“This prestigious award recognises the IONIQ 6’s exceptional engineering achieved with the E-GMP Platform. Its innovative architecture enables faster charging, extended driving ranges and superior handling dynamics to elevate the electric vehicle experience to a whole new level.”
“Extreme acceleration is available at just about any speed, combined with excellent efficiency,” says Bob Gritzinger, WardsAuto editor in chief.
“Eco mode is comfortable for running errands, but sport mode turns this car into a rocket ship. This is clearly the top of the heap when it comes to battery-electric powertrains and deserves a second year on our list, this time in the IONIQ 6.”
“The pace of technological change is so fast that few powertrains make the Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems list two times in a row, but the IONIQ 6’s power delivery, efficiency and fun-to-drive aspects stood out from the crowd once again,” said Drew Winter, WardsAuto contributing editor.
This marks the 29th year for Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems, a competition created to recognise outstanding powertrain achievement and highlight the teams that create them. This year, 32 entries competed for the prestigious awards. All-new or significantly updated propulsion systems qualify for consideration, along with winners from the 2022 class.
The 2023 Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsions awards ceremony will take place during the second day of the AutoTech: Electrification conference October 17-18, 2023, in Detroit, Michigan.
