The New York International Auto Show is back for 2022. And the 2022 World Car Awards could finally happen in person again. Last year’s winner was an electric car: the Volkswagen ID.4. This year, the panel leaned even harder into the battery-electric future; electric vehicles won five of the six awards, including a new World Electric Car of the Year award.
