WASHINGTON, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ten nominees have been named for Green Car Journal's inaugural Green Car Technology Award™ presented at The Washington Auto Show®. The winner will be announced on January 31 at the 2013 Washington Auto Show during the show's second Policy Day.
The Green Car Technology Award™ honors an important enabling technology in use today that's helping create a new generation of fuel efficient, alternative fuel, or low emission vehicles.
"The 'green' technologies that make possible achieving ever-higher efficiencies and lower environmental impact are often the unsung heroes of the automotive world," said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of the Green Car Journal and CarsOfChange.com. "Whether employed in alternative fuel or conventionally powered vehicles, these technologies work in their own ways toward bringing us more environmentally positive transportation without sacrificing the functionality and driving enjoyment we expect from our vehicles."
Technologies considered for the award range from advanced powerplants and drivetrain components to on-board systems that work toward increasing efficiencies, reducing petroleum use, or improving environmental impact. Qualifying technologies must be in use by vehicle models today.
Supporting its growing 'green' theme, a wide array of advanced technology and clean fuel vehicles will be displayed on the show floor at the Washington Auto Show.
"The Washington Auto Show® is the perfect forum for The Green Car Technology Award™," says Washington Auto Show Chairman Robert Fogarty. "As the automotive industry's Policy Show, we are committed to showcasing advancements in eco-friendly systems, alternative fuel engines and other clean air technologies to both our customer community and the policy makers who represent our industry on Capitol Hill. We are honored to have the opportunity to host the nominees and winners for this important award's inaugural year."
The 2013 Green Car Technology Award™ nominees include:
Important 'green' technologies still under development or found only in models outside the U.S. will be considered in future award years when used in vehicles driven on American highways.
