  • Per the South Korean automotive brand, WardsAuto named the Hyundai Ioniq 5’s powertrain one of the 2022 Wards 10 Best Engines and Propulsion Systems.

    “The Ioniq 5 redefines the modern vehicle, not only from the propulsion standpoint. The car creates a new, roomy interior space by taking advantage of all the things an electric vehicle (EV) platform doesn’t have, like a transmission tunnel. The Ioniq 5’s propulsion system doesn’t just sell the car; it redefines what a car can be,” commented WardsAuto Judge Drew Winter.

We are thrilled to once again be recognized by Wards for our leadership in eco-friendly technologies,” said Hyundai America Technical Center Inc. Electrical Propulsion Development Director Byungho Lee.
