Over a month ago, I wrote a blog on The Green Car Journal nominating five finalists for the Green Car of the Year for 2013. The finalists were the Dodge Dart Aero, Ford C-Max, Ford Fusion, Mazda CX-5 Skyactiv, and Toyota Prius C. It was possible to vote online at autoblog however the winners were picked by Jay Leno, Green Car Journal, and various environmental leaders. The final online vote was Ford C-Max 32%, Fusion 22%, Mazda CX-5 16%, Prius C 16% and Dart 15%.
The online votes didn’t sway Leno and the judges. The winner was announced today, the Ford Fusion.
