ALL-NEW HYUNDAI IONIQ
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. One unique model, three state-of-the-art powertrain options; it's not only an industry first, but also demonstrates Hyundai's commitment to creating engineering innovations with our owners in mind.
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. Who ever said that fun and frugality were mutually exclusive?

All IONIQ drivetrains feature a compact electric motor capable of delivering impressive torque from the moment you press the accelerator.
Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid models feature a cutting-edge 1.6L GDI 4-cylinder engine achieving a class-leading 40% thermal efficiency, ensuring you make the most of every drop of fuel.
Hyundai was a pioneer in the industry when we launched the first-ever Lithium-ion Polymer battery. All IONIQ models feature this state-of-the-art battery technology that’s smaller, lighter, more energy dense, more thermally efficient, more durable, and easier to package than the Nickel-Metal Hydride or Lithium-ion options found in competitors.
The segment’s first 6-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid) helps finely balance the output of the gasoline engine and electric motor for maximum efficiency. Unlike the Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs) typically found in hybrid models, IONIQ’s DCT also provides unparalleled responsiveness.
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. The sleek silhouette and finely tuned details harness airflow to minimise air resistance and emissions. Front air intakes reduce turbulence around the front wheels, and C-shape LED Daytime Running Lights create an unmistakable presence on any street. IONIQ both tames the wind and electrifies the senses.
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. High torsional rigidity is achieved through an intelligent combination of high-strength steel, the application of structural adhesives and the strategic reinforcement of bodywork connections.
IONIQ is engineered to deliver a comfortable ride and surprisingly agile handling, thanks to its low centre of gravity and multi-link rear suspension (Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid).
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.
The clean, futuristic styling continues inside IONIQ, where sleek forms and high-quality materials are brought together to create an undeniably unique aesthetic. From the perfectly-sculpted heated D-cut steering wheel to the available contrast colour accents, each element of the interior is as forward-thinking as the technologies under the hood. Vehicle controls are grouped logically so you can take advantage of all IONIQ’s advanced features without distraction. IONIQ features a wide range of available premium features, including:
The interior is energised by coloured décor accents.
Banish cable clutter to history with the wireless charging pad**
The digital instrument cluster provides relevant information including energy flow, battery state of charge and Eco Drive info for both ECO and Sport modes.
Xenon High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights feature LED position lamps and an Adaptive Cornering System (ACS) that helps illuminate the road ahead, even as it twists and turns. LED Daytime Running Lights give the IONIQ an unmistakeable light signature.
Blue accent trim located below the vehicle’s Hyundai-signature hexagonal grille hints at IONIQ’s unique electrified powertrain.
The rear spoiler not only adds a sporty accent, it also minimizes turbulence and enhances downforce.
Active air flaps in the front grille open and close automatically in stages to enhance aerodynamic performance at higher speeds.
