World Car Awards 2022: The list of candidates is now official

The automotive sector has not been immune to the great crisis caused by the Coronavirus. However, you must step forward to regain some of the normalcy that this disease has stolen from us. Hence, with great care, manufacturers are betting on presenting new models and firsts. So the press, and especially the one specialized in the sector, must be up to the task and not let discouragement fall on us again.

So the organization of the World Car Awards returns to the load for the year 2022. This 2021 has been a bit “strange” because the New York Auto Show was not held because of the pandemic. However, it was no excuse for the Volkswagen ID.4 to be crowned the best car in the world. Now you must prepare because the list of models to “take” the scepter is official (not final) and the countdown has already started.

The World Car Awards will announce their verdict on April 13, 2022

The organization of the World Car Awards has published on its official website the deadlines and the first list of the models that enter to compete. Today there are 18 candidates, although more could join until next December 1. Beyond that, it will be impossible, but any of the categories could suffer alterations that in one way or another could present greater competition between brands and models.

The event that will kick off this call will take place in November. It’s called Road to the World Car Awards and it will bring together the main communication media in the sector from around the world. Then, the 100 journalists who make up the jury must test the models in order to cast a vote. If all goes according to plan, on April 13, 2022, the finalists who will win the award will be announced.

The chosen event, if not canceled again, is the New York Auto Show which has been canceled several times in the last two years. It will be then when we know which models are the winners in the following categories: Car of the Year, Best High-Performance Car, Best Low Pollution Car, Best Design Car, Best Luxury Car, and Best Urban Car.

New for 2022 is the introduction of the World Electric Vehicle of the Year award. In any case, if you don’t want to miss anything from this candidacy, we recommend that you take a look at this link ( here ). However, we will tell you all the news that may arrive. The expectation to know which model will replace the Volkswagen ID.4 is maximum. And you, do you have any favorites …?
