Hyundai Motor has revealed
further details of the new Ioniq ahead of its launch in Korea later this month.
The innovative alternative-fuel compact vehicle, now available for pre-order in
selected markets, is the first-ever car to offer a choice of three efficient
and ultra-low emission powertrain options in one body type.
The latest interior and exterior renderings
reveal more of the Ioniq’s eco-friendly credentials, with its advanced
powertrain technology central to Hyundai Motor’s aim for the world’s best
hybrid fuel-efficiency. The newly-developed platform, available with full
electric, plug-in gasoline / electric hybrid, or gasoline / electric hybrid
powertrains, also delivers a fun and responsive driving experience to match the
emotional appeal of the car’s eye-catching lines.
The exterior of the Ioniq features a
distinguished, cutting-edge aerodynamic design. Simple yet carefully wrought
contours enhance the Ioniq’s coupe-like silhouette and minimise wind resistance
by assisting the efficient management of airflow. At the front of the car,
familiar Hyundai design themes are evident - notably the signature hexagonal
grille – as striking blue and white colours blend with the headlights to
visually depict the purity of the Ioniq as an eco-friendly car.
The smooth, elegant and
uncluttered design theme continues inside the Ioniq as its futuristic
perspective draws on the car’s hybrid credentials. The efficient use of
interior space provides a sleek and light feel, which continues through the
logical layout of control functions. Simple and stylish surfaces make use of
eco-friendly materials to convey a futuristic yet warm cabin ambience that will
meet the needs of those wishing to reduce the impact their motoring has on the
environment while enjoying outstanding fuel efficiency, performance and
The Ioniq is due to be shown
at the Geneva International Motor Show and the New York Auto Show in March 2016
after its world premiere in Korea later this month.
