At the Washington Auto Show today, the Green Car Journal announced that the Ford Focus Electric won the title, which is given to a vehicle that vehicle "best envisions the future of transportation" but is not yet available in production form.

For the past two years, a plug-in vehilcle has wont the award, the Nissan Leaf won in 2010 while the Chevy Volt won in 2009.
