The IONIQ 5 is the first dedicated BEV from Hyundai and it’s already making waves in the industry. In fact, the electric crossover swept the World Car Awards, winning the three categories for which it was nominated.
At the New York Auto Show, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 was named the overall World Car of the Year, the World Electric Vehicle of the Year, and the World Car Design of the Year. The inspiring EV competed with 27 other models that were launched in 2021. However, 102 automotive journalists from 33 countries deemed the IONIQ 5 the top contender in its nominated categories.
“We are truly honored to receive these prestigious awards, which recognize the talent and hard work of all our people and business partners at Hyundai Motor Company. Our vision is to enable Progress for Humanity, and this endorsement of our approach will serve to embolden our commitment to make this vision a reality,” said Jaehoon Chang, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor Company.
The Hyundai IONIQ 5 is built on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) and offers ultra-fast charging of a 10% to 80% charge in only 18 minutes. The interior is incredibly spacious and modern, showcasing the future of Hyundai’s design.
