The Women’s World Car of the Year (WWCOTY) jury have announced the winners in each of this year’s six categories. The best part is that electric vehicles (EVs) won three of the awards proving the electric revolution is upon us.
WWCOTY outline that the winning vehicles represent excellence in their segments based on safety, driving, comfort, technology, design, efficiency, impact on the environment and value for money.
Now in its 12th year, the WWCOTY features a team of 56 female motoring journalists from 40 countries spanning five continents. It is the only jury in the automotive industry comprised exclusively of women.
The awards were created by New Zealand motoring journalist, Sandy Myhre, in 2009. She is currently honorary president while Marta García performs as executive president. The objective of the awards is to highlight the role of women in the car world and also to choose the best cars of the year.
In this first round of voting, sixty-five candidates were in the running for the Women’s World Car of the Year awards. All of them were launched between January 1 and December 31, 2021.
Despite the challenges of living and working during a global pandemic, jurors made an extra effort to get behind the wheel of these vehicles to evaluate them.
Ford’s Mustang Mach-E took the top honours in the Large Car category while the BMW iX claimed victory in the Large SUV category, with the stunning looking Audi e-Tron GT winning the Performance Cars. All category results can be seen below.

Jurors will now choose the Best Car of the Year from the six category winners. The results will be announced around March 8 on International Women’s Day. Last year’s overall winner of the WWCOTY was also an electric car when the much loved Honda e took the overall win for the year.
