Press material

For the second year in a row, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 has been recognised by SME fleet specialist Company Car & Van.

Following on from its overall Car of the Year win last year, IONIQ 5 has once again found success in the annual Company Car & Van awards, this time securing the Large Electric Car of the Year accolade.

IONIQ 5’s award win will place the fully electric model in front of Company Car & Van’s audience of key decision makers across 7,100 SME fleets, with a reach of 28,000 fleet managers, company directors & end users.

Ashley Andrew, Managing Director of Hyundai Motor UK

Whilst the IONIQ 5 doesn't have a large footprint, its spacious interior offers more cabin space than many larger electric cars. It also looks fantastic, both inside & out, comes very well equipped & the on-board tech is some of the best out there. Factor in a real-world range of 250 miles, low BIK & company car drivers should be taking a long hard look.

Andrew Walker Company Car & Van Editor

Award wins are a fantastic recognition for any model but to standout in the fleet sector is a key measure of success for any electric vehicle. IONIQ 5’s combination of low BIK, practical packaging and real-world performance makes it an attractive proposition for any fleet operator.

Tim White Head of Fleet, Hyundai Motor UK

The IONIQ 5’s compelling credentials see a series of enhancements for the 2023 model year. The introduction of a 77kWh battery pack has seen the potential range extend to up to 315 miles(1) and power increase to 325PS – an 11PS rise over the previous 72.6 kWh battery. A new battery heating and conditioning feature is also now standard across the range to enable more consistent charging whilst the E-GMP platform’s standard 800v charging system provides 350kW ultra-fast charger compatibility. Handling and ride comfort have also been upgraded with the addition of smart frequency dampers to improve the response of the front and rear suspension.
