Criteria & Forms
In line with other global green car awards, vehicles are nominated by the judges rather than entered by manufacturers. This ensures that every vehicle meeting basic entry criteria is considered, making the Award a better guide for car buyers.
Category winners will be selected through a combination of factual data and judges’ assessments based on test drives, experience and manufacturers’ information. Nominated manufacturers can provide their information using this Spec Sheet:
