The Green Car Journal has announced the five finalists for the 2014 Green Car of the Year award that will be given at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month.
Surprisingly enough, no American automaker made it in the finals, with the five competitors coming from Europe and Japan. The 2014 Green Car of the Year title will be contested by Audi A6 TDI, BMW 328d, Honda Accord, Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla.

"The diversity of this field of finalists illustrates not only that 'green' has gone mainstream, but also that there is no single approach to achieving ever higher levels of fuel efficiency and environmental performance," says Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal.

The 2014 Green Car of the Year finalists were selected for their achievements in environmental performance and availability to the mass market. All finalist vehicles must be on sale by January 1, 2014.

Last year’s title was won by the Ford Fusion, while the 2012 accolade went to Honda’s Civic GX natural gas vehicle.
