Hyundai has partially taken the wraps off its new Ioniq hybrid, a car that the Korean automaker hopes will give the Toyota Prius a run for its money.
Here’s what we know so far about the all-new 2017 Hyundai Ioniq:
1. It is Promising Performance
Hyundai says the Ioniq 'was created with dynamic ride and handling at its core.' The lithium ion polymer battery is kept lower to the ground and closer to the middle of the car, giving the car a lower center of gravity, which helps handling and stability. A rear multi-link suspension is used and Hyundai says a new smooth-shifting six-speed dual clutch transmission will help with fuel economy and performance.
2. Here are the Specs we Know
The Atkinson-cycle 1.6-liter direct-injection gas engine will output 105 horsepower and about 108 pound-feet of torque and electric motor gets 43.5 hp and about 125 lb-ft for a total system output of 148.5 hp and 233 lb-ft. Hyundai
The New Year is upon us and that means the 2016 Detroit Auto Show is right around the corner.
Each year, the North American International Auto Show plays host to numerous worldwide debuts, with last year’s show stunning the crowd with the new Ford GT, Shelby GT350R and production Acura NSX, to name a few. There will certainly be some surprises at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, but here are AutoGuide.com‘s top 10 most anticipated debuts that have been confirmed to make a public appearance from January 11-24, 2016.
Hyundai has released fairly detailed renderings of its upcoming Ioniq hybrid.
The car will take its styling cues from Hyundai’s current design language, which includes that big hexagonal grille and blue accents. Good aerodynamics were a major driving factor behind the design and Hyundai has already claimed the car will have a 'class-leading' drag coefficient.
Inside, the Ioniq uses eco-friendly materials and has a clean looking dash layout.
The car is looking to take the fight to the Toyota Prius, with Hyundai already promising that the Ioniq will top the Prius in highway fuel efficiency. It will be the only vehicle available that comes in one body style and offers three electrified powertrains, a plug-in hybrid, conventional hybrid and a fully electric setup.
Korea will host the Ioniq’s official debut later this month while the Geneva International Motor Show in March will be the car’s first public
