Hyundai will bring the Euro-spec IONIQ with its three different versions to the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
Earlier this week we had the chance to meet the IONIQ Electric for the first time and now Hyundai has released full details regarding the IONIQ trio in European specification. The eco-friendly family will be revealed on March 1 at the South Korean company’s stand in the Palexpo center in Geneva.
Starting with the IONIQ Hybrid, it combines a 1.6-liter GDI petrol engine with 105 horsepower (78 kW) and an electric motor with 44 hp (32 kW) for a total system output of 141 hp (104 kW). The car uses a 1.56-kWh lithium-ion-polymer battery and emits only 79 grams CO2 per kilometer in combined cycle, according to the manufacturer.
Go for the IONIQ Plug-in and you’ll get over 31 miles (50 kilometers) of estimated pure electric range, provided by a 8.9-kWh lithium-ion polymer battery. A 61-hp (45 kW) electric motor working together with the 1.6 GDI should guarantee CO2 emissions as low as 32 g/km.
Last but not least, there’s also the IONIQ Electric which is powered by an electric motor and a 28-kWh lithium-ion-polymer battery. Interestingly, Hyundai claims the EV has an estimated range of over 155 miles (250 km), which differs from the South Korean version with around 50 miles (80 km). The electric motor of the vehicle provides an instant maximum torque of 218 pound-feet (295 Nm) and a maximum output of 120 hp (88 kW), accelerating the car up to 103 miles per hour (165 kilometers per hour).
All models from the IONIQ family have a Cd value of 0.24 and can be equipped with an array of safety and assistance systems, like autonomous emergency braking, blind spot detection, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control.
