Honda again won the annual Green Car of the Year award at the Los Angeles Auto Show on Thursday. This time Honda took the honor for its Accord, which is available in gas, hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions. The Civic Natural Gas model earned the award in 2012.

"I want to say thank you to Green Car Journal, not just for honoring Accord, but for shining a spotlight on the environment and our shared vision for an ultra-low carbon future," said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of Automobile Operations at American Honda.

Accavitti accepted the 2014 Green Car of the Year Award from Ron Cogan, publisher of Green Car Journal.

The Accord was among five vehicles nominated for the annual award, which included the Audi A6 TDI, BMW 328d, Mazda3, and Toyota Corolla. Unlike past years, no electric cars were in the running for the 2013 Green Car of the Year.
