Green Car of the Year Award
Los Angeles, CA, USA
For the first time ever, electric vehicles will be among the contenders for the Green Car of the Year Award presented at the LA Auto Show. Last year the prestigious prize, presented by Green Car Journal, went to the Audi A3 TDI.
Los Angeles Auto Show
Los Angeles, CA, USA
Traditionally used as a venue for automakers to announce high-tech and green innovations, this year's LA Auto Show is expected to be more high profile than ever, given its proximity to the US launch of the Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt. Organizers promise more than 20 world premieres, including major debuts and news from Nissan/Infiniti and the return of Fiat to the show after some 27 years' absence.
European Car of the Year 2011
This award recognises the best of the European auto industry and is selected by a panel of respected automotive journalists from 23 European countries. The all-electric Nissan Leaf is up against contenders including the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, Citroën C3/DS3, Opel/Vauxhall Meriva and Volvo S60/V60.
35th Bologna Motor Show
December 4 - 12
The Bologna Motor Show traditionally focuses on the grandest and most powerful machines, although for its 35th edition even this show has gone electric, announcing a new "Electric City" exhibit on electrically powered vehicles and associated products and services. Other staples such as the Motorsport Arena and stunt shows will also be making a return.
Nissan LEAF deliveries begin
December 10 (rumored)
Although no official confirmation has been issued by Nissan, Leaf buyers and dealers have been reporting that December 10 is the earliest delivery date set for their new vehicles, suggesting that the US launch could take place on this date.
