Hyundai has continued its teaser campaign for the new Ioniq ‘alternative fuel’ model ahead of its unveiling next month.
Two new sketches preview the Ioniq's styling, with the exterior not too dissimilar to Hyundai’s new Elantra.
A second sketch offers more of a ‘concept-style’ preview for the interior, but features that buyers might expect are ‘present and correct’.
Such features include a centralised infotainment screen, push-button start, familiar air vents and a digitalised instrument cluster.
Hyundai says its new model has a “sleek and simple” exterior designed to reduce drag for maximum efficiency, while the interior is “elegant” and uses environmentally-friendly materials.
Hyundai makes no effort to disguise its desire to target Toyota’s sales-leading Prius in the small hybrid market, with the Korean carmaker snapped testing in the US midway through last year with two Prius models in tow.
Powerplant, model line-ups, power and torque along with expected maximum electric ranges are all under wraps for now, but further details may emerge between now and January. The Ioniq will also be on show at the Geneva and New York motor shows in 2016.
Hyundai has confirmed the Ioniq will be heading to Australia in the second half of next year. Stay tuned to TMR for more.
