- At the Geneva Motor Show 2016, Hyundai Motor is introducing the All-New Hyundai IONIQ line-up, consisting of: IONIQ Hybrid, IONIQ Electric and IONIQ Plug-in. The world's first model offering three electrified powertrains, IONIQ will make low-to zero-emission mobility accessible to everyone. The new approach of Hyundai Motor delivers an uncompromised design and driving experience through innovative technology, and offers customers the latest connectivity and safety technologies.
The All-New Hyundai IONIQ is an important milestone of Hyundai Motor's sustainability strategy, bringing to market new innovative technologies and extending the company's product range to support further organic sales growth in Europe.
Jochen Sengpiehl, Vice President Marketing at Hyundai Motor Europe, said: 'IONIQ is an important step forward for our brand. We are bringing a unique new approach to e-mobility, wîth no compromise on design, driving pleasure and connectivity. And we're making it accessible to more customers, further extending our product line-up.'
The IONIQ Hybrid and IONIQ Plug-in both feature the new Kappa 1.6-litre GDI, direct injection petrol, four-cylinder engine wîth a class-leading thermal efficiency of 40 per cent delivering 105 PS and 147 Nm of torque. The engine has been tailored to the hybrid application and is combined wîth the direct responding, smooth shifting six-speed double clutch transmission – differentiating the IONIQ from its competitors wîth a more dynamic driving experience. The mated electric motor enables pure electric driving and delivers instant torque as the chassis wîth rear multi-link suspension greatly enhances driving dynamics.
The IONIQ Hybrid's electric motor delivers 32 kW (43.5 PS) wîth maximum torque of 170 Nm, powered by a lithium-ion polymer battery wîth 1.56 kWh capacity positioned under the rear seats. In combination wîth the 1.6-litre GDI engine IONIQ Hybrid offers a system output of 103.6 kW (141 PS) and up to 265 Nm of torque accelerating to a top speed of up to 185 km/h (115mph) wîth targeted CO2 emissions as low as 79 g/km (combined).
Drivers choosing the IONIQ Plug-in can safely rely on approximately over 50 kilometres (31 miles) of estimated pure electric driving range powered by the potent 8.9 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery. The 45kW (61 PS) electric motor together wîth the 1.6-litre GDI four-cylinder Kappa engine targets CO2 emissions as low as 32 g/km.
The IONIQ Electric offers pure e-mobility through a 28 kWh Lithium-ion Polymer battery for an estimated range of over 250 km (155 miles). The instantly available maximum torque of 295 Nm is delivered by the electric motor wîth maximum output of 88 kW (120 PS) through the single-speed reducer transmission accelerating the car up to 165 km/h (103mph).
The customer experience inside the IONIQ line-up is enhanced through state-of-the art connectivity features like Android Auto, Apple Car Play as well as Tom Tom live services and wireless charging of your smartphone. Furthermore, the driving experience becomes digital through the 7-inch TFT instrument cluster displaying all key driver information.
A holistic and innovative safety package including Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist System, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Smart Cruise Control ensures high safety levels for drivers and passengers alike.
All versions feature the sleek aerodynamic silhouette wîth a class-leading Cd value of 0.24. A fluid exterior shape and natural air flow channels emphasize the aerodynamic body lines and volumes.
Blue accents on the IONIQ Hybrid and IONIQ Plug-in emphasize specific elements on the exterior and in the interior for a seamless design. The IONIQ Electric features exclusive copper coloured accents to signify electricity flowing through the car's interior.
Thomas A. Schmid, Chief Operating Officer at Hyundai Motor Europe, said: 'With our pioneering ix35 Fuel Cell electric vehicle and several hybrid and plug-in hybrid models sold around the world, Hyundai Motor already has a proven capability in electrified powertrains. Now, wîth the launch of our first dedicated model, we are taking the lead as the only car manufacturer wîth hybrid, electric, plug-in hybrid and fuel cell vehicles in production.'
