Toyota has made a name for itself in the eco-friendly market ever since it introduced the Prius hybrid model. Because of this, it should come as no surprise that the Japanese carmaker has not one, but two models in the running for the 2017 World Green Car of the Year award.
Both Toyota Prius Prime and Toyota RAV4 were named 2017 World Green Car of the Year nominees, cementing Toyota’s reputation as the go-to brand for fuel-efficient vehicles.
The World Green Car of the Year award is part of a larger 2017 World Car of the Year competition. Since it was introduced in 2004, this series of awards has occurred each year, showcasing the best vehicles in multiple segments. Along with the overall World Car of the Year and the World Green Car of the year, the awards also honor the best luxury/performance vehicle and the best urban car.
This isn’t the first time Toyota has been honored with a nomination in the World Green Car of the Year category. In fact, it was named the winner of the category last year thanks to the Toyota Mirai fuel cell vehicle. This vehicle, which runs on hydrogen, has zero emissions, making it a great vehicle for going green.
