The Renault Scenic E-Tech Electric is ”The Car of the Year” 2024 and the award ceremony took place in Geneva on Monday 26 February 2024.

Renault Scenic E-Tech Electric è "L'auto dell'anno" 2024The 58-member jury, made up of automotive journalists from 22 countries, selected the winner from seven models that had made it to the round of finalists in the first voting last November. With the trophy for “The Car of the Year”, the Renault Scenic E-Tech Electric wins the most prestigious and coveted award in the automotive world, presented since 1964.

It’s a brilliant winner. The Renault Scenic E-Tech Electric embodies the transition to electromobility. It is a very well-designed family vehicle with a moderate weight, and the choice of two battery capacities is smart to meet the needs of a wide range of customers – said the President of the jury of “The Car of the Year” Søren W. Rasmussen after announcing the results.

Winning the prestigious ‘The Car of the Year’ award is a great source of pride for everyone at Renault Group and the Renault brand. This recognition demonstrates that we have made the right choices: record-breaking range, generous and inviting roominess, all with a closely managed environmental footprint! When you add in the driving pleasure and ‘voiture à vivre’ equipment such as the new Solarbay panoramic sunroof or the latest generation OpenR Link system with integrated Google systems, Scenic has all the right features to shore up its position on the European EV market…

As with previous years, the “Car of the Year” 2024 ceremony, which opened the Media Day of the GIMS 2024, was broadcasted live on the Internet. However, the 2024 edition of the GIMS brings something new. Sandro Mesquita, CEO of the Geneva International Motor Show, explains:

It is a joy for us to host the ‘Car of the Year’ ceremony within our walls. Among the new features we are bringing to our exhibition format for this 91st edition of the GIMS, ‘The Car of the Year’ will have a stand where the winning car will be displayed, but also the other six finalists, and this throughout the duration of the Show. This will give the public the opportunity to compare the different models that have been submitted to the assessment of the jury of ‘The Car of The Year’.
