The list with the five finalists for the 2015 Green Car of the Year award has been published, with the winner set to be announced next month.

It's an interesting list as it contains a wide variety of models, starting off with the diesel-powered Audi A3 TDI equipped with a four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbodiesel. Up next is the plug-in hybrid BMW i3 mixing up a two-cylinder gasoline engine with an electric motor. There's also the Chevrolet Impala Bi-Fuel which can run either on compressed natural gas or on gasoline and can provide a maximum range of 500 miles (500 km).

Another candidate for the 2015 GCOY award is the recently introduced Honda Fit powered by a four-cylinder 1.5-liter gasoline engine with 130 bhp (97 kW) & 114 lb-ft (154 Nm). Lastly, the seventh generation Volkswagen Golf is aiming to take the win thanks to its versatility and the possibility of being configured with a four-cylinder 1.8-liter turbo gasoline engine, a TDI Clean Diesel or as an all-electric model.

Green Car Journal will reveal the winner of the 2015 Green Car of the Year on November 20 during the Los Angeles Auto Show.
