Hyundai IONIQ wins best green tech­nol­ogy award

Bray People - - MOTORING -

A PANEL of fleet in­dus­try ex­perts has named the Hyundai IONIQ as the ‘Best Green Tech­nol­ogy’ for busi­nesses. Judges of the 2017 Busi­nessCar Fleet Tech­nol­ogy Awards – the ‘ Techies’ – said the choice of three elec­tri­fied pow­er­trains for fleets was the most sig­nif­i­cant fac­tor in giv­ing it the top prize.

The Hyundai IONIQ is unique in of­fer­ing sep­a­rate hy­brid, full elec­tric and plug-in hy­brid pow­er­trains within one body type. It en­ables busi­ness car de­ci­sion-mak­ers to spec­ify the IONIQ that best meets the needs of their driv­ers, depend­ing on driv­ing style, travel fre­quency, and the dis­tances typ­i­cally cov­ered.

The ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the zero-emis­sion IONIQ Elec­tric are per­fect for fleets fo­cused on their car­bon foot­print or the low­est BIK rates for users. Com­plet­ing the line-up of pow­er­train choices in 2017 is the IONIQ Plug-in Hy­brid, of­fer­ing ul­tra-low CO2 emis­sions of just 26g/ km and a BIK rate of just 9% for 2017/18. Users can ex­pe­ri­ence up to 39 miles of pure elec­tric driv­ing, with a to­tal range of 680 miles.

Hyundai Mo­tor’s Fleet team worked hard to en­sure the IONIQ is as com­pet­i­tive as pos­si­ble for fleets. The IONIQ Elec­tric is bestin-class for ser­vice, main­te­nance and re­pair costs, with the low­est prices at both the 3yr/30,000-mile and 5yr/50,000-mile points.
