AA Car Awards

The inaugural AA Ireland Car Awards will take place this October. AA Ireland Car Awards are bringing together Ireland’s foremost motoring journalists from a range of nationally recognised media outlets across print, web and video, to help consumers choose the best new cars.

AA Ireland has invited the best motoring journalists in Ireland, from the top-selling and most respected media outlets, to vote for what will be, in their view, Ireland’s best cars across a variety of categories, including three electric vehicle categories, which Ohme Car Chargers will sponsor. One overall winner will be awarded the AA Ireland Car Awards Overall Winner.
