Chevy Volt, the "Green Car of the Year."

The Volt named “Green Car of The Year,” by Green Car Journal. It beat several other finalists including the all-electric Nissan Leaf, the Ford Fiesta subcompact and the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

The Volt honored for its combination of electric technology and on board gasoline recharger that keeps the vehicle going even after the batteries lose their charge.

It’s been a good week for the Volt, which has also picked up the Motor Trend and Automobile Car of the Year. The first Volt hasn’t even been delivered to a customer yet. GM says that will happen sometime between Thanksgiving and mid-December.

7 AM PST

We’ve finally made it to the LA convention center for the second, and final day of LA Auto Show previews.

Of course, we’ve been up several hours covering the GM IPO. Now, it’s time to “change gears.”

Not many intros today…but they will have the “Green Car of the Year” award a little later this morning.

Also a good day to spend time working on my WWJ news special, which runs Friday night at 7 PM.
