LONDON MOTOR SHOW HOSTS JAGUAR I-PACE – THE BEST CAR IN THE WORLD
Posted in News | 20/05/2019
The 2019 World Car of the Year, the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE will present this year’s London Motor Show after winning an unprecedented three World Car Awards titles.
I-PACE is to be displayed at the World Car Awards stand, alongside the World Car of the Year, World Green Car and World Car Design of the Year trophies that it scooped at the New York Auto Show last month. The show is being held at ExCel in London from 16-19 May.
This latest award for the I-PACE comes just weeks after it became the first Jaguar ever to claim the European Car of the Year title. It has recieved more than 60 awards since it was revealed little more than a year ago and is officially the first car to win three awards in one year at the World Car Awards, as well as being the first car to win European and World Car of the Year.
Beating hundreds of new vehicles from all around the globe and voted for by an expert panel of 86 prominent motoring journalists from 24 countries, the 2019 'World Car of the Year' crown is the highest accolade that any car can receive.
I was overwhelmed and privileged to accept the three awards in New York last month and collecting the World Car of the Year award felt like an ‘Oscar moment’. I honestly believe I have the best job in the world designing Jaguar cars and the opportunities presented by designing an electric vehicle are plentiful, something my team has fully exploited. Winning these awards is true recognition of their achievements.
