The other contenders for the 2017 Green Car of the Year? The Toyota Prius Prime, the Chrysler Pacifica, the Kia Optima (hybrid and plug-in models) and the BMW 330e iPerformance. Last year, the winner was the 2016 Chevy Volt. Question is: did Green Car Journal make the right selection this year?
