ProMaster City: a “Green Car of the Year”

by Bill Cawthon on

Green Car Journal named the Ram ProMaster City its 2016 Commercial Green Car of the Year at the San Antonio Auto & Truck Show in San Antonio, Texas.


Green Car Journal editors evaluate all potential candidates for the award, considering environmental factors as well as functionality, versatility, safety, value and style. The ProMaster City was selected from a number of finalists by a jury of automotive experts and Green Car Journal staff members; it was up against the Nissan NV200 and its clone, the Chevy City Express, the Ford Transit Connect, and the  Mercedes-Benz Metris.

This is the second consecutive green vehicle award for Ram. Last year, the  Ram 1500 EcoDiesel was named Green Truck of the Year.
