You may want to vote, although, admittedly, your vote won't make any difference at all... ;-)

Latest score is 78.4% for the Model S !!!

gianni.terragni | 15 January 2012

+1 model S.
BMW i3 they wrote a lot but they said nothing

Timo | 15 January 2012

81% now. Sounds like there really is no contest.

If the people really deciding for the title don't select Model S, then we know they are being paid by Big Oil.

Timo,

I know you realize we're prejudiced on this forum, and there are a fairly large number of us. Of course, just because we're prejudiced doesn't mean we're wrong.

Tesla Model S 525 @ 83.3%

bfranks273 | 17 January 2012

83.7%, not even fair is it. But If I test drive the BMW do I get tossed out of the club? Looked good in the movie though it was mostly animated/airbrushed.

Tesla Model S @ 84%

Brian H | 18 January 2012

I wonder if someone twigged Elon about it, and he told everyone at Fremont to log in. ;)

Timo | 18 January 2012

I posted to that site reasons why I think Model S is so overwhelmingly clear winner. Main reason being that it is the first really practical BEV ever made. All the others either have too short range or too little space. It starts the new age of cars.

Larry Chanin | 26 January 2012

Well, Timo apparentely you weren't persuasive enough. ;-)


Ford C-Max Energi wins 2012 Green Car Vision Award

GCJ's decision will likely not sit well with our readers, who overwhelmingly picked the Tesla Model S to win this year. Our unscientific poll had the Model S winning with 83.6 percent of the vote, followed by the BMW i3, (6.5 percent), the Cadillac ELR (5 percent), C-MAX (2.9 percent) with the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell picking just 1.9 percent to take up the bottomw spot out of the five nominees.

What a joke. They picked the car that was almost in last place. It must have all just been a Ford media stunt. No other car was ever going to win.

Teoatawki | 26 January 2012

autoblog.com wasn't picking the winner. They were just asking their readers who should win.

Robert.Boston | 26 January 2012

Feel free to add your scathing comments to the article announcing the winner:

I assume Ford's advertising budget did not influence GreenCars decision.

petero | 27 January 2012

Mycroft and Robert.Boston. Read your comments to Green Car... I totally agree. I added my 2 cents worth. Has anyone seen a Ford Focus EV on the street? I haven't and I live in So. CA.

petero | 27 January 2012

My apologies to Green Car. I looked through several back issues of that rag and I saw full page chevy volt ads,Roush, Clean Energy but not one for Ford.

Mycroft | 27 January 2012

petero, I don't think the Focus EV is available yet. $40k (less $7,500 rebate of course), 110v charging, and a whopping 23kWh battery.

petero | 27 January 2012

Mycroft. But the Focus EV is GC Magazines 2011 winner!

Mycroft | 27 January 2012

That award is for cars that aren't out yet.

petero | 27 January 2012

Today I checked with my local Ford dealer. He said the Focus EV is still a few months away.

Brian H | 28 January 2012

Think of it as a preliminary, primitive Bluestar. ;)
