Jury nominated for the World Car Award 2020
The 2020 edition of the World Car Awards begins today with two announcements: list of 2020 jurors as well as confirmed status as the number one awards program across the globe for the seventh consecutive year according to Prime Research’s latest Global Automotive Awards media monitoring report. Not only the World Car Awards are number one again, but the audience reach has grown by 16% to a record 247 million.
Four new jurors will join the 2020 panel. They are: Stefan Grundhoff (Germany), Hani Mustafa (India), Vincent Nguyen (USA) and George Notaras (USA).
There will be several stops along The Road to World Car journey beginning with the Frankfurt motor show on September when the eligible vehicles will be announced.
Then it’s off to Los Angeles for sixth annual “L.A. Test Drives” event in mid-November where jurors will have the chance to test-drive, and vote, on the eligible vehicles that may not be available in their home markets.
The World Car Finals countdown will begin in early February 2020 as the jurors vote for their favourites and their ballots are tabulated by the international accounting firm KPMG. First the Top 10 and Top 5 in each category will be announced; followed by the Top Three in the World finalists at the Geneva International Motor Show on March 2020.
The journey’s grande finale will take place when the winners are officially declared in all six categories at an awards ceremony that will open the New York International Auto Show on April 8, 2020.
Then it is back to the London Motor Tech show in May where the 2020 winners announced at the New York show will be celebrated. And a glimpse of the 2021 contenders will be offered.
