Chevy Volt Named 2011 Green Car of the Year
We haven't even rung in the New Year yet, but Chevrolet's plug-in hybrid Volt has already won the Green Car of the Year award for 2011. The Chevy Volt hasn't even hit the streets, but Green Car Journal felt it deserved the award. Daily Finance reports:
The Volt beat out the Nissan (NSANY) Leaf battery electric vehicle, Ford's (F) Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, Hyundai's (HYMLY) Sonata Hybrid and the gas powered Ford Fiesta, Green Car Journal said Thursday at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The Volt and Leaf had been considered the two favorites for the award.
The accolade added to what has already been a good week for General Motors, which emerged from bankruptcy last year and went public again this week. GM, which raised its common-stock price range and expanded its IPO earlier this week, priced shares Wednesday at $33 a share, the high end of GM's range, and opened Thursday trading at $35.
