CHICAGO, Feb. 8, 2024 -- Hyundai's award-winning, all-electric IONIQ 61 sedan was today named Favorite Plug-In Vehicle by the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA). The IONIQ 6 stood out to the nonprofit organization's automotive media membership for its eye-catching design, intuitive connectivity, ultra-fast charging capabilities and spacious interior. Over 100 new vehicles were evaluated over the course of the past year at various drive programs by MAMA members.

"It's important to note that the IONIQ 6 battled a long list of other EVs and plug-in hybrids (both powertrains are eligible for MAMA's Favorite Plug-In Vehicle category award), and after analyzing all the votes, the IONIQ 6 came out way ahead of the rest of the pack," said Robert Duffer, MAMA president. "As MAMA's Favorite Plug-In, the Hyundai IONIQ 6 never stood still at the drive event and impressed media with its technology and design."
