“Finalists for the 2019 Green Car of the Year® illustrate that ‘green’ comes in many forms, with efficient internal combustion and hybrid vehicles taking center stage,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and “Gasoline models continue to achieve notable levels of efficiency and lower carbon emissions.”
