Update of Decmeber 8th article with the video reveal of the Ioniq
Indeed, the brand has a full range of vehicles and know-how but apart from the electric i10 prototype or fuel-cell ix35, its range of green vehicles is limited in Europe as the Sonata Hybrid remains unavailable on our catalog! Hyundai therefore launches a global offensive with a comprehensive range of powertrains respectful of the environment available in a single model, the Ioniq which can be compared to the Toyota Prius, a unique model in the range specifically designed for clean energies and therefore an important vector of image!
This compact sedan with 5 doors which is presented in an official teaser today will be offered in hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full electric!
The Ioniq hybrid will be based on a 1.6 liter petrol engine, while the plug-in hybrid will receive an additional electric motor on the rear axle making it a 4WD as VW’s GTE engines, finally, the 100% electric Ioniq should offer 200km of range!
Its global launch is planned for next year with a first presentation in Korea in January 2016, followed by the Geneva Motor Show and New York!
