The Road to the 2022 World Car Awards – Celebrating the best of today. Embracing the best of tomorrow.

  • by

The World Car Awards has a dual mission of celebrating the best of today while embracing the best of tomorrow. This is accomplished via two platforms.

The 2022 World Car Awards program is officially launched as of today on World Car TV .

The Road to the World Car Awards is an annual journey that follows more than 100 highly respected international automotive journalists as they test-drive, and vote on, the 2022 eligible vehicles. The journey starts with today’s official launch, then the 7th “L.A. Test Drives” media event in November, followed by the World Car Finals in March when the finalists are declared. The overall grande finale celebration of the winners will take place at the New York International Auto Show when six category winners will be announced on April 13, 2022.

The 2022 list of all eligible vehicles in six award categories is now posted to our web site.

The World Car Awards’ second platform is The Road to Future Mobility. This initiative is focused on the future trends that are changing the global industry right now; thereby embracing the best of tomorrow. Future trends are brought to life by our journalists who share stories about emerging technologies through their media outlets, video channels and on social media. In addition, the Global Trends Report,  co-presented by AITASTIC and the World Car Awards, is produced twice a year and highlights top trends that surface in our research. Stay tuned for the first report on World Car TV coming in mid-September.

A new highlight of the 2022 awards program is the debut of the World Electric Vehicle of the Year award. This new award is intended to recognize, support and celebrate the global transition to electrically-powered vehicles that is now underway and to acknowledge the efforts of automakers around the world in developing these climate-conscious vehicles.

“There has never been a better time to highlight and celebrate the world’s best electric vehicles.  We are thrilled to once again be part of this year’s World Car Awards. With the importance of EVs and growing consumer interest, the need for trusted sources for consumers to turn to is paramount, and like the New York Auto Show, the industry’s top journalists that make up the World Car Awards are a trusted resource for buyers as they research their next new vehicle.” said Auto Show president, Mark Schienberg. 2022 will marks the 17th year of the World Car Awards’ partnership with the New York International Auto Show.
