Jury members independently evaluated entrants according to various criteria such as design, driving pleasure, drivetrain, handling, quality, comfort, practicality, safety, environment, infotainment, significance and price/performance ratio.

“The award proves that electric mobility is on the rise in Germany,” says Alexander Lutz, Managing Director of Polestar Germany, who accepted the category award on Monday evening in the run-up to the final test drives. “The fact that we were able to prevail in this important category, especially against all the established brands, confirms what a fantastic car Polestar 2 is.”

The jury will announce the winner of the German Car of the Year award in November.
