Volt, Ampera et iMiev sont les ‘Clean Car of the Year’ 2012!

Ingrid Lieten, Vice-ministre-présidente du Gouvernement flamand et ministre flamande de l'Innovation vient de dévoiler, au Salon de l’automobile, les trois ‘Clean Car of the Year 2012’.


C’est la deuxième fois que ce titre est attribué. Les gagnants sont la Chevrolet Volt (Clean Car), la Opel Ampera (Clean Fleet Car) et la Mitsubishi iMiev (Clean City Car).


Dans la foulée de l'élection de la Voiture familiale de l'année, un concept bien connu du VAB, a été lancée en 2011 une initiative complémentaire.


Le VAB, le Moniteur de l'Automobile/AutoGids, Effective Media et Clean Week 2020 (de Circuit Zolder) ont en effet mis sur pied l'élection de la 'Clean Car of the Year', aussi appelée 'Voiture Verte de l'Année - Groene Wagen van het Jaar'.


Par rapport à l’ édition précédente, une troisième catégorie (générale) a été ajoutée: la 'Clean Car of the Year', évaluée selon un principe 'well to wheel' ou 'cradle to cradle' pour le marché belge..

Les deux autres catégories (citadines et voitures de flotte) sont maintenues.


La liste des nominations dans les trois catégories:



CITADINES

(Clean City Car)Mitsubishi iMiev
Renault Twingo 1.2
Toyota iQ 1.0




VOITURE de FLOTTE




(Clean Fleet Car)
Opel Ampera
Volkswagen Passat Blue Motion
Chevrolet Volt


CATÉGORIE GÉNÉRALE

(Clean Car of the Year)
Chevrolet Volt
Opel Ampera
Volkswagen Polo Blue Motion


Un jury de spécialistes de divers milieux professionnels, présidé par Tony Verhelle, le rédacteur en chef de AutoGids, a examiné plusieurs paramètres, notamment le LCC (Life Cycle Cost), pour comparer les divers véhicules proposées.


Le jury rappelle que tous les candidats nominés contribuent à une mobilité plus propre, mais qu'au vu des résultats de l'ensemble des critères retenus, les Chevrolet Volt, Opel Ampera et Mitsubishi iMiev méritent le titre de "Voiture Verte de l'Année 2012". La Chevrolet Volt, récemment élu Voiture familiale de l’année dans la catégorie ‘Voitures électriques’ est exposée au stand du VAB et Circuit Zolder (Palais 8 au Salon de l’automobile).


Ministre Ingrid Lieten: "Les véhicules électriques peuvent contribuer de manière sans doute décisive aux solutions demandées par les défis sociétaux. Sans émission de CO2, ni de matières particulaires, la mobilité électrique peut grandement améliorer la qualité de l'air urbain. Si l'électricité est produite par des énergies renouvelables, il n'y a pas de CO2 ou d'autres polluants."


Du 2 au 6 mai 2012 au Circuit de Zolder, la Clean Week 2020 aura lieu pour la troisième fois. C’est l’évènement phare en Belgique au niveau de la mobilité durable, pour les professionnels ét pour les consommateurs.
