At a press conference hosted by the New York International Auto Show and Bridgestone Corporation, the results of the 2013 World Green Car Awards were announced. The Renault Zoe came second to the Tesla Model S, with the Volvo V60 hybrid in third place.

“Tailpipe emissions, fuel consumption, and use of a major advanced power plant technology (beyond engine componentry), aimed specifically at increasing the vehicle’s environmental responsibility, were all taken into consideration.”

While the Tesla is a worthy winner, it would be interesting to speculate that the Zoe might have won if price or value for money were among the criteria.
