Hyundai IONIQ 6 Powertrain Recognized by WardsAuto

The sedan was named one of the 2023 Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems on Sept. 14.

Hyundai announced the powertrain in its all-electric IONIQ 6 sedan was named one of the 2023 Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems on Sept. 14. The annual awards from WardsAuto recognize compelling powertrain advancements that are all-new or significantly improved.

The IONIQ 6 was selected for its performance, charging capability, range, and price, according to Hyundai. The Hyundai IONIQ 5 SUV was also named one of the Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems in 2022. Both the IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6 are powered by Hyundai’s exclusive Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) that allows for dual motors, maximum interior space, and optimized performance.

The 2023 Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsions awards ceremony will take place during the second day of the AutoTech: Electrification conference Oct. 17-18, 2023, in Detroit, Michigan.

In total, Hyundai has earned 16 Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems recognitions since the annual awards’ inception in 1995, said the company.

“Earning two consecutive Wards 10 Best Engine & Propulsion System awards is a remarkable achievement,” said Byungho Lee, director, Electrified Propulsion Development at Hyundai America Technical Center Inc. “This prestigious award recognizes the IONIQ 6’s exceptional engineering achieved with the E-GMP Platform. Its innovative architecture enables faster charging, extended driving ranges and superior handling dynamics to elevate the electric vehicle experience to a whole new level.”

“Extreme acceleration is available at just about any speed, combined with excellent efficiency,” says Bob Gritzinger, WardsAuto editor in chief. “Eco mode is comfortable for running errands, but sport mode turns this car into a rocket ship. This is clearly the top of the heap when it comes to battery-electric powertrains and deserves a second year on our list, this time in the IONIQ 6.”

This marks the 29th year for Wards 10 Best Engines & Propulsion Systems, a competition created to recognize outstanding powertrain achievement and highlight the teams that create them, according to WardsAuto. This year, 32 entries competed for the prestigious awards. All-new or significantly updated propulsion systems qualify for consideration, along with winners from the 2022 class.
