2019 World Car Awards: The winners… and a hat-trick surprise

Jaguar I-Pace cleans up at 2019 World Car Awards

The Jaguar I-Pace electric vehicle has been deemed "the best auto on the planet" after being named the 2019 World auto of the Year at the NY motor show overnight - taking out a trifecta of awards for the first time in the event's history.

In the opening ceremony of the 2019 New York Auto Show, the winners were revealed.

The $70,525 luxury vehicle has a range of 234 miles per charge and beat the electric Audi E-Tron and Volvo S60/V60 for the honor.

While the Draft takes place on April 25th, general manager Steve Keim says a decision has yet to be made on who they'll take. This deal would essentially give the Jets back the picks that they traded the Colts a year ago to move up for Darnold.

The finalists were scored by a jury of 86 motoring journalists from around the globe, including South Africa's Hannes Oosthuizen and Charleen Clarke. Well, that honour went the Jaguar I-Pace, which held off fellow finalists the Audi E-tron and Volvo S60/V60 for the win, assuming the mantle from 2018 victor, the Volvo XC60. "We started with an ideal, to move towards our Destination Zero vision; zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion". The McLaren 720S has met these standards, while also impressing the jurors, who awarded it with the trophy.

The victor of the World Performance Car of the Year is the McLaren 720S, edging out finalists the Aston Martin Vantage and Mercedes-AMG GT four-door.

Marking the 10th World Car award for Audi was the A7, which came first in the Luxury Car of the Year.

The World Car Awards is the biggest automotive awards program on the planet.

"Designing Jaguar cars is probably the best job in the world, and I can honestly say that no other project I've worked on has been as rewarding as I-Pace". "We are very proud of this award because it shows Audi's ability to develop leading premium cars in various segments".

Finally, the World Urban Car award went to the Suzuki Jimny, which held off the Hyundai Atos/Santro and Kia Soul.
