Car of the Year 2022: Statement

28/02/2022 - Car of The year

The Car of the Year Jury Committee has decided by majority to suspend Russia from the 2022 election. The Russian votes will not be counted this year. The Russian flag will not appear during the announcement. 

This is a reaction on the Russian attack on the Ukraine. The suspension is not personal, it is not against our members. The Russian Jury members are not excluded from the Jury. But their right to vote is suspended until a change of the situation of the conflict. However we realized that the suspension of the Russian votes does not have any influence on this year's results, neither on the winning car nor on the ranking.

We all hope that the terrible war will come to an end very soon.
