Hyundai Motor Group has won e-Business of the Year at the Move Electric Awards 2022, with the revolutionary IONIQ 5 also named Best Electric Car.
The Move Electric Awards 2022 celebrates all forms of electric mobility, focusing on the machines, companies and people that are helping to reinvent how people travel. The award winners were selected by panels of judges, featuring experts in their respective category.
In just a handful of years, the Hyundai Motor Group has transformed itself from a car firm trying to catch up with established European rivals into a group that is setting the standard and pushing forward in the development of new technology. It has done that by investing heavily in electrification and the wider mobility infrastructure with an incredible level of commitment. The Hyundai IONIQ 5 is a demonstration of the firm’s progress. By investing heavily in the electric technology, Hyundai has produced a machine that is helping to set the standard for its rivals. The IONIQ 5 looks and feels like a car from the future – but it’s one you can buy and drive on the roads today.

But a transition to zero emissions automotive transport is just the start of Hyundai’s ‘Progress for Humanity’ brand vision to bring mobility to everyone. Hyundai is exploring Personal Air Vehicles, autonomous pod-style vehicles for a number of different uses and robotics, including how robotics can connect the virtual world with reality.
At Hyundai, there is a very deliberate shift in our attitude from ‘car company’ to ‘mobility company’, as we seek to deliver on our overall brand vision to provide freedom of movement to everyone. We are heavily investing in mobility services, we’re building close relationships with leading mobility service providers and – while it remains at our core – we’re expanding our role beyond the automotive sector. We’re extremely grateful to the mobility experts at Move Electric in recognising the great leaps we’ve already made in transforming our business, as well as our EV line-up specifically. IONIQ 5 is the first of many revolutionary Hyundai’s built on a completely bespoke EV platform, marking the beginning of a new era of design, luxury and innovation for our vehicles.
