  • Best Cars of the Year 2021/2022

    1st Kia EV6With the new EV6, Kia is bringing a model with a long-range, emission-free drive, 800-volt fast charging capability and a distinctive design to the crossover SUV market. The EV6 is the first Kia to be based on the company's new platform specially designed for battery-powered electric vehicles (BEV).1st Hyundai IONIQ 5As the first model built on Hyundai’s new dedicated architecture for battery electric vehicles called Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), IONIQ 5 sets the benchmark to redefine electric mobility lifestyles with sustainable and innovative features – from the eco-friendly materials in its interior design, to ultra-fast charging and Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) capabilities.3rd Audi e-tron GTThe four-door coupé, which will be introduced on the market as an RS model at the same time, reinterprets the classic idea of the gran turismo: Its design is highly emotive, its technology is revolutionary. Two powerful electric motors provide confident electric all-wheel drive and stunning road performance.4th Toyota GR YarisThe new Toyota GR Yaris is a pure performance car, born from Toyota's title-winning experience in the World Rally Championship. Forged from success in the heat of competition, it brings motorsport technology and design directly to the world of the road car, true to TOYOTA GAZOO Racing's ethos for making ever-better cars that are intrinsically rewarding and fun to drive.5th Ford Mustang Mach-EDesigned from the ground-up to change perceptions of what an electric car could and should be, the all-new Mustang Mach-E is the perfect vehicle to take a starring role. The Mustang Mach-E wears the famous Mustang badge with pride and is the first-ever electrified vehicle to carry the name as well as the attitude.6th Fiat 500The New 500 is a true milestone in the FIAT electrification process: the most iconic and popular FIAT model has become totally new, full-electric and electric alone. Around the world, the 500 is the epitome of the Italian car: beautiful, a classic design, a work of art, an inspiration. 7th Porsche TaycanThe Porsche Taycan is the first production vehicle with 800-volt technology. Its drive system components use this voltage. At the same power output, half the cross-section of conventional 400-volt technology is sufficient for cables. In the Taycan, this saves around four kilograms in weight, reduces transmission losses and requires less installation space.8th Citroen AMICitroën is launching its electrification offensive with Ami - 100% ëlectric, and innovates by offering an individual mobility solution that allows people to move around in a protected manner in a closed, 100% electric object, accessible to all. Its particularly competitive “à la carte” offers are adapted to everyone's uses.9th Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVThe Outlander PHEV has a 2.4L 16-valve inline 4 cylinder engine. It has a supremely efficient Atkinson-cycle with a long expansion stroke. This makes it much more efficient, so it offers better fuel economy and less emissions. This is a type of internal combustion engine invented by James Atkinson in 1882.10th VW PoloWith more than 18 million units built, the Polo is one of the world’s most successful compact cars. The Polo may be small in size, but it is one of the greats of the Volkswagen brand: for years, it has been regularly claiming a place among the top three best-selling model series.
