UK drivers can now drive the new Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid. There will be three versions: hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and full electric car. Contact us for a test drive today at Sturgess Hyundai.
Dynamic sculpting gives the new car a futuristic appearance. It is built on a completely new platform, ensuring the look is unlike that of any other Hyundai. The headlight shape seamlessly transitions into the prominent front grille, making the Ioniq's face feel aggressive. The grille incorporates flaps which move to streamline airflow over the car. This should lead to 'class-leading aerodynamics'. In typical hybrid style, blue accents show that the Ioniq uses electric power.
Hyundai has streamlined the hybrid just as much on the inside, reducing the typical array of buttons and switches to a few intuitive controls. Even before starting the hybrid system, the eco-friendly appeal of the Ioniq is reflected in the sustainable materials used to finish the interior. These include volcanic stone and powdered wood.
At launch, the car will be the first 'proper' hybrid available from the manufacturer. The Ioniq's power system brings together a magnetic electric motor and a 1.6-litre, 104bhp petrol engine. Hyundai claims the car will be the first in the world to offer hybrid, plug-in and full electric powertrains in one body style.
A seven-inch information cluster is the portal to a vast range of capabilities in the car. Another eight-inch touchscreen will be available separately, granting drivers access to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay through compatible smartphones. TomTom Live will provide navigation, and customers can optionally add a wireless device charging mat to the equipment list.
