21 of Europe’s 27 Car of the Year contenders are electric

The 60th edition of the prestigious prize has just reduced the list from 45 to 27 candidates.

A new edition of the Car of the Year in Europe is approaching. This is the most prestigious prize in the Old World, in which a jury made up of specialized journalists from more than twenty countries participates.

The fact is that the 60th iteration of Car of the Year has just shortened its list of contenders for the title, from 45 selected to 27. All are looking to relegate the Kia EV6, the electric car that led to the Korean firm at the top.

Well, now the list includes no less than 21 100% electric models, with a large presence of Chinese brands such as BAIC, BYD, Xpeng, NIO and even the two new proposals from the Vietnamese firm.

It should be noted that the prize organizers merged some models, such as the Bavarian compact SUV -and its electric version-, the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport and the Toyota bZ4X and Subaru Solterra, so if the prize comes down to one, it will do it from the other directly, especially in the case of the two Japanese electric models.

All the models in the list are new, some are already on sale and others are on the way before the end of the year and provided that the commercial launch takes place in five or more European markets.

This list of 27 models still has to go through a final filter, from which only seven finalists will remain and the winner will emerge. The latter will be unveiled at the end of February.

Below is the list of the 27 candidates…

1.- Alfa Romeo Tonal
