We were very pleased to see that the already well-praised IONIQ won the Plug-in Hybrid Car of the Year award at the recent 2019 CCT100 Awards.
This model managed to add this award to its belt thanks to its combination of financial and emission savings, as well as its all-round usability. Company Car Today Editor Paul Barker stated: “The IONIQ proves that ultra-low emission vehicles are also sensible fleet decisions, combining usability with practicality and low running costs. Plug-in hybrids are, when used in the right situations, a very important part of the journey into alternative fuels and the IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid is a great example of how they can fit seamlessly into any fleet operation, and make sense financially as well as environmentally.”
Michael Stewart, Fleet Director and Hyundai Motor UK, then went on to say: “It’s very satisfying to see that, two years after launch, the IONIQ model range still continues to receive recognition from across the industry. This award from Company Car Today is testament to the IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid’s all-round abilities, which make it a popular choice for fleet operators and company car drivers alike. With the enhancements to the IONIQ range later this year, we anticipate that this popularity will only increase further.”
To further increase this model’s appeal, later this year it will be receiving a number of enhancements to both the interior and exterior that will ensure it will exceed all expectations. These include a new 10.25-inch touchscreen to incorporate Hyundai’s Bluelink telematics system and a ‘Green-zone Drive Mode’, which automatically switches the vehicles drive models between internal combustion and electric only when the car is driving through designated areas.
