IONIQ 5 Sweeps World Car Awards | Toronto, ON

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.

Tucson, IONIQ 5 Join Spider-Man on the Big Screen

2021 Hyundai IONIQ | Toronto, ON

Did you know that a recent superhero film included cameos from two Hyundai vehicles? The all-new IONIQ 5 and all-new Tucson both made brief appearances in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” as part of an exciting partnership between Sony Pictures and Hyundai.

Leading up to the film’s release last December, a pair of commercials aired online and on televisions globally. The long-form “Only Way Home” commercial stars Tom Holland as a stranded Peter Parker after the events of the previous film. As he’s suited up as Spider-Man and walking along a deserted highway, his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon) pulls up in the all-electric IONIQ 5 to take Peter back to New York City to face his fate.

The second commercial includes actual clips from “No Way Home,” with Peter standing atop the new Tucson as he prepares to face a villain. Additional footage of the Tucson zooming through city streets accompanies the film scenes, with a disclaimer unfortunately stating that web shooters are not included with the sporty SUV.

This isn’t the first time Hyundai vehicles have partnered with superheroes — and it won’t be the last. A custom Hyundai Veloster appeared in “Ant-Man and the Wasp” as Ant-Man’s getaway vehicle. Hyundai also has campaigns for the new “Uncharted” film as well as the upcoming “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One),” set to debut in October.

Our team at Downtown Hyundai in Toronto, Ontario, is always excited to see Hyundai vehicles getting in the spotlight of major motion pictures. Come visit us to drive your own movie star of a vehicle home today.
