6 March, 2019 | The winner of the “Car of the Year” Award 2019 is the Jaguar I-Pace, a first win for the marque.
The award, decided by 60 automotive journalists from 23 European countries, is considered one of the most prestigious awards in the automobile world. “The Car of the Year” was created by Stern, a German weekly news magazine, and has been awarded since 1964.
The decisive vote was taken live this week at the Geneva International Motor Show in presence of international press representatives.
Jaguar I-Pace won the final in a head-to-head race against six other competitors. For the first time ever, two cars had the same number of winning points: the Alpine A110 and the Jaguar I-Pace. The I-Pace finally won the prize thanks to the jury’s decision.
“For our first electric vehicle to also be the first Jaguar to win European Car of the Year gives us a huge sense of pride. I-Pace was designed and engineered in the UK from a clean sheet of paper. It is the most technologically advanced battery electric vehicle. It’s a true game-changer. Winning European Car of the Year is an honour and real recognition of what our world-class team has delivered.” said Ralf Speth, Chief Executive Officer of Jaguar Land Rover.
