UK: Electrifying victory for the Prius Plug-in; BY LOUISE BELL

THE Next Green Car Awards 2012 have been announced this month with Toyota’s Prius Plug-in taking honours in the large family car category.
The victory has been swift as well as sweet because the Prius Plug-in only went on sale in the UK on July 9. Next Green Car uses its unique Green Car Rating (GCR) to rank the greenest new cars to come to market, honouring the most innovative low emission models with the Next Green Car Awards.
The winners were selected from a shortlist of 26 of the UK’s greenest new cars of 2012/13 for their environmental GCR level of innovation, value for money, drive experience and design.
Dr Ben Lane, managing editor of Next Green Car, said: “The 2012 winners reflect two key elements underlying current green car development – downsizing and electrification.
“More than half of the winners also incorporate electric drive-trains, either as pure electric cars, plug-in hybrids or with start-stop.
“Well worth the wait, the Prius Plug-in adds over 15 miles of zero-emission capability to the well proven standard Prius. A car which offers the benefits of an electric vehicle, but without the limitations of battery range.
