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 minimize 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 colors blend with the headlights to visually depict the purity of the IONIQ as an eco-friendly car.
