CHICAGO – Hyundai’s award-winning IONIQ 5 has been named the Best Electric Vehicle by Cars.com in its Best of 2023 Awards surpassing all 2023 EVs in the market that were tested by the company’s editorial team of expert car reviewers. The IONIQ 5 stands out for its Hyundai-exclusive Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) that allows for more interior space and optimized performance as well as having a host of advanced technology. Many vehicles were evaluated, and three finalists were selected for the 2023 Best Electric Vehicle Award with the IONIQ 5 coming out on top.
“During a time when many consumers are contemplating their first electric vehicle, Hyundai’s IONIQ 5 checks all the boxes,” said Ricky Lao, director, of product planning, at Hyundai Motor North America. “The IONIQ 5’s ultra-fast 800-volt multi-charging (10 to 80 percent in 18 minutes), and Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) function that is able to power small appliances, devices, and even charges other EVs, are attractive features to buyers.” ii
“Hyundai’s IONIQ 5 stands out as a well-rounded all-electric SUV, which is why it’s Cars.com’s Best Electric Vehicle of 2023,” says Jenni Newman, Cars.com editor-in-chief. “The IONIQ 5 is an excellent choice for first-time EV shoppers interested in making the jump to EV ownership as well as seasoned EV owners. Here’s what makes the IONIQ 5 a winner: It’s easy to drive with many of the familiar controls of a traditional gas-powered vehicle; it has a spacious, airy interior that’s large enough for families; and its taller profile offers good outward visibility. The 800-volt architecture allows drivers to add miles of range faster than most other mainstream EVs when using a 350-kilowatt DC fast charger, which will ease the minds of the range-anxious.”
