Ioniq Wins Good Design Award

Innovative Design Goes Beyond Industry Standards

When the wraps come off the new Hyundai Ioniq electric and hybrid vehicles at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale this winter, consumers will first notice an elegant design that goes far beyond the normal standards of the industry. The sleek, aerodynamic styling with an aggressive front end and sculpted sides was honored by the Good Design program, the oldest design awards program in the world. “The Chicago Antenaeum’s Good Design program forwards the ideals of a design process that embodies product excellenc and endurance and strong public identity,” according to museum president Christian Narkiewicz-Lane. “With wins year after year, Hyundai has shown its firm commitment to innovation and superior design embodiment through its diverse vehicle lineup.”

Plug-in Hybrid Coming Next Summer

The Ioniq is the first vehicle to offer three different energy propulsion sources. The electric only and hybrid versions will be showing up at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale soon, with the plug-in hybrid coming next summer. Hyundai says the Ioniq is “an important milestone in Hyundai’s global sustainability strategy as it meets the needs of a large and growing group of drivers who require a highly efficient, low-emissions vehicle for daily use.” The Ioniq’s design is not only eye-catching, it was created to manipulate airflow utilizing both active and passive elements. The active front grille moves to capture the most air and move the car swiftly through the wind. Wheel air curtains, a smooth cover of the undercarriage and rear spoiler all contribute to the efficiency of the vehicle.

Reusable Materials Abound in Construction

The Hyundai Ioniq liberally utilizes sustainable materials in its construction, including sugar cane and volcanic stone. Sugar cane makes up about a quarter of all the material in the door panels, while the stone combines with recycled plastic and powdered wood to account for about 25 percent of the interior plastic.

Efficiency and Design Important, but Safety First

The Ioniq will have all the driver assistance safety features that Hyundai has to offer available for drivers. Along with emergency braking with pedestrian detection, you can also get lane departure warning, blind spot detection and smart cruise control. Technology not only offers a state-of-the-art infotainment and communication system, but designers have included ample spots to store and charge all your electronic devices. Stay in touch with Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale to get the first look and a test drive of the innovative Hyundai Ioniq.
