Electric vehicles (EVs) dominated the 2022 edition of the World Car Awards, with the Hyundai IONIQ 5 leading the way with a trio of awards.
The electric crossover was named the World Car of the Year and Electric Vehicle of the Year, and World Car Design of the Year at a ceremony held at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) on Wednesday.
In fact, EVs dominated this year’s World Car Awards, placing first in each category except for World Urban Car, which went to the Toyota Yaris Cross.
