The New York Auto Show kicked off Wednesday with the announcement of the 2022 World Auto Awards, and across several categories, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 took home the top awards. Hyundai’s space-age electric car beat its cousin, the Kia EV6and the Ford Mustang Mach-E for the World Car of the Year award. (Full disclosure: I am a member of the WCA jury.)

This is the first year that all of the finalists have received the World Car of the Year award for electric vehicles. This is in addition to the global dedicated electric vehicle category, which the Ioniq 5 also won, beating the Audi E-Tron GT and Mercedes-Benz EQS.

The Ioniq 5 also won a World Car Design Award, which makes sense, considering it looks great. In fact, across all of the World Car Awards, it was an almost entirely electric sweep, with the exception of the World Urban Car. Here’s a look at the other winners.

The World Car Awards are decided by a panel of 102 judges from 33 countries. Among the new winners of the World Car of the Year award are Volkswagen ID 4 in 2021The Kia Telluride in 2020 and the Jaguar I-Pace in 2019.
