It's now clear to us that Hyundai has almost finished development of all three versions (BEV, PHEV and conventional hybrid) of its IONIQ.
In fact, Hyundai North America CEO Dave Zuchowski says that all three versions of the all-new car will be on sale in the U.S. by the end of 2016.
According to Zuchowski, both the hybrid and pure electric versions of the 5-door hatchback will arrive in Q3 of 2016. First up is the hybrid version, followed by the pure electric approximately one month later. Last on the schedule is the plug-in hybrid IONIQ, though it too is expected to arrive before 2016 comes to a close.
No real details have been revealed for the BEV or PHEV, so all the info we have for now is linked to the conventional hybrid IONIQ (full details here).
IONIQ went on sale last week in South Korea. It will be sold globally and nationwide in the U.S.
