Ioniq Electric Named by ACEEE Among List of “Greenest Vehicles of 2017”

The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric was named to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy’s (ACEEE) list of “Greenest Vehicles of 2017.” In the growing, competitive green vehicle segment, the Ioniq Electric’s life-time environmental impact was analyzed by ACEEE, scoring among a select group of standouts.

The “Greenest Vehicles of 2017” list specifies the 12 most environmentally-friendly nameplates available to consumers this model year. The Hyundai Ioniq Electric earned a Green Score of 64. Only the top-scoring configuration of each nameplate is included in this list. 

The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid and Ioniq Blue earned a Green Score of 59 and 62, respectively. Scores are from a life-cycle analysis taking into account emissions from driving, manufacturing, and eventual recycling of the vehicles.

“The Ioniq represents 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,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, corporate and product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “We are proud to have made such a prominent list in the competitive green vehicle segment.”

The Ioniq eco-focused vehicle is the first in the world to offer three distinct electrified powertrains on a single, dedicated vehicle platform. Hyundai’s approach for the Ioniq line delivers an uncompromising design and driving experience coupled with the latest in safety and convenience technologies, making it an appealing choice for a wide range of buyers.
