Now in its third year, WhatGreenCar uses its unique ratings to rank the greenest new cars to come to market this year, and will honour the most innovative model with the Green Car of the Year Award. Short-listed cars are rated for environmental impact, value, drive experience and design.

To be selected for the award, new models must be commercially available for purchase or order during 2010. After-market conversions are not eligible and all cars have to be available directly from the manufacturer. City cars, superminis, small family cars, large family cars, MPVs, executive and sports classes form the initial selection.

Judging and test-drives of the 10 short-listed cars takes place on Wednesday 30th June at Imperial College, London, a university specialising in technological innovation; making it an ideal place for the judges to assess the final line-up. The overall winner of the WhatGreenCar Car of the Year Award 2010 will be announced on Thursday 1st July.

The 10-car short-list for the 2010 Award includes:

* Mitsubishi i-MiEV 47kW synchronous/Li-ion – WGC Rating: 10 – CO2: 0 g/km
* Volkswagen Polo 1.2TDi BlueMotion – WGC Rating: 26 – CO2: 89 g/km
* Citroen DS3 1.6 HDi– WGC Rating: 29 – CO2: 99 g/km
* Vauxhall Corsa 1.3 CDTi ecoFLEX – WGC Rating: 29 – CO2: 98 g/km
* Seat Leon 1.6 TDI Ecomotive – WGC Rating: 28 – CO2: 99 g/km
* Toyota Auris hybrid – WGC Rating: TBC – CO2: 89 g/km
* Volvo C30 1.6D DRIVe– WGC Rating 29 – CO2: 99 g/km
* BMW 320d EfficientDynamics– WGC Rating 31 – CO2: 109 g/km
* Kia Venga 1.4 CRDi – WGC Rating: 33 – CO2: 117 g/km
* Honda CR-Z hybrid – WGC Rating: TBC – CO2: 117 g/km

The judging panel will also be road-testing the Toyota’s Plug-in Prius. While not eligible for the 2010 Award (it is only available on lease this year), the model will generate a great deal of interest as a possible vision of future vehicle development.
