TORONTO, Canada March 2, 2021; 2021 marks the 16th year of the World Car Awards partnership with the New York International Auto Show.

The 2022 awards season and the 18th edition of the Road to the World Car Awards journey will begin on August 19, 2021 at the New York show in the newly renovated Jacob Javits Center in NYC.

A new highlight of the 2022 World Car Awards program will be 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 the efforts of automakers around the world in developing these 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 and are excited about adding this new award to the program.

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, a selection of 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.

The Road to the World Car Awards journey and the awards program would not be possible without the support of our official partners that, in addition to the New York show,also include ZF, Cision Insights, Brembo, KPMG and Newspress, the official media partner.
