The Green Car Journal has named the Mercedes-Benz C350e as the 2017 Green Car of the Year.
While the 2017 Green SUV of the Year title was awarded to the BMW X5 xDrive40e and the 2017 Luxury Green Car of the Year is the Honda NSX.
The awards were announced at the Washington Auto Show early this morning.
The good news for environmentally conscious Australian car buyers is that all three models are available here.

Green Car Journal said the model takes SUVs to the next level and all with an efficient plug-in hybrid system (reviewed here).
Honda NSX – Hybrid Sports Car.
Green Car Journal says the NSX offers premium car buyers the luxury of one of the finest driving experiences available, and delivers over 30% better city fuel efficiency than the model’s previous generation.
Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal says all three cars were worthy winners.
“The desire for more efficient and environmentally positive vehicles has grown across the automotive spectrum and the auto industry has clearly stepped up in a big way to deliver the ‘greener’ models consumers want to buy.”
