Hyundai Ioniq named 'Best Green Technology' in fleet awards

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 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 innovative use of ecologically sensitive materials in IONIQ’s cabin adds to its green credentials for environmentally-conscious fleets. Recycled plastic is combined with powdered wood and volcanic stone for the interior door covers, providing the same quality appearance as conventional oil-based plastics.

Debbie Wood, BusinessCar’s editor, said; “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’s the first car to be available as a conventional hybrid, a plug-in hybrid and a pure EV in one body type.”

Hyundai has made rapid advances in fleet in recent years, with significant business growth, product innovations, process improvements, and a high level of customer service central to its success. The company’s latest accolade follows other wins, as ‘Green Manufacturer of the Year’ and ‘Best Plug-in Car’ at the Fleet News Awards, the ‘Best SME Aftersales Programme’ award from Business Car Manager, and the i10 being named ‘Best City Car’ in the Fleet World Honours earlier this year.
