MotorTrend's 2022 Car of the Year and Truck of the Year awards both went to electric vehicles made by startups.
The magazine chose the Lucid Air as the year's best car in November and the Rivian R1T as top truck last month. Its third award, SUV of the Year, went to a gasoline-powered vehicle from an established automaker, the Genesis GV70.
Rivian beat out another electric pickup, the GMC Hummer EV, for the coveted truck award, which Ram won in each of the past three years. It's the first time since 2008 that one of the Detroit 3 didn't win.
