Hyundai Ioniq 5
The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 is an all-electric SUV car. It won the World Car award of the Year, the World Electric Vehicle of the Year and World Car Design of the Year.
It is a tech-savvy vehicle with a computerised dashboard and many environmentally-friendly components. The car also has an augmented reality head-up display that shows navigation directions on the windshield.
The tiny crossover takes advantage of its all-electric package with a flat floor for optimal passenger and baggage capacity.
It has a charging speed of up to 350 kW and a driving range of 303 miles. Also, it features an electric-only powertrain that comes in a variety of capacities. The standard-range battery produces 168 horsepower when combined with a single rear-mounted electric motor.
The rear-drive setup produces 225 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque with a longer-range battery. According to Hyundai, the Ioniq 5 will reach 60 mph in 7.4 seconds.
With 320 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque, the all-wheel-drive variant is more powerful and faster.
The Mercedes-Benz EQS, a premium all-electric sedan from the German carmaker and one of the most luxurious EVs ever, won the World Luxury Car of the Year award.
Its curvy shape glides through the air with ease for optimal efficiency, and its opulent interior contains amenities and cutting-edge technology.
This is made more prominent by the optional glass-covered Hyperscreen dashboard. The car has a 329-horsepower rear-drive motor (EQS450+) or a 516-horsepower all-wheel-drive system (EQS580 4Matic).
The EQS has beautiful, high-quality materials and has countless luxury amenities. The most prominent feature is the Mercedes-Benz Hyperscreen, a massive wall-to-wall glass window that spans the instrument panel and houses the entertainment system.
While its digital display appears to be cutting-edge, the EQS comes with a more conventional dashboard as standard. The EQS boasts a roomy cabin due to the flat floor and a long 126.4-inch wheelbase. Because of its big hatchback, the cargo room is enormous.
Audi E-Tron GT
The Audi E-Tron GT, another all-electric German car, was named the World Performance Car of the Year. It is the newest all-electric vehicle in Audi’s EV portfolio, and it’s all-new for 2022. The car is a striking electric vehicle with strong engineering linked to the Porsche Taycan.
The car has a unique two-speed gearbox which creates between 522 and 637 horsepower, depending on the model. This power gives the car a stunning take-off.
The Audi sticks out from the Porsche with its more chiselled exterior and busier front end. The car’s interior is stylish and technologically modern, with various attractive materials and high-tech amenities.
Even though the 2022 e-Tron GT is just a re-bodied Taycan, it’s yet another appealing alternative to Tesla’s successful Model S.
The interior has an angular dashboard with various digital screens and expensive detailing. Some of the car’s outstanding features are interior lighting, a head-up display, and heated and cooled front seats with massaging capabilities.
