Australia-bound hybrid impresses
The Australia-bound Hyundai IONIQ has been named as the ‘Best Green Technology’ for businesses in the UK.
The 2017 BusinessCar Fleet Technology Award comes to the Hyundai primarily because of the flexibility of the three powertrains offered in the model – including (in the UK) hybrid, full electric and plug-in hybrid.
We’re yet to have confirmation of which powertrains we will see in the IONIQ in Australia, as always, we will keep you updated as further news comes to hand in our Hyundai IONIQ News section.
Debbie Wood, BusinessCar editor, tells us judges felt the three different options enables business car decision-makers to specify the IONIQ that best meets their specific needs.
“Environmental concerns around transport have never been so topical and fleets are constantly on the lookout for greener solutions to help reduce their overall carbon footprint.
“This years’ Green Techies award proved to be a fiercely competitive category - but the Hyundai Ioniq emerged as the clear favourite.
It was found that ownership of the Hyundai IONIQ Electric would cost UK businesses as little as just $54 per month to operate.
Tony Whitehorn, boss of Hyundai UK, welcomed the recognition.
“The choice of three electrified powertrains in IONIQ represents a world first for fleet decision-makers, so it’s great to see that endorsed by industry experts.”
