Jaguar I-Pace secures another major award

The Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV has claimed another trophy, being named the 2019 World Car of the Year.

The British EV added the title, announced at the New York motor show, to the 2019 European Car of the Year award it secured earlier this year.

As well as overall victory in World Car of the Year, the I-Pace won the Green Car and Design categories. The awards are voted for by an international panel of motoring journalists.

The Audi A7 Sportback won the Luxury Car prize, while the utilitarian Suzuki Jimny off-roader was named best Urban Car and Britain’s McLaren 720S supercar took the Performance Car title.
