The Hyundai Ioniq and the Vision G concept both won 2016 Good Design Awards, which are awarded by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and Metropolitan Arts.
A Good Design award from the Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Program is the most prestigious design award in the world. Each year, creators from all different fields including industrial, graphic, and product design submit their designs, and members of the Athenaeum pick the most innovative, cutting-edge submissions from each area.
This is the second year in a row the Hyundai Ioniq has won a Good Design Award. The Ioniq is the first eco-vehicle in the world to offer Hybrid, Plug-In Hybrid, and Electric versions, which results in a fantastic driving experience in addition to the award-winning design. The Ioniq is feature-complete and offers a slew of safety features on top of its versatile propulsion options.
The Vision G concept debuted in 2015 in Los Angeles as a luxury coupe focused on driver comfort that will kick off Hyundai’s Genesis sub-brand. The Vision G’s sporty styling promises performance, and its value and smart features make it a practical choice as well as an indulgent one.
The Athenaeum Museum President Christian Narkiewicz-Laine said that Hyundai’s multiple wins over two years show “its firm commitment to innovation and superior design embodiment through its diverse vehicle lineup.”
