We have exciting news about upcoming features, and coverage, and additions to our short-term press fleet.

Balloting for the 2012 Diesel Car of the Year will start on Friday, November 18th. You can read about the winner of the 2011 Diesel Car of the Year, the BMW 335d, and, starting on the 18th, select from 13 contenders from Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen.

Next up is a nine-month report on our Volkswagen Jetta TDI long-term test auto. Currently in our short-term test fleet is the Volkswagen Passat TDI, which we first reviewed in June . We’ll have a new review of the Passat in December for you.

We’ll soon be adding the 2012 Mercedes-Benz GL350 BlueTec and 2012 Mercedes-Benz R350 BlueTec to our short-term test fleet and will report on those vehicles as well.

In December, we’ll also feature a report on the unique safety features of our long-term Mercedes-Benz E350 BlueTec.

We’ll kick off our diesel coverage in early 2012 with a review of the 2012 Audi A3 TDI.

And finally, we’ll also take a look at a few hybrids in early 2012, including the 2012 Infiniti M Hybrid and the 2012 Lexus HS 250 h.
