The categories are: World Car Design, World Luxury Car, World Performance Car, World Urban Car and World Car of the Year.

Honda e

World Car of the Year 2021 Winner Honda e

Before we mention how good the Honda e is… just look at it. It’s a thing of beauty.

Anyway, lets not get side-tracked. Honda has hit the ball out of the park with the e, producing something that drives, handles and rides well, looks a million dollars and, crucially, is an appealing car in its own right. The Honda e came out on top to beat the Honda Jazz/Fit and the Toyota Yaris.
