The San Antonio Auto & Truck Show is adding an all-new award to its popular Green Car Awards™ program presented annually by Green Car Journal. This year, the inaugural 2018 Performance Green Car of the Year™ will be honored alongside the magazine's high-profile 2018 Green Truck of the Year™ and 2018 Commercial Green Car of the Year™ in San Antonio during this 2017 show, taking place November 9-12, 2017, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.


Performance and environmental compatibility aren't mutually exclusive, as many mainstream models equipped with electric motors and internal combustion engines have shown in recent years, said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and GreenCarJournal.com. Advanced technologies delivering both greater efficiency and performance continue to define the evolving auto field, aided in no small part by efficient electric drive motors and their immediate torque at launch. This isn’t exclusive to electrification – conventionally-powered performance models are also achieving surprising levels of efficiency.


Vehicles considered for the new Performance Green Car of the Year™ award are different in their approach and price by nature. Some are high-end sports cars, while others are much more affordable, meaning environmental performance is available to a wide range of buyers. Their common thread is that all offer a thrilling driving experience while also featuring important efficiency and environmental achievements.


Delivering greater environmental performance in all vehicle classes is crucial to a dynamic and growing auto market, points out San Antonio Auto Dealers Association President Pam Crail. It's a positive trend we're seeing in so many vehicles on the show floor at the San Antonio Auto & Truck Show, including the trucks, commercial vehicles, and now performance cars honored at our Green Car Awards™ program.


Tickets are now on sale for the show at www.saautoshow.com.
