New York International Auto Show 2019: World Car Awards

The 2019 edition of the New York International Auto Show is open to the public next week. However, this week it is open to the media and the yearly World Car Awards kicked off the event as many from the automobile industry along with the media attended. I attended the show and I witnessed one company take home three awards this morning. Who are they? Well I will give the answers below.

The award categories of the World Car Awards are the following:

Design of the Year

World Green Car

World Performance Car

World Luxury Car

World Urban Car

World Car of the Year

The winners of the awards were announced starting with the Jaguar I Pace winning both the Design of the Year and World Green Car. Everyone that was attendance was stunned as those two awards were given to that car back to back.

“For I-PACE to be awarded 2019 World Car of the Year gives our first all-electric vehicle the ultimate recognition it deserves,” Jaguar Land Rover CEO Dr. Ralf Speth said in a statement. “I would like to thank the team who have created I-PACE for their passion in making it so outstanding.”

The I-Pace has received numerous industry awards since its launch in 2018, having just received the European Car of the Year award in March.

The winner of the World Performance Car goes to the McLauren 720s. The 720 horsepower super-sports car from Woking, England beat its arch-rival from Gaydon, England. Anyone who’s driven this extraordinarily fast and thrilling machine will understand why it’s a deserving performance car victor.

The Audi A7 took home the World Luxury car and I have to say, it is a beauty to look at when you see it in person. And the World Urban Car was given to the Suzuki Jimny. The final award of the morning which is the World Car of the Year was given to Jaguar I-Pace for a shocking third award. Jaguar almost sweep the entire awards. I can see why that car won those awards.

The award ceremony finished after a brief speech from the General Manager as the attendees of the press and automobile industry gave the winners a standing ovation.
