Our European friends have just bestowed its Car of the Year award to the Nissan Leaf — a vehicle that just happens to be a 100% electric. Bravo!

The Leaf not only got tons of attention for being the first electric car to win this coveted award — but also made news for unearthing some big-time critics in the voting panel. Some judges placed the the Japanese hatchback in dreaded last place, but the Leaf ably cruised ahead of finalists like the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Vauxhall/Opel Meriva to win the COTY award.

In the months leading up to the annual Detroit Auto Show this January, the green car buzz in the United States has been all about the Chevy Volt. But we’d love to see a little bit of competition in this field! Here’s hoping that Lance Armstrong’s endorsement of the Leaf will make the Volt look in its rear view mirror a couple of times … and give American drivers another solid, clean energy vehicle.
