BRITISH BUILT VEHICLE IN THE RUNNING FOR BIGGEST CAR AWARD ON THE PLANET

The official World Car of the Year (WCOTY) nominations list for 2014 is dominated by Japanese, German and American motor manufacturers.

South Korean and French companies have a strong presence too. Only one British-based firm – MINI – is in with a chance of winning the coveted World Car of the Year title next year.

Volkswagen (which has won the award on more occasions than any other manufacturer in recent years) has failed to make it onto the list for 2014. Its sister companies Audi, Seat and Skoda have been formally selected as candidates for the title – now rated as the number one car award on the planet.

The first round of voting for 66 WCOTY jurors from 21 countries will take place on February 4.

The World Car of the Year will be announced at the New York International Auto Show in April 2014.

About World Car of the Year:

World Car of the Year (WCOTY) has taken over as the biggest and best known automotive award on the planet, according to an international team of analysts from PRIME Research.

As part of the World Car Awards programme, WCOTY can now consider itself to be the leading competition, says PRIME whose offices in Europe, The Americas and Asia have been closely monitoring the colossal rise in popularity and credibility of WCA and WCOTY.

“World Car of the Year is now the most relevant and prominent automotive award globally,” PRIME researchers have declared in their latest Awards Report.

“Due to high media coverage all over the world, it manages to be the most visible car award during the 2012/2013 period, outscoring all other car of the year awards.

“And WCOTY generates highest media visibility in two countries – the USA and the UK,” PRIME concluded.
