Oct. 22, 2010 - PRLog -- Every year for the last six years, Green Car Journal gives the title of Green Car of the Year® to that car that evokes environmental leadership in the automobile field. For the 2011 year, the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is one of five contenders for the win.

“These five 2011 Green Car of the Year® finalists reflect an auto industry in transition,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and editor of GreenCar.com. “It wasn’t long ago when electric drive was a novelty. Now, it’s expected that auto manufacturers will include electric drive in some form among their model offerings.”

The Sonata Hybrid is Hyundai’s first hybrid in the U.S. market and the first hybrid offering the three hybrid fuel-efficient powertrain technologies all in one car. This hybrid will feature gasoline direct-injection (GDI), twin-scroll turbochargers and full-hybrid powertrains.

Hyundai is using its new six-speed automatic transmission with an electric motor that takes the place of the torque converter. In other words, Hyundai is addressing the common complaint that hybrids provide great mileage for city driving, but not highway driving. The Sonata Hybrid features best-in-class highway fuel economy of 39 mpg and an outstanding 37 mpg for city driving.
he other finalists for the Green Car of the Year Award include the 2011 Chevrolet Volt, 2011 Ford Fiesta, 2011 Lincoln MKZ and the 2011 Nissan Leaf. We, here at Edmond Hyundai, are in high hopes for the 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid will win the title, and we will get to see who that is when the winner will be announced at the LA Auto show on November 18 of this year.
