Star celebs fav green car Chevrolet Volt named 2011 World Green Car at NY Auto Show —

[Apr. 21]

Late night talk show hosts Jay Leno and David Letterman ought to be happy. The 2011 Chevrolet Volt was named 2011 World Green Car of the Year at the New York Auto International Auto Show this week, and both star celebs have been endorsing going green automobiles. The celebrities have actually come forward to give their celebrity endorsement to green transportation on both of their respective television shows, helping promote the idea that clean and green transportation is the way to go.

Further, both star celebs have shown support for American auto products including the Ford Fusion and the new Chevy Volt. While Ford has remained financially independent, Chevy took bail out money from the U.S. government. There has been some private sector criticism that any awards given to the Chevy Volt are at the behest of President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and House Democrats. However, the people at Chevy who participated in the design, production implementation, and marketing of the new green car say that playing politics to win favors in the United States just ain’t so.

“The selection of the Volt as the World Green Car is a further proof point of the fuel-efficient technologies that are now being offered by the Chevrolet brand around the world,” said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “This award, and the others that have preceded it, validate the efforts of the development team to build a truly remarkable vehicle with the potential to transform transportation around the globe.”

The Chevrolet Volt was chosen from an initial entry list of 12 new vehicles from around the world, then a shorter list of 10, then three finalists: the Chevrolet Volt, the BMW 320d Efficient Dynamics Edition and the Nissan Leaf. The award is decided by a panel of global automotive journalists.
