Honda is the First Japanese Brand to Win German Car of the Year


Honda’s first battery electric vehicle for Europe, the Honda e, has been named ‘German Car of the Year 2021’ in the country’s prestigious annual Car of the Year Awards, becoming the first vehicle from a Japanese brand to do so. The car also won in the ‘New Energy’ category.

This is the latest in a series of prestigious accolades to be given to the Honda e since its launch in Spring 2020, including the top honor in the Red Dot Design Awards.

The German Car of the Year awards are decided by a jury of leading German car journalists. The panel tests and reviews the latest cars, ranking them according to their usability, driving characteristics, market relevance and level of innovation. The winners of five categories—Compact, Premium, Luxury, New Energy and Performance—then go head-to-head to decide an overall winner.

The Honda e was launched earlier this year and is an important model in Honda’s commitment to electrify 66 percent of its global line-up by 2030 (100 percent in Europe by 2022). Setting new benchmarks for contemporary car design and advanced e-mobility, the Honda e has been designed without compromise with a focus on functionality and usability. It features a seamless, sleek and modern appearance, with cutting-edge technology and advanced intelligent connectivity.
