Hyundai reveals full details and specs about their new Ioniq dedicated hybrid car!
The Ioniq will be the first vehicle ever to offer three different electrified powertrains, opening it up to a wider audience looking for a low to zero emissions car.
It’s not just all about the powertrains, though, as Hyundai also offers a stunning array of technology, as well as connectivity and safety features in the new Ioniq.
The Ioniq hybrid checks off a couple of boxes in Hyundai’s list of things they are looking to achieve.
It is part of their sustainability through technology plan, as well as being a way to further promote organic sales growth throughout Europe, USA and Asia.
Ioniq hybrid car
It will be a Kappa 1.6-liter GDI 4-cylinder engine that will appear under the hood of the Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid versions of the Ioniq.
Thermal efficiency is at 40% with this unit, which is best in class, and the power output comes in at 105 PS and 147 Nm of torque.
The engine is mated to a 6-speed dual clutch transmission that allows for much smoother shifting than you would ordinarily expect from a vehicle in this category.
The electric motor that is part of the setup allows for pure electric driving, delivering instant toque in the process.
When combined with a rear multi-link suspension, you get a vehicle with excellent driving dynamics.
The electric motor in question cranks out 32 kW (43.5 PS) and 170 Nm of torque.
It is powered by a lithium ion battery that is discretely hidden under the rear seats, and which has a 1.56 kWh capacity.
The combined capacity of the electric motor and the engine comes in at 141 PS and 265 Nm of torque, with the Ioniq having a top speed of around 185 km/h.
Hyundai are targeting low emissions in the 79 g/km (combined) range.
Ioniq plug-in vehicle
The Ioniq Plug-In delivers a range in the region of 50 km when driving in pure electric mode. Power is delivered via a powerful 8.9 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery. The motor here is a 45kWh unit that mates to the 1.6 GDI four-cylinder Kappa engine to deliver emissions as low as 32 g/km.
Ioniq Electric vehicle
The Ioniq Electric uses a 28 kWh Lithium-ion-Polymer battery to deliver a driving range that comes in around the 250 km mark.
Maximum torque available is set at 295 NM, and that comes from an electric motor with an output of 88 kW.
The top speed of the Electric model comes in at around 165 km/h.
Hyundai has made connectivity a key element of the Ioniq, and allow users to connect via Android Auto, Apple Car Play, and Tom Tom live services. You will even be able to charge your smartphone wirelessly.
All the information that you need will be delivered via a 7-ich TFT instrument cluster.
Safety, for driver and passengers, is very much in play with the Ioniq, as it comes with features such as Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist System, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Smart Cruise Control.
Design wise, all of the versions of the Ioniq come with the same commitment to aerodynamics that results in a class-leading Cd value of 0.24. The shape of the exterior has a fluidity that allows for this, as well as natural air flow channels that help with aerodynamics.
The Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid come with blue exterior and interior elements, while the Ioniq Electric goes with copper touches.
These are used to give the feel that electricity is flowing through the vehicle as it moves.
