Trio of Kia models named among finalists in 2023 World Car Awards

Niro, Niro EV, and EV6 GT Are Top Contenders Across Three Categories


Three Kia models have been named among the finalists across three categories in the 2023 World Car Awards. The Kia Niro is among the list of finalists for 2023 World Car of the Year, while its electrified variant, the Niro EV, is a finalist for the 2023 World Electric Vehicle category. And with a hair-raising 567 horsepower on tap, the EV6 GT is a finalist in the 2023 World Performance Car category.  

“We are honored to receive these nominations from the highly regarded panel of World Car Awards jurors,” said Steven Center, COO & EVP, Kia America. “With all three finalists powered by electrification, our commitment and dedication to our “Plan S” strategy is even more apparent as our hybrids, PHEVs and EVs continue to gain acclaim.”  

Now in its 19th year, the World Car Awards is an annual journey that follows 100 international jurors from 32 countries as they test-drive and vote on a field of eligible vehicles.

“The awards were inaugurated in 2003, and officially launched in January 2004, to reflect the reality of the global marketplace, as well as to recognize, reward and inspire excellence, leadership and innovation in a rapidly changing automotive industry,” said Jens Meiners, chair, 2023 World Car Awards. 

The winners will be announced live at an awards ceremony at the 2023 New York International Auto Show on April 5, 2023.
