As we spent time with the all-electric IONIQ 6, we could not drive for more than ten feet without someone pulling up to us at a light and asking about our car. A few auto-savvy drivers even asked us if we were driving a new concept car. In one case, a Tesla owner did a U-turn to see what we were driving – unfortunately, he could catch us to find out.
With its forward-thinking and innovative design, the IONIQ 6 was recently awarded the World Car of the Year, World Electric Vehicle, and World Car Design of the Year by the prestigious World Car Awards. It is safe to say this electric ride is just what the public has been waiting for.
“We are thrilled to receive this prestigious honor two years in a row, which recognizes the tremendous talents and unrelenting efforts of everyone at Hyundai Motor Company to bring EVs like IONIQ 6 to market,” said Jaehoon Chang, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor Company. “This honor reinforces our commitment to being a global leader in vehicle electrification and will serve to embolden our efforts as a smart mobility solutions provider.”
The IONIQ 6 is an electric car that is designed on an “emotional level” said SangYup Lee, executive vice president and head of Hyundai Design Center. It is more of a lifestyle – the way this new electric customer is using a vehicle and that distinct look and functionality is everything.
The IONIQ 6 is designed with unparalleled passenger and cargo space with sustainability in the materials used in both the interior and exterior.
This next evolution in the IONIQ family is just stunning and immediately captures one’s attention with its sporty new design language and extremely aerodynamic shape. With its highly advanced EV power train the IONIQ 6 can charge up to 80% in as little as 18 minutes. That is how you up your EV game.
