The majority of the contenders for the World Car Awards 2020 are equipped with lightweight components for acoustic and thermal management. The official list of the finalists has been recently announced at the IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt. The leading automobile industry awards will be presented at the New York Motor Show in the spring of 2020.

A total of 46 new vehicle models have passed the initial screening and are now contenders for trophies in the categories ‘World Car of the Year’, ‘World Luxury Car’, ‘World Performance Car’, ‘World Urban Car’, and ‘World Car Design of the Year’, including five new fully-electric models alone. Whether it’s a lightweight underbody, a noise-absorbing carpet system or a heat-reducing engine encapsulation – most of the eligible vehicles benefit from Autoneum’s innovation leadership in thermal and acoustic management. Autoneum’s expertise extends to new forms of mobility such as electric vehicles, according to a media statement by the company.

“Once again, the contenders are testimony to our innovation leadership. The World Car Awards also confirm our forward-looking approach: Nominated e-models feature Autoneum components as well. Welcoming our industry’s transformation early on, we today supply environmentally sustainable, lightweight components for most electric models available worldwide,” Autoneum CEO Martin Hirzel said.

“As a market leader, Autoneum is the ideal partner for us. Our shared commitment to innovation was a decisive factor in forming a partnership back in 2014. Nowadays, this is a crucial aspect for manufacturers and suppliers who wish to remain successful in times of industrial and technological change,” Gerry Malloy, president of the World Car Awards Association said.

The World Car Awards, which have been presented annually since 2004, are the world’s leading and most widely recognised automotive industry awards. A jury comprising of more than 80 inter-national automotive journalists selects winners in five categories. The winners of the 2020 World Car Awards will be announced in April next year at the New York Motor Show. (GK)
