Vincentric Recognizes Two Hyundai Vehicles in Best Fleet Value in America Awards for Their Low Cost of Ownership

  • Elantra SE Recognized For the Third Year In a Row

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., April 24, 2018
– Leading cost and value analysis group Vincentric has once again recognized Hyundai for delivering exceptional value, recognizing the 2018 Elantra SE and 2018 Ioniq Hybrid Blue with its Best Fleet Value in America awards. The award marks the third consecutive win for the Elantra SE in the Compact segment, while the Ioniq Hybrid Blue’s recognition marks Hyundai’s second consecutive win in the Hybrid category.

The Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America awards recognize specific vehicles and trims which have the lowest total cost of ownership in the greatest number of measured lifecycle cost scenarios. Now in its 13th year, the prize measures cost-of-ownership using eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs. Winners were identified by determining which vehicles had the lowest fleet lifecycle cost in the most scenarios for its segment.

“Vincentric’s continued recognition of Hyundai models and our brand overall is a testament to our commitment to value for our customers,” said Scott Margason, director, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “In the commercial vehicle space where value is so key, the consistent recognition of excellence is a win from a design and performance perspective.”

“Our Best Fleet Value in America awards highlight vehicles that provide retained value throughout their fleet lifecycle,” said David Wurster, president of Vincentric. “Hyundai’s continued wins across multiple   categories shows their ability to deliver high value and a great product mix in the commercial vehicle space.”

Now in its sixth generation, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra sports a bold aerodynamic design with a comprehensive suite of safety features, modern interior styling with class-above features and user-friendly technologies. Hyundai’s approach for the Ioniq Hybrid Blue delivers an uncompromising design and driving experience coupled with the latest in safety and convenience technologies and an EPA-estimated 58 MPG combined rating, the highest rating of any non-plug-in vehicle sold in the U.S. market.
