Two Chinese cars have been selected as finalists for the 2024 European Car of the Year competition. These are BYD Seal and Volvo EX30. They will compete for the winning title along with five other cars. The winner will be announced at the Geneva Motor Show on February 26th.

Let us remind you that seven Chinese cars became candidates for the title of “European Car of the Year 2024” with a share of 25% among 28 contenders. The list of Chinese cars includes BYD Atto 3 (Yuan Plus), BYD Han, BYD Dolphin, BYD Seal, Nio ET7, Smart #1 and Volvo EX30. However, only two Chinese cars made the list of finalists.

The previous post already discussed why Smart #1 and Volvo EX30 are considered Chinese cars. They are built on Chinese architecture (SEA) and use many Chinese components (batteries, electric motors), and the Chinese company Geely Group is responsible for the mass production of these models.
