Hyundai Improves Ioniq HybridJanuary 17, 2019
Hyundai corrected appearance and changed the interior of the Ioniq Hybrid
Hyundai has introduced an updated Ioniq hybrid. The model, sold over the past three years, has sold over 60 thousand copies.
Externally, the restyled Ioniq can be distinguished from its predecessor by the new bumpers, a different grille, as well as modernized LED headlights and lanterns. In addition, three new body color options have been added to the gamut.
The interior has changed the design of the center console. Appeared multimedia system with a 10.25-inch screen, as well as the control unit with touch keys and black glossy design. Car functions can now be controlled via the app on the smartphone.
In addition, for the first time in the segment, the model learned how to independently switch to electric traction immediately after entering special environmental zones. The regenerative braking force is regulated by means of the steering wheel petals, so that, as they say in the company, you can ride the Ioniq without touching the brake pedal at all.
All modifications of the hybrid are equipped with systems for maintaining traffic lane and preventing frontal collisions. An additional Eco + mode has appeared, in which the electronics always “keep in reserve” a certain amount of energy for emergency situations, for example, for sharp acceleration.
Variants of the power plant machines, which differ depending on the version, remained the same. A conventional hybrid is equipped with a 1.6-liter, 105-horsepower, atmospheric engine and a six-speed robotized gearbox with two clutches, a 43.5-horsepower electric motor and a lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 1.56 kilowatt-hour.
The modification with the possibility of recharging from a household power grid has the same internal combustion engine, but a more powerful 61-strong electric motor and batteries at 8.9 kilowatt-hours. Such a car can drive 50 kilometers exclusively by electric.
A similar update will soon outlast the all-electric version of Ioniq. All cars will be shown to the public at the March Motorshow in Geneva.
