2022 World Car Of The Year’s Three Finalists Are All Electric Crossovers

Crossovers of all shapes and sizes are in high demand right now and it seems the very best ones are electric. The three finalists for the World Car of the year competition have been announced and they’re all sporty electric high riders – Ford Mustang Mach-E, Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6.

The latter has already been crowned (European) Car of the Year for 2022, so its presence among the top three is not surprising. Hyundai Ioniq 5 is equally talented and geared more towards comfort, but its polarizing design is not as unanimously appreciated as the Kia’s. The Mach-E is a direct rival to the talented Korean duo and together they also suggest which size segment is the most hotly contested.

Looking through the different categories where three finalists have been revealed, the Hyundai pops up again twice, in World Electric Car of The Year, alongside the Audi E-Tron GT and the Mercedes-Benz EQS, as well as in World Car Design Of The Year, where it is again joined by the E-Tron GT and the Kia EV6.

The Audi is among the three finalists for World Performance Car Of The Year with the BMW M3 / M4 and the Toyota GR86 / Subaru BRZ. In the battle for World Luxury Car Of The Year, the BMW iX and the Mercedes-Benz EQS face off against the Genesis GV70.

The winners in all six categories will be announced live at the 2022 New York Auto Show on April 13.
