Best Electric Car of the Year 2023: Hyundai Ioniq 5

Buckle up for the retro ride that’s back from the future…Hyundai Ioniq 5, the triple-threat World Car, Design, and EV of the Year – an electric rockstar in the automotive universe! The pixel-LED lights hark back to 8-bit party starters, but on the inside, you’ll find recycled materials from PET bottles, plant extracts, and even paperette for the door cards – it’s like the Avengers of eco-friendly furnishings. V2L tech turns your car into a power bank for everything from laptops to electric bikes while the 217hp motor is the silent hero, launching this hatchback faster than you can say “I love turbochar...” It’s not your father’s hand-me-down, but if you want to be the coolest cousin at the family reunion, the Ioniq 5 ticks all the right boxes. Including the all important range box, making it good for 630kms and sealing the deal for this honour.
