Hyundai's triple triumph at 2022 DrivingElectric Awards

Hyundai’s lead in automotive sustainability and its ability to consistently deliver alluring, high-technology hybrid and electric vehicles with exceptional real word usability has been affirmed yet again, with a trio of accolades at the 2022 DrivingElectric Awards.

The Hyundai IONIQ 5 has been named ‘Best Long-Distance Electric Car’ and presented with a special Technology Award by DrivingElectric. The Hyundai TUCSON was hailed 'Best Family Hybrid Car’ at the same ceremony.

Very few electric cars can equal the exceptional driving range of the IONIQ 5, and none can match its unique blend of qualities, as DrivingElectric Editor Richard Ingram explains:

“Several models now manage more than 298 miles on a charge, but few match this with 800-volt ultra-rapid charging. The Hyundai IONIQ 5 goes further still by offering a truly spacious cabin and a comfortable ride; the DrivingElectric judges were unanimous in naming it our favourite long-distance electric car.”

The judging panel bestowed a second accolade upon the Hyundai IONIQ 5 – the coveted Driving Electric Technology Award. Ingram reveals the reasoning behind the decision:

“The Hyundai IONIQ 5 deserves a special mention in the 2022 DrivingElectric Awards. Not only is it our Best Long-Distance Electric Car, but it also earned our coveted Technology Award. With its intuitive infotainment system, long-range, 800-volt electrics and vehicle-to-load (V2L) charging, this is an EV not just for today, but for 2022 and beyond. The IONIQ 5 is as close to future-proofed as anything currently on the market.”

Competition in the long established hybrid marketplace is fierce. Here, the Hyundai TUCSON SUV faced a vast array of rivals from almost every major manufacturer. Yet, once again, Hyundai’s unsurpassed ability to blend carbon-footprint-reducing technology with peerless driver and family appeal raised the Hyundai TUCSON SUV to the top of the field, as Ingram confirms:

“Hybrids are proven to lessen environmental impact and lower running costs, but none makes such light work of family duties as the Hyundai TUCSON SUV. It’s spacious, economical and good to drive, plus it comes loaded with technology – a worthy winner of DrivingElectric’s Best Hybrid Family Car for 2022.”

The trio of accolades won by Hyundai at the 2022 DrivingElectric Awards continues a remarkable year for the brand, which has seen its products receive critical acclaim from all quarters. Highlights have included: Auto Express’ Car of the Year for the IONIQ 5, Carbuyer’s Car of the Year for the New TUCSON and Top Gear’s Car of the Year for the i20N along with Top Gear's Manufacturer of the Year for Hyundai.

Commenting on the 2022 DrivingElectric Awards, Ashley Andrew, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK, said:

“What makes the 2022 DrivingElectric Awards so pleasing is that they are bestowed by a judging panel that knows electric and hybrid mobility inside out and tests every product the industry has to offer. At Hyundai, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of sustainability, delivering future-focused products that excel for our customers today. It is always immensely gratifying to have that critically confirmed by the experts.”

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
