  4. Special Categories: In addition to the main categories, there are also awards for electric cars, luxury cars, performance cars and others. Each category has specific criteria that must be met.
  5. Performance, Safety, Value and Innovation: Judges rate cars based on performance, safety, value, innovation and significance in the market.
  6. Design: The World Car Design of the Year category assesses car design specifically. Cars nominated in other categories are also automatically included in this category.

The World Car Awards jury consists of 93 automotive journalists from 28 countries who ensure that the assessment is carried out with high objectivity, credibility and integrity.

With these awards, the automotive industry is increasingly enthusiastic to continue to innovate and provide the best for car fans around the world. Congratulations to the winners of the 2024 World Car Awards!
