In a surprise turn of events, the Jaguar I-Pace has just been elected Car of the Year 2019 in Europe. It was a first win for Jaguar and the first time, there was a tie between number one and number two in the election with 250 points EACH. The Jaguar I-Pace won since it was the number one choice for 18 jury members, which was only the case for 16 jury members with the Alpine A110. As they say: "Two outstanding and sporty models, not suitable for normal budgets, had inflamed the passion of many Jury members." Kia Ceed came in third with 247 points, so it was a close race.
