"We are very honored that the all-new Ford Fusion has been recognized as the Green Car of the Year by the Green Car Journal," said David Mondragon, Ford general marketing manager. "From EcoBoost to hybrid and plug-in hybrid offerings, the new Fusion is delivering best-in-class fuel economy all wrapped in a dynamic package."

Ford's all-new Fusion is a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and a starting MSRP of $21,700.

Green Car of the Year honors are reserved for production vehicles on sale by Jan. 1 of the award year. Nominees should show forward environmental performance in meaningful and quantifiable ways while also presenting an accessible choice to enough consumers to make a real impact on the environment. The 2013 Ford Fusion not only reduces petroleum use, CO2 emissions and overall environmental impact, but is priced to encourage enough sales that can truly influence environmental improvement.

A jury comprised of environmental leaders including Natural Resources Defense Council president Frances Beinecke, Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune, Ocean Futures Society president Jean-Michel Cousteau, and Global Green USA president Matt Petersen, plus Tonight Show host and auto enthusiast Jay Leno and Green Car Journal staff select the 2013 Green Car of the Year through a majority vote.
