The Hyundai IONIQ 5 has been named overall winner in the 2022 Company Car Today CCT 100 Awards. The breakthrough electric vehicle (EV), which offers a driving range of up to 298 miles and can be recharged from 10 to 80 per cent in as little as 18 minutes, also received Company Car Today’s prestigious Premium EV of the Year award.
The latest accolades follow on from the strikingly styled Hyundai electric model’s recent triumph in the Company Car and Van Car of the Year awards and being named Business Car’s ‘One to Watch’. These awards provide further proof of the exceptional appeal of the Hyundai IONIQ 5 for business drivers.
Company Car Today Editor, Paul Barker, said: “The Hyundai IONIQ 5 has taken the electric vehicle market by storm. It proves the brand’s capability by providing a dramatically styled, high-class and very capable electric vehicle able to take on the premium brands. It’s the start of something exciting for Hyundai in electric vehicles, and we can’t wait to see the strong momentum carried on as the IONIQ brand grows into a range of EVs.”
The IONIQ 5 is based on Hyundai’s Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which delivers faster charging times, increased driving range, enhanced handling and superior interior space. The fact that 2022 is the first year an EV has won the Company Car Today CCT100 Awards is a clear indicator of Hyundai’s ability to rewrite the rule book with its industry-disruptive EV technology.
Held annually, Company Car Today’s CCT100 sees the top 100 cars suitable for business drivers accessed across numerous categories. Company Car Today’s judges found that no other model equalled the unique blend of emission-free mobility, appealing price point, favourable running and company car tax costs, family-friendly practicality and sheer desirability provided by the Hyundai IONIQ 5.
Priced from £37,420 and offered with a 5-year unlimited mileage warranty and an 8-year battery warranty, the appeal of the Hyundai IONIQ 5 extends far beyond the business driver sector. The model has proven equally adept at winning over critics in numerous media outlets aimed at private car buyers. Over the past year, the IONIQ 5 has been named Car of the Year by Auto Express, Best Company Car and Best Family Electric Car by Carbuyer and Motoring Innovation of the Year by News UK.
Tim White, Head of Fleet, Hyundai Motor UK, said: “With the IONIQ 5, Hyundai set out to deliver the future of electric mobility today, for both business and private customers alike. That meant creating a car that excels across every possible environmental and financial measure, which the IONIQ 5 clearly does with its long-range, rapid recharging, compelling price point and ultra-low 1% BIK.
It also meant engineering a car that appeals to customers on an emotional level, offering innovative styling, ultra-advanced digital technology, an engaging driving feel and a revolutionary, highly spacious interior concept. It is an honour to receive the Company Car Today’s CCT100 overall award and the Premium EV of the Year title as further proof of the breakthrough standards set by the Hyundai IONIQ 5.”
