01 December, 2021

The IONIQ 5 Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) capability has been awarded a 2021 Popular Science Best of What’s New Award in the Automotive Category. The distinguished award is selected by a panel of expert judges and editors from Popular Science.

On Hyundai winning Manufacturer of the Year Jack Rix, Editor of Top Gear Magazine, said: “We’ve been here before. Three years ago, we named Hyundai our Manufacturer of the Year. That was based on a trio of impressive products, both naughty (the i30 N hot hatch) and nice (the IONIQ Hybrid and Kona Electric). They all remain on sale, joined by an even more diverse cast. This year, it's the sheer breadth of talent in Hyundai's line up that swayed us: hot hatches (i30 N, i20 N), hot crossovers (KONA N), hydrogen fuel cell cars (NEXO) and an EV that looks and goes better than anything out there (IONIQ 5)... Hyundai is smashing it right across the board. We’ve known for a while that the Koreans are coming. Well, they’re not anymore. They’re here, and they’re doing it better than anyone else.”
