It probably won't be the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera shown here, but the 2009 Green Car of the Year will be announced in a few weeks at the Los Angeles auto show.

The award, given by our friend Ron Cogan's Green Car Journal, names the vehicle that  most advances the cause of efficiency, while reducing the auto world's environmental footprint. Five finalists will be named between now and the delivery of the award in mid-November.

Past winners have included the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid, Toyota Camry Hybrid and Mercury Mariner Hybrid. The new winner must be in production by January 1, 2009, to be eligible for the award. Jurors for the award range from Sierra Club representatives to Jay Leno and Carroll Shelby.
