There will be three vehicle options of a new Ioniq branch by Hyundai: electric battery, hybrid, and hybrid plug–in. This week, during the automobile exhibition in New York there will be more details available on the versions. However, for now it is known that EV variant will get a battery stack for 28 kilowatts, which is similar to the Kia’s EV. It means that on a single charging the EV will surpass 110 miles. In June, it will be possible to purchase EV in South Korea. In the U.S., the automobile will be available by the end of this year.
Before, there were discussions that the EV would go a distance of 155 miles, but the representatives of the company confirmed it would have 110–miles range.
The EV option will get pedal levers so a driver will control the friction rate in the automobile’s brake regenerative. In addition, the EV will have a navigation system of eco–routing, like the other two models in the Ioniq branch. This system will save the fuel on the hybrids and will make the best application of the branch on the EV.
In January, the hybrid option premiered in South Korea. It has both the eco and the standard variant. The eco variant has an economy on fuel – it will need one gallon for 56 miles.
