Here’s A Look At The Eco-Friendly Hyundai Ioniq
Hyundai is expanding its eco-friendly vehicle lineup with a 1-2-3 punch centered on a single vehicle platform. When the first-ever 2017 Ioniq Electric hits dealerships this fall it will subsequently be followed by a Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid, giving Hyundai a trifecta of alt-fuel hatchbacks aimed squarely at the Toyota Prius.
This Ioniq Hybrid features a new 1.6-liter direct-injected 4-cylinder engine running on the efficiency-minded Atkinson cycle, delivering an estimated 104 horsepower. Utilizing a 6-speed double-clutch transmission differentiates the Ioniq which has been developed for a more dynamic and engaging driving experience. Paired with a 32 kW electric motor, the Ioniq produces instantaneous torque at low speeds with available power assist at higher vehicle speeds.
