Geneva Motor Show was the first opportunity to see all three versions of the all-new Hyundai IONIQ:

  • IONIQ Hybrid
  • IONIQ Electric
  • IONIQ Plug-in

Autogef├╝hl did an interesting comparison of the cars, calling the IONIQ the most important premiere, specifically because of the three drivetrain options in one model for the very first time.

The IONIQ seems to be decent car with an impressive interior for this class. As you can see on the photos below, the pure electric version doesn’t have gear shifter, but┬árather buttons, which is a nice differentiating feature.

There is open question about charging standard for Hyundai (and Kia) in the future. IONIQ is equipped with Type 2 AC charging inlet (for one or three phase charging depending on the on-board charger capability) and there is space to have CCS Combo (or J1772 Combo in North America) for DC fast charging. However, there is simply no space for Type 2 and CHAdeMO at the same time in IONIQ Electric.

Quick specs IONIQ Electric:

  • 28 kWh battery optimistic 155 miles/250 km on NEDC standard (real world/South Korean cycle (details): 105 miles/169 km)
  • 88 kW (120 PS) electric motor with 295 Nm of torque
  • DC fast charging up to 80% in 24 minutes at 100 kW

Quick specs for IONIQ Plug-in:

  • 8.9 kWh battery up to over 50 kilometres (31 miles) in all-electric mode (our estimates: around 25 miles/40km)
  • 45 kW (61 PS) electric motor and 1.6-litre GDI four-cylinder Kappa engine

    Quite ingenious to be a Prius and Leaf competitor in one car. In fact I prefer the Ioniq’s styling over either. And from the specs and marketing, it sounds like much better driving dynamics as well. Too bad they couldn’t fit a larger battery in the plugin hybrid version to be a serious Volt competitor as well.

    The all electric has a moonroof, good point but it has the worst front end of the 3 versions. Compare yourself @ 1:45, 612 & 7:30

    Nice to see Hyundai finally get onboard EV and PHEV.

      I like the frontend, taste is something peculiar.

      Also, there are 2 plug caps hanging from the charging socket, so that’s probably CCS with type 2.

    It’s interesting that they removed the shifter for the BEV version. Most conversions keep most of the gear the same.

  4. ericonline says:

    45 kw on the phev seems pretty weak. Anyone have any guess how long it would take to get to 60 mph? This might be a great second car to add to a bev.

    1. Jychevyvolt says:

      It’s has a gas engine that assist in acceleration. Not a true range extender like the volt.

    Thanks for the video. Any idea about the headlights on the three models? I believe the HEV has projector HIVs–not sure about the other two. I was really hoping the HEV would have LED headlamps.

    1. Jay Cole says:

      On the headlights: this info (trim spec packages) has not been officially/publically released for North America/Europe

      …but the full LED package is/will be available available as part of the “Q” trim level upgrade … otherwise only the DRLs are LED in the base package.
