Electric car of the year 2021 powered by ČSOB leasing: We know the best electric and plug-in hybrid cars

The third year of the survey on the best electric and plug-in hybrid cars on the Slovak market in 2021, Elektromobil roku 2021, powered by ČSOB leasing, is at an end. There is nothing left but to officially announce the results, to publish the list of winners from the voting series and to congratulate everyone.

A total of 2,906 voters took part in the Electric Car of the Year 2021 poll by ČSOB leasing, who selected the best electric cars on the Slovak market.

Voting took place in the four traditional categories Electric Car, Electric SUV, Plug-in Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid SUV. And as the world of electric vehicles is riddled with modern technology, a special category, the carmaker’s application, has been added.

Different models were nominated in each category so that neither would ever figure in two different categories. The nominations for the individual categories were proposed directly by the brands with regard to the fact that these were currently sold models in Slovakia. A total of 59 nominated vehicles applied for the support of the Slovak public. Let’s now look at how it turned out in each category.

Special category Car application

In the special Automotive Applications category, voters selected the best mobile applications from the automotive workshop, which makes everyday life easier for owners of electric cars. Although many of them share almost identical functions, there are also unique things in them.

The Mercedes me application for Mercedes-Benz cars came in first. The MyŠKODA application was placed behind it in an extremely tight sling, and the winning trio is closed by My BMW.
