4.12.2017Next Green Car Awards 2017 winners revealed
The Next Green Car Awards 2017 winners have been revealed, recognising the UK’s best new green cars.
Covering eight different categories, the winners have been carefully selected from a shortlist of 32 different models across 18 manufacturers. Winning models cover seven vehicle categories and a Next Generation Award, with all contenders launched in 2017, or due for release in 2018.
This year’s awards also include a special prize with an Innovation Award, recognising a vehicle that Next Green Car considers will have a significant impact on green transport in cities, not just in the UK but around the world.
All winning models have been judged against a range of factors, including environmental, performance and cost criteria, with Next Green Car's unique NGC Rating a primary factor in deciding which vehicles made it through to the shortlist.
Commenting on the winners of this year's awards, Dr Ben Lane, Director at Next Green Car, said: "With many countries signalling the end of the internal combustion engine, 2017 will go down in automotive history as the year when the power-train game changed.
"Looking at this year’s awards winners it’s easy to see why, with quality plug-in cars now winning in all vehicle segments from urban citycars to crossover/SUVs. Electric vehicles have now arrived and are giving even the greenest petrol and diesel models a good run for their money."
