After two exciting press days at the LA Auto Show, I'm back to blogging, and just in time to let you know that General Motors won the Green Car of the Year award for the 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid. The full-size SUV is the only two-mode hybrid in its class, running like an SUV but with a 30% fuel efficiency increase over the regular Tahoe.
"We're thrilled to receive this recognition from Green Car Journal for our Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid," said Ed Peper, Chevrolet's general manager. "We've felt that the Tahoe Hybrid represents the best of both worlds â€“ the great utility you'd expect from a Tahoe with fuel economy on par with today's mid-size cars. It's satisfying to receive this validation from such an authority on environmentally-friendly vehicles."
It received the award this morning from the Green Car Journal.
