Hyundai has announced that it has donated six 2018 Hyundai Ioniq hybrids to the National Park Service. The Ioniq hybrid vehicles have been donated to Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia and North Carolina, Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in California, and National Capital Parks in Washington, D.C.
Each of the three parks has received two Ioniq hybrid vehicles for the staff to use.
“The National Park Service is grateful to Hyundai for this donation, which reflects the long-standing tradition of private sector support for national parks and the National Park Service,” said Reginald Chapple, division chief, Partnerships & Philanthropy, National Park Service. “In these very large parks with widespread facilities and visitor services areas, these vehicles will improve the ability of park staff to care for these iconic places. The donation also supports our effort to convert our fleet to fuel-efficient vehicles to increase sustainability and reduce costs.”
