Hyundai IONIQ 5 Powertrain Receives Accolade

The powertrain on Hyundai’s all-electric IONIQ 5 was named one of the ‘2022 Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems’. The annual awards recognise compelling powertrain advancements that are all-new, or significantly improved. 

The IONIQ 5 was selected for its performance, charging capability, range and price. Hyundai has earned fifteen ‘Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems’ recognitions since the awards’ annual inception in 1995. “With the introduction of our new E-GMP platform, the IONIQ 5 created new advancements in the automotive powertrain world with ultra-fast charging and Vehicle to Load two-way on-board charging,” said Director of Electrified Propulsion Development at Hyundai America Technical Center Inc., Byungho Lee.

According to WardsAuto Judge Drew Winter: “The IONIQ 5 redefines the modern vehicle, not only from the propulsion standpoint. The car creates a new, roomy interior space by taking advantage of all the things an EV platform doesn’t have.”

The competition recognises outstanding powertrain achievement and powertrain teams for their ability to dial up more power, more torque and better efficiency. This year, 29 entries were competing for the prestigious recognition.
