The award will determine the top ten finalists and on that list, the jurors will vote and select the winners for the five major categories including World Car of the Year, World Green Car, World Performance Car, and World Design of the Year.

The jury is comprised of more than 40 automotive journalists from around the world, and they will vote for their favorite cars. Eligible vehicles for the award should be in production and for sale prior to January 1, 2007 year on in at least five countries and in two continents. The winning vehicles will received their awards in an event at the upcoming New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) in April 2007.

Gerry Malloy, Co-chairman of World Car of the Year awards commented: "Announcing the annual World Car of the Year awards at the New York show is a fitting finale to the auto show season that begins each fall with either the Paris or Frankfurt motor shows.

Finally, in April, the season reaches its exciting climax at the New York International Auto Show."
