To create IONIQ, an all-new car designed from the ground up for exceptional efficiency, Hyundai started with a simple question: who said eco-friendly vehicles need to be boring? Hyundai will soon bring this philosophy to life with the IONIQ Electric, IONIQ Hybrid, and IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid.
Forget everything you ever thought about hybrid and electric cars. Depending on how you drive, how far, and how often, each IONIQ has its electrifying advantages. Once you get to know them, it'll be easy to decide which one is right for you.
IONIQ Hybrid combines a highly efficient 1.6L gasoline engine with a powerful 27 kW electric motor for impressive performance and fuel efficiency. For unmatched responsiveness, it also features the first-ever Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) in a hybrid vehicle. Each element of the IONIQ Hybrid's Blue Drive powertrain works in harmony to give you the fuel economy you've always wanted from a hybrid vehicle with a driving experience that's more engaging than you ever thought possible.
The IONIQ Plug-In is a compelling alternative to the Hybrid. Its larger 8.9 kWh Lithium-ion Polymer battery feeds a more powerful 45 kW electric motor, delivering up to 37 km (est.) of all-electric, emission-free driving. Together with the high-efficiency gasoline engine it delivers a power boost with no compromise on maximum driving range. Plus, the battery recuperates energy on the move and can be recharged via an external power supply. Now that's power worth plugging into.
All the science, without looking like a project. The Hyundai IONIQ Electric's 88 kW motor is powered exclusively using energy stored in the vehicle's 28 kWh Lithium-ion Polymer battery pack. On a full charge, IONIQ Electric offers up to 170 km (est.) of emission-free driving. Since the battery is located low in the chassis, it lowers the car's centre of gravity, which is key to a rewarding and responsive drive.
IONIQ is the only vehicle in the industry to be powered by a choice of three different electrified powertrain options. The vehicle's lightweight structure was designed from the ground up to offer enhanced efficiency and a responsive driving experience.

Just as important as advanced power train technology are aerodynamics and a lightweight, high-strength vehicle structure. IONIQ ticks all of these boxes. With a drag coefficient of just 0.24 the IONIQ is one of the most aerodynamic cars on the market.
COMFORT & AGILITY
IONIQ is engineered to deliver a comfortable ride and
surprisingly agile handling, thanks to its low centre of

HIGH STRENGTH, LIGHT WEIGHT
The intelligent use of Advanced High Strength Steel gives
the IONIQ its structural toughness, and lightweight
aluminium brings lightness to the front and rear cross
members, hood and tailgate.
Exterior design elements combine to enhance the clean, athletic styling of the IONIQ while the interior is defined by high-tech design purity and innovation. The effect is futuristic yet welcoming. Controls are clearly organised for logical, intuitive operation, making it effortless to immerse yourself in the driving experience.
