LOS ANGELES (AP) — Honda's line of Accords has won the 2014 "Green Car of the Year" award from an auto industry magazine.

The announcement came Thursday at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

In recent years, Green Car Journal honored cars whose selling points were emerging technologies including natural gas, electric and clean diesel.

This year, the prize's jurors opted to honor an already-popular model that has a gas-electric hybrid version, but also an internal combustion engine that runs on gas.

None of the other four finalists was from a U.S. auto maker.

Ron Cogan, the magazine's editor and publisher, said that the Accord's appeal is that its price — around $30,000 — means it is popular enough so that its good gas mileage helps make a widespread, positive impact on the environment.
