The popularity of electric vehicles can be seen in the list of semifinalists for the 2023 North American Car, Truck, and Utility Vehicle of the Year. The list was announced yesterday at the Detroit Auto Show.   

Electric vehicles made up 13 of the 26 finalists. This includes two of the three finalists for Truck of the Year. The category comprises family vehicles and commercial vehicles and shows the increase in the presence of EVs in the pickup segment.  

The Utility Vehicle of the Year category included eight EVs among the 13 semifinalists and four more that offer hybrid versions.
