    Six of the seven candidates are all-electric; winner to be announced on 28 February

    The shortlist of seven nominations for the Car of the Year 2022, the world’s most prestigious new car award, has been announced, after being selected from 38 eligible candidates.

    They are the Cupra Born, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, Peugeot 308, Renault Mégane E-Tech, and Skoda Enyaq. Of these, only the Peugeot is not pure-electric, which makes this the most EV-intensive shortlist in the award’s history.

    It is in direct contrast to last year’s list, which contained only two exclusively electric cars, the Volkswagen ID 3 and Fiat 500 Electric.

    Eligible cars must essentially be new models and available in at least five European countries before the end of 2021.

    A total of 61 judges, representing 23 countries, select the seven-strong shortlist in a simple vote.

    Second-stage voting takes place in the new year, with the winning car announced in Geneva on Monday 28 February.

    Autocar is one of the Car of the Year’s nine sponsoring publications. The 2021 winner was the Toyota Yaris, preceded by the Peugeot 208 in 2020, Jaguar’s I-Pace in 2019 and the Volvo XC40 in 2018.

    In life, it's not who you know that's important, it's how your wife found out.

    I’ve got to admit I love the Hyundai Ioniq 5.

    The very cool thing about the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and EV6 is that you can charge your mobility scooter from the car if needed. Both cars have a three pin outlet to charge anything you fancy, whether that be a scooter, kettle, TV whatever. The number of times Mrs Brydo has just made it back to the car (well once lol) before her scooter ran out of juice.

    Having read road tests on all of these the Kia EV6 should be the clear winner.

    But we all know it doesn’t work like that.
