On April 15th, the New York International Auto Show will take place for the first time since 2019 and, suffice it to say, a lot has changed. Not only has the auto market taken an insane hit from material supply bottlenecks, resulting in massive shortages and high prices, but also automakers have been quietly working on many developments in emerging technologies like electric vehicles. And it’s precisely this area that will likely get a lot of airtime when industry stakeholders convene at the Javits Convention Center as car companies display their cutting-edge technology in new models and batteries. But in the lead-up to the event, on April 13th, the World Car Awards will unveil its 2022 slate of winners — and this year’s finalists have one thing in common: the Top 3 in the world finalists for best car are all electrics, and include the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the Hyundai Ioniq 5, and the Kia EV6. What’s interesting is that this is despite the fact that the World Car Awards has an existing category just for EV, indicating that perhaps these new electric models are making waves in their own right.
