Hyundai IONIQ 6 Wins Multiple Awards at New York Auto Show

The EV received the World Car of the Year, World Electric Vehicle and World Car Design of the Year awards for 2022.

Hyundai Motor Co.’s IONIQ 6 Electrified Streamliner has won the prestigious World Car of the Year, World Electric Vehicle and World Car Design of the Year awards for 2022.

The World Car Awards revealed the results at a ceremony at the New York International Auto Show.

A jury of 100 automotive journalists from 32 countries chose IONIQ 6 from the top three finalists, all launched in 2022. This is Hyundai’s second straight triple honors at the World Car of the Year awards. Last year, the jury named IONIQ 5 the winner in the same categories.

“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 Co. “This honor reinforces our commitment to be a global leader in vehicle electrification and will serve to embolden our efforts as a smart mobility solutions provider.”

IONIQ 6 is the second model in Hyundai’s dedicated all-electric lineup brand, IONIQ. It takes full advantage of a bespoke Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) architecture to offer 800 volts; ultra-fast charging capabilities for a 10% to 80% charge in 18 minutes; and a spacious interior, according to Hyundai.

The Electrified Streamliner’s WLTP-rated range on a single charge is 614 kilometers, according to the automaker. The standard 2WD model with 18-inch tire achieves WLTP-rated energy consumption of 13.9 kWh/100 km.

IONIQ 6’s features include vehicle-to-load technology, driver-assistance systems and advanced connectivity with over-the-air software updates.

“The spacious and ergonomic interior takes full advantage of the elongated 2,950-millimeter wheelbase to provide an array of empowering features, such as Dual-Color Ambient Lighting, Speed Sync Lighting, EV Performance Tune-up and Electric Active Sound Design (e-ASD), to enhance the electric mobility experience,” Hyundai added in a news release.

This year, the World Car of the Year jury also named SangYup Lee as the 2023 World Car Person of the Year for his vital contribution to the Hyundai IONIQ 6, the All-new KONA and the N Vision 74 rolling lab. Lee is executive vice president and head of the Hyundai Global Design Center.

“We always want to connect with customers on an emotional level, and with the design of the IONIQ 6 we have created [a] truly one-of-a-kind [electric vehicle],” Lee said. “Inside, we set out to create a personal studio that offers the mindful space and calm functionality that we believe elevates EV design.”
