WASHINGTON, Dec. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Car Journal has announced finalists for the magazine's prestigious 2020 Green Car Awards™ that will be presented at The Washington Auto Show in Washington, D.C.

"Not surprisingly, Green Car Technology of the Year™ nominees – enabling technologies that make a new generation of more environmentally-positive vehicles possible – also focus on increasing efficiencies and capabilities in this same diverse mix of powertrains."

By virtue of their environmental achievement and rising to the top as finalists in the 2020 Green Car Awards™, all award nominees are recognized with Green Car Journal' s 2020 Green Car Product of Excellence™ honor, an acknowledgement of their contribution toward greater environmental performance in the auto industry.

Cogan notes that The Washington Auto Show, with its strategic location in Washington, D.C. and adjacency to the halls of power that have long influenced environmental progress in the auto industry, is an ideal venue for the magazine's annual Green Car Awards™.
