And the 2008 Green Car of the Year goes to…


The Chevrolet Tahoe, an eight-passenger SUV from GM, likely surprised some attendees of the Los Angeles Auto Show last week, where it was awarded 2008 ‘Green Car of the Year’.

Expected to hit the market in early ’08, the Tahoe (of the same model year) will be the first model from GM using a hybrid system created in partnership with BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Chrysler. Its nameplate will read: Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid.

Says Green Car Journal editor and publisher Ron Cogan, presenter of the award, ‘People don’t think green when SUVs are concerned and for generally good reason, since SUVs often get poor fuel economy. Chevrolet’s Tahoe Hybrid changes this dynamic with a fuel efficiency improvement of up to 30 percent compared to similar vehicles equipped with a standard V8.’

And according to 2008 EPA fuel estimates, the Tahoe Hybrid garners 50 percent better fuel economy in city traffic than its traditional brother.

The Chevy Tahoe Hybrid was chosen as winner of the award by a jury of industry leaders including the likes of Jay Leno, Carroll Shelby, and Carl Pope (Sierra Club.)
