2023 CleanTechnica Car of the Year finalists for the US market ended up being the Hyundai IONIQ 6

the Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV, the Nissan Ariya, and the Toyota BZ4X.

Frankly, it wasn’t the best year (Q3 2022 to Q2 2023) for new entrants on the US EV market.

From the moment the finalists were set, it seemed clear who would win it.

The Hyundai IONIQ 6 ran away with the title. The sleek electric model won 81% of the vote.

I can’t say why each of you who voted for the IONIQ 6 did so, but I can explain why I love the electric car.
