About the A' Car Design Awards
Unlike other car design awards which test submitted cars based on driving and testing in order to provide consumers with comparative information on vehicles that are new to the market, A' Design Award focuses more on the innovations, originality and ingenuity embedded in the cars. The nominated cars are not tested since the competition is also open to concept stage designs as well. The purpose of the A' Car Design Awards is to feature highly original, innovative and promising car designs that are not only visually appealing but also comfortable and sustainable. Car designs that improve the quality of life of consumers will be highlighted.
