World Car of the Year

New Zealand Company Vehicle - - CONTENTS -

The Jaguar F-pace is of­fi­cially the best and most beau­ti­ful car in the world af­ter dou­ble suc­cess at the 2017 World Car Awards, scoop­ing the pres­ti­gious World Car of Year and World Car De­sign of the Year ti­tles. F-pace is only the sec­ond ve­hi­cle to claim the historic dou­ble in the 13-year his­tory of the World Car Awards. To win the pair of tro­phies, the F-PACE saw off the com­pe­ti­tion in a vote of 75 in­flu­en­tial mo­tor­ing jour­nal­ists from 24 coun­tries. Mike Ruther­ford, Juror, Di­rec­tor and Vice-chair­man of the World Car Awards/world Car of the Year said: “Jaguar has done the un­think­able by first se­cur­ing the World Car De­sign of the Year award, then lift­ing the big one – the over­all World Car of the Year tro­phy. Mean­while The Prius Prime, a plug-in ver­sion of the Toy­ota Prius petrol-elec­tric hy­brid, has been named the win­ner of this year’s Green Car of The Year award. This year’s award for the plug-in Prius was based on more than its ex­cel­lent fuel econ­omy and low tailpipe emis­sions. A key con­sid­er­a­tion was the use of a ma­jor ad­vanced power plant tech­nol­ogy (be­yond en­gine com­po­nen­try) aimed specif­i­cally at in­creas­ing the ve­hi­cle’s en­vi­ron­men­tal re­spon­si­bil­ity.
