Kia EV6 – Auto Review Car of the Year will also be European Car of the Year 2022

Of the seven Car of the Year finalists, six were fully electric: the Cupra Born, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, Renault Megane E-Tech Electric and Skoda Enyaq iV. Only the Peugeot 308 managed to squeeze in as an ‘old-fashioned’ fuel car.

Ford and Cupra couldn’t break pots

The Ford and Cupra were unmatched and finished sixth and seventh, with 150 and 144 points respectively. The Peugeot and Skoda did slightly better. They received 191 and 185 points from the country juries, whereby we especially find the good performance of the 308 striking. It’s a nice, good car, but it lacks the innovations of the rest of the candidates.

Kia EV6 en Renault Megane nek aan nek

It was tough in the top three. The Renault Megane took the lead first, but was soon overtaken by the Kia EV6. Brother Hyundai Ioniq 5 also received many points, but ended up in third place with 261 points. The Renault is slightly higher with 265 points. The winner is the Kia with 279 points.

Russia kicked out of the Car of the Year jury

Striking this year: Russia was thrown out of the Car of the Year jury last weekend. The points of the Russian jury are not counted and during the presentation of the results the Russian flag was not shown. This is because of the invasion of the Russian army in Ukraine.
