By Divyank Kushagra Bansal | on February 9, 2022

The road to the 2022 World Car Finals officially begins with the announcement of the Top Ten and Top Five finalists in six award categories!

It's that time of the year! The 2022 World Car Awards have entered their final stage as the jurors have announced the Top Ten and Top Five finalists in the following six award categories - World Car of the Year (WCOTY), World Electric Vehicle, World Urban Car, World Luxury Car, World Performance Car and World Car Design of the Year. A jury of 102 distinguished international automotive journalists (including our editor, Dhruv Behl) from 33 countries selected the finalists by secret ballot based on their evaluation of each eligible vehicle as part of their professional work. The vote results were tabulated by KPMG.

From here, the excitement of the World Car Finals will continue to build on 15th March 2022, when the 'Top Three in the World' are announced, followed by the announcement of the winners in all six categories on 13th April, live at the New York International Auto Show.
