Introducing the Hyundai IONIQ

The Hyundai IONIQ is available in three forms; hybrid, plug-in hybrid and fully electric. It's a sleek and stylish hatchback that's designed with pure efficiency as its number one goal, aiming to combine the needs of today's motorists with tomorrow's environmental goals.

It may look like a saloon, but the IONIQ is actually a hatchback with an extremely large boot and a tremendously aerodynamic profile that enables it to use as little petrol - or electricity - as possible when out on the road.

The IONIQ makes sense for many different buyers. Because of its quiet and comfortable ride, as well as its efficiency, it makes for an excellent motorway cruiser. But with five doors and a big boot, it can also be considered as a great family car, too.

Design and Practicality

From a design perspective, Hyundai placed a great deal of emphasis on aerodynamics when drawing up plans for the IONIQ. The drag coefficient (which measures how well it slips through the air) of its coupé-style shape is just 0.24, and that's class-leading.

From a practicality perspective, the IONIQ seats five people, and the boot is an impressive 443 litres - more than a typical family hatch and slightly less than you might find on a mid-size SUV. The rear seats fold down flat, too.

The hybrid batteries are fitted underneath the rear seats, so there's no real impact on interior roominess.

Technology and Safety

Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid

The IONIQ is pretty well kitted out; featuring alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, cruise control, and touchscreen multimedia as standard. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity are included too, as is a rear-view parking camera. Standard safety equipment includes autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane keep assist.

Other advanced technology includes the sat nav on the electric model that gives you a clear radius around your current location as to how far you can travel on the current charge. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid models get active air flaps to assist powertrain cooling, too.

From a safety standpoint, the IONIQ exceeds in this area. It achieved a maximum five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, thanks to a full suite of airbags and lots of standard safety tech.

Engines and Performance

Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid

Self-charging hybrid models are fitted with a 1.6-litre petrol internal combustion engine (ICE) that combines with an electric motor to use fuel in the most efficient way. These models will return around 62.8mpg (combined cycle).

Plug-in hybrid models have the ability to be driven in pure electric mode, with zero tailpipe emissions for up to 39 miles. They're powered by a combination of a 1.6-litre petrol engine and an electric motor but feature a larger 8.9kWh battery than the 1.56kWh found in the HEV variant.

The pure electric variant has an all-electric range of up to 193 miles, thanks to the 38kWh battery. Unlike the other two models, the BEV doesn't have an ICE to rely on but is powered purely by an electric motor.

Charging

Hyundai IONIQ Charging

Both the Electric and Plug-in Hybrid will need plugging-in to charge their batteries.

The Hybrid model is recharged by a combination of the engine and through regenerative braking. Because of this, it doesn't need plugging-in to recharge.

With the two models that need plugging-in, you have a variety of options for charging. Thousands of public charging stations are located around the UK, or you can charge at home using a dedicated wall box or a standard 3-pin socket.

Using a wall box, the IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid can be charged to 100 percent in just over two hours. The IONIQ Electric will take around six hours to reach a full charge, using a wall box. Alternatively, the electric model can be charged to 80 percent capacity in less than one hour on a 50kW DC charger.
