The All-New Ioniq Is How Hyundai Plans To Take On The Prius

Reveal

Two hybrids and one electric make up the lineup.

Hyundai has released information on all three versions of the Ioniq ahead of the cars debuts at next week’s Geneva Motor Show. The new Ioniq is the world’s first model to be offered with three electrified powertrains and promises to be a proper opponent to the Toyota Prius. The plug-in and hybrid models both use the same 1.6-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine that makes 104 hp and 108 lb-ft of torque mated to a six-speed double-clutch transmission. The plug-in hybrid, however, gets an electric motor that makes 60 hp, compared to 43 hp in the hybrid.

Thanks to its 8.9 kWh battery, the plug-in model claims to have 31 miles of electric range, while the regular hybrid makes do with a 1.56 kWh battery. Hyundai hasn’t released all the specs for the all-electric Ioniq, but has released a set of numbers: 28 kWh battery, 118 hp and 103 mph. Range is a claimed 155 miles, but there’s no word on what type of cycle that’s on. To help differentiate the three vehicles from one another, there are blue accents on the Ioniq Hybrid and plug-in, while the Inoiq Electric has bespoke copper colored accents. There’s no word on when or what type of version of the Ioniq will go on sale in the US, but we don’t expect the new green lineup to go on sale this year.
