Nissan LEAF Named AJAC’s Green Car of the Year
The 2019 Vancouver International Auto Show is on now, and one of the sendoffs for the event was the announcement of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC)’s choices for Green Car of the Year and Green Utility of the Year.
You can read here about AJAC’s choice for best eco-friendly SUV, the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE. But which car was deemed 2019’s top choice according to AJAC’s jury of automotive journalists? The top-selling electric car in the world, the Nissan LEAF. The all-electric car beat out a pair of Hondas, the Insight and the Clarity; the finalists had been named in February at the Toronto auto show.
“It's important for many Canadian drivers to be environmentally aware, and AJAC's Green Vehicle of the Year awards help them to make the responsible choice when it's time to buy a new car or utility vehicle. If they can save money on fuel while also driving a vehicle with low emissions – or no emissions at all – then everybody wins."
- Mark Richardson, President of AJAC
