    2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 Is Car and Driver's EV Of The Year

    The 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5, 2022 World Car Of the Year, can add another award to its trophy shelf - that of Car and Driver’s EV of the Year Award. The publication recently named the IONIQ 5 the top electric vehicle out of 20 top-rated EVs it evaluated over a three-week testing period.   

    “The IONIQ 5 is an attractive proposition for buyers who desire the performance, range, and charging speeds of far more expensive EVs at an accessible price,” said Tony Quiroga, editor-in-chief, Car and Driver.EV-Of-Year-Car-Driver-Credit-Hyundai

    Car and Driver says just like its 10Best Awards, the EV award winner must exceed the expectations of the Car and Driver editorial and testing teams in four key areas:

    • Value
    • Mission Fulfillment
    • Technology Advancement
    • Fun to Drive

    Hyundai says that Car and Driver employed instrumented testing, subjective evaluation and side-by-side comparison in both practicality and entertainment value.

    “IONIQ 5 successfully launched our new family of IONIQ electric vehicles and exclusive Electric-Global Modular Platform that allows for more interior space and greater performance,” said José Muñoz, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor North America. “IONIQ 5 continues to satisfy customers and we will build on this momentum with the launch of the IONIQ 6 and 7. Accolades like the Car and Driver EV of the Year are particularly rewarding to the teams that designed and engineered IONIQ 5 to deliver standout charging speed, innovative features and driving dynamics.”
