Chevy Volt and Nissan LEAF Among Nominees For Cars.com Eco-Friendly Car of the Year Award
Cars.com has announced its nominees for its 2014 Lifestyle Awards.
In the category of Eco-Friendly, three vehicles made it through the Cars.com selection process:
“To select a car for our Lifestyle Awards, a car first must be selected as a Best Bet, though there are exceptions. To become a Best Bet, a car must have ratings of Acceptable or higher in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests; a reliability rating of average or higher; strong ride and handling; and average or better gas mileage in its segment.”
Of those three, two are plug-in vehicles: the Chevy Volt and the Nissan LEAF.
Chevy has not put out a statement on the Volt’s nomination, but Nissan released this LEAF statement on its Facebook page:
“The Nissan LEAF has been nominated for Eco-Friendly Car of the Year by Cars.com”
“Tell us, does the LEAF have your vote?”
