2016 Chevrolet Volt Gets Awarded At LA Auto Show

The Chevrolet Volt was named 2016 Green Car of the Year earlier today at the LA Auto Show.

The new Volt beat out the other finalists, listed below:

  • Toyota Prius
  • Honda Civic
  • Hyundai Sonata
  • Audi A3 e-tron
Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal, issuer of the Green Car of the Year award, stated:

“This is the first time in Green Car of the Year history that a vehicle has won the award in two succeeding model generations. Considering all the brands and models evaluated in the award program, that’s quite a statement. The Chevrolet Volt was a standout when it won 2011 Green Car of the Year and continues in that role today as the 2016 Green Car of the Year.”

From the list of finalists, it's clear to us that the 2016 Volt deserves the win.

Steve Majoros, marketing director for Chevrolet cars and crossovers, commented:

"Unlike the first generation where we had no owner base and had to figure it out, we now have a base of 80,000 loyal buyers."

"...we have a lot more plans for electrification."

The BMW i3 won the Green Car of the Year award in 2014.
