Considering since in 2015, Hyundai has been dripping out news about the Ioniq— the hybrid it really hopes can dismiss the Toyota Prius.
Now we have actually seen it personally at the Geneva Motor Show. The automobile is distinct in the market due to the fact that it utilizes 3 various powertrains on one platform: hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and complete electrical.
It’s the latter 2 that are the most fascinating. The plug-in hybrid will utilize a 8.9 kWh battery to reach 50 kilometers (around 30 miles) on electrical power prior to the fuel engine begins to obtain you the rest of your trip.
The all-electric Ioniq loads a 28 kWh lithium-ion pack, helpful for 250 km of variety or about 155 miles, and beginning around EUR38,000. That’s around the exact same variety as the next-generation Nissan Leaf, and a bit except the Chevy Bolt. The hybrid and plug-in variations must be priced around the like the Toyota Prius, if not a bit more affordable.
Model shall release in 2017 in the USA.
