The jury at World Car of the Year has announced the finalists. The winner will be announced at the New York Auto Show, held on 22 April.

The organizers of the World Car of the Year contest announced the finalists of the 2011 edition. They are the Audi A8, BMW Series 5 and Nissan Leaf.

The three models are competing at general categories, while the rest fight for “Green Car of the Year” and “Design of the Year.”

Regarding the “Green Car of the Year”, Nissan Leaf will have to face for the first time since its market debut, the Chevrolet Volt. While the American model is an electric vehicle in the true sense of the word, the two models have been bearing an ideological battle over a year.

The original list of models competing for the title included 39 nominees, chosen by 66 automotive journalists from 24 countries. To be eligible for the 2011 edition World Car of The Year, a model must be available on at least two continents and five countries from January 1, 2010 to May 30, 2011. For this reason, many popular models in the U.S. or Europe are not eligible for this award.

The top three finalists announced in all categories are listed below in alphabetical order:
