The 2012 Ford Focus Elec­tric has been named as a final­ist in the pres­ti­gious Green Car of the Year awards although it won’t be offered for sale until Decem­ber. Oth­er final­ists include the 2012 Hon­da Civic Nat­ur­al Gas, 2012 Mit­subishi i, 2012 Toy­ota Prius v, and 2012 Volk­swa­gen Pas­sat TDI.
