2017 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Colors – More Options Anyone?
The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq hybrid is now on sale in the United States, but the Ioniq family will be growing with the addition of two more models.
The all-electric (EV) version of the new vehicle will be next, and then it will be followed by a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant a little later down the line.
Hyundai US’ official website is a great place to go to get information on specs, dimensions, fuel efficiency, and a host of other goodies about the new Ioniq.
You can even build your own version by choosing a trim level from the 3 that are available, and then adding on accessories, packages, and even exterior colors.
Speaking of those colors, there are 5 exterior colors to choose from, as well as a pair of interior colors.
While that may not seem like a lot, keep in mind that Hyundai uses different exterior colors in different parts of the world.
The European-spec version of the Ioniq comes in hues not available in the US, as does the Korean version.
Put them all together and you get a veritable rainbow of different colors, some of which you can see in the picture below.
For now, let’s look at the 5 Hyundai Ioniq color options that are available in U.S.
2017 Hyundai Ioniq color options
- Ceramic White
- Black Noir Pearl
- Summit Gray
- Symphony Air Silver
- Electric Blue Metallic
This is certainly a very nice selection of shades, and there really isn’t a bad one amongst them, although we admit to being a little partial to the Electric Blue Metallic.
There are more than enough options here to make your Hyundai Ioniq exterior color choice a bit of a tricky one.
We mentioned earlier that there are different colors available in some of the other major auto markets in the world, with European and Korean drivers able to get their Ioniq in shades such as Blazing Yellow, Phoenix Orange, and Demitasse Brown, all of which sound rather glorious.
Red or yellow Ioniq available in U.S.?
Hyundai may well be adopting a wait and see attitude when it comes to the 2017 Ioniq exterior colors, and it would not be a total surprise to see them add more color options to the US version.
If the consumers demand more paint options, Hyundai may just well decide to give it to them, perhaps in the form of a special edition model. Only time will tell.
Colors aside, the Hyundai Ioniq is a unique vehicle in its own right, as it will come in 3 equally exciting drivetrains: hybrid, EV, and PHEV.
Adding a few more exterior colors into the mix would really be nothing more than some sweet icing on an already delicious cake.
