Details of Hyundai’s green Ioniq trio are now out in the open, with the carmaker specifying power outputs and electric-only ranges for its new model.
The conventional hybrid and the plug-in hybrid will be powered by a 1.6 litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 77kW and 147Nm, matched with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic. The engine boasts a thermal efficiency rating of 40 percent.
Electric propulsion for the hybrid variant will come via a 32kW motor with 170Nm of torque, drawing power from a 1.56kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
Combined available output for the hybrid is 104kW and 265Nm, with a top speed rating of 185km/h.
For the Ioniq PHEV, the electric motor is beefed up to 45kW while the battery pack is an 8.9kWh unit. Using the electric motor alone, the PHEV variant will travel over 50km on a full charge.
Hyundai’s all-electric Ioniq gets an 88kW/295Nm motor, matched with a 28kWh battery pack. The EV version gets a single-speed auto in place of the dual-clutch unit, and top speed is around 165km/h.
From a full charge, the Ioniq EV can potentially travel more than 250km.
Still in the ‘unknown’ category, however, are the official fuel consumption figures for the hybrid and PHEV variants with Hyundai keeping the numbers under wraps, for now.
Hyundai’s home market of Korea is expected to be the first to see the Ioniq in showrooms, and the EV version is tipped to be first cab off the rank. Pricing for the Korean market is estimated to start at around AU$45,000.
Australia will have to wait until 2017 to see the Ioniq in local showrooms, and Hyundai’s local arm is yet to decide on which variants it will offer.
