Unexpectedly electrifying.

Forget everything you ever thought about hybrid and electric cars. The all-new IONIQ is the world’s first vehicle to be powered by a choice of three different electrified powertrain options in a single model: hybrid, electric and electric plus. Combining industry leading technologies, ground-breaking use of materials, aerodynamic design and a wealth of intelligent features, the IONIQ prioritizes a smarter, progressive approach to driving — from the way the vehicles look, to the way they drive, to the way they fit your life.

It’s like a ‘normal’ car...but much better.

The IONIQ philosophy – alternative powertrains should have the dynamic ride and handling characteristics that make driving a pleasure. Choose an environmentally conscious vehicle without compromising on the drive, style or versatility.

Aerodynamics that don’t look like a science experiment

You don’t have to compromise on style or space! With the IONIQ you get dynamic style plus best-in-class aerodynamics. Inside, the spacious interior is matched with distinct design cues along the dashboard and throughout the cabin. And, there is tons of trunk space because our innovative battery design is mounted underneath the rear seats (not eating up your trunk space).

A rewarding drive, for you… and the environment

Our class-exclusive battery design allows us to achieve an exceptionally low centre of gravity that greatly enhances agility and helps make
IONIQ so much fun to drive.
All powertrain variants also feature Eco and Sport drive modes. While Eco mode provides the efficiency you’d expect, everything changes in Sport mode. The powertrain uses the electric power to boost torque levels for a completely
different driving feel.

Technologically convenient

An available wireless charging pad means you can charge your compatible smartphone hassle and cable free, and standard Android AutoTM◊ and Apple CarPlayTMΔ put the power of your favourite apps directly on the standard 7.0” touch-screen display.

Smart safety

You and your passengers will be protected by a comprehensive list of available driver assistance technologies, including:

• Blind Sport Detection with Lane Change Assist
• Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
• Lane Departure Warning System
• Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection

How does it work?

HYBRID POWERTRAIN

By using a full-parallel hybrid drive system, the IONIQ hybrid can run on a gasoline internal combustion engine, an electric motor, or both. This provides you with more optimized power and improved fuel economy by allowing the engine and electric motor to supply power simultaneously or independently. Travel over 1,000 kilometres on a single tank of gas^.

1.6L GDI engine

By using a full-parallel hybrid drive system, the IONIQ hybrid can run on a gasoline internal combustion engine, an electric motor, or both. This provides you with more optimized power and improved fuel economy by allowing the engine and electric motor to supply power simultaneously or independently. Travel over 1,000 kilometres on a single tank of gas^.

32 kW Electric motor

The hybrid combines an efficient 1.6L gasoline engine with a powerful 32 kW electric motor.

6-speed DCT transmission

The class-exclusive 6-speed Dual Clutch Transmission improves efficiency and provides instant engine feedback for unparalleled responsiveness.

1.56 kWh Lithium-ion Polymer battery

All IONIQ models store their electrical energy in a highly advanced Lithium-ion Polymer battery. This class-exclusive technology is smaller, lighter, more energy dense, more thermally efficient, more durable, and easier to package than the Nickel-Metal Hydride or Lithium-ion options found in certain competitors.

HYBRID ENERGY FLOW


ELECTRIC POWERTRAIN

The components of the electric powertrain have been engineered to provide excellent driving characteristics and a practical everyday driving range. IONIQ electric combines the high power density of a compact, lightweight, lithium-ion polymer battery with a high-power electric motor and high-efficiency reduction gear. You can travel up to 200 kilometres with a full charge††.

28 kWh Lithium-ion Polymer battery

All IONIQ models store their electrical energy in a highly advanced Lithium-ion Polymer battery. This class-exclusive technology is smaller, lighter, more energy dense, more thermally efficient, more durable, and easier to package than the Nickel-Metal Hydride or Lithium-ion options found in certain competitors.
The IONIQ electric features a larger battery compared to the hybrid model.

Single-speed reduction gear transmission

Shift By Wire technology allows the driver to switch between forward, neutral and reverse — or between the three drive modes — using closely grouped buttons on the centre console.

88kW Electric motor

The 88 kW electric motor’s torque-rich performance is powered by the super efficient 28 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery. Not only does the motor provide torque-rich power to the wheels, but also acts to regenerate energy under certain conditions.

FULLY CHARGED*

Charge the 28.0 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery at home or on-the-go. The estimated driving range is clearly displayed at all times, and the standard navigation system can map out charging stations within your range.

Smart Safety

Lane Departure Warning System

Blind Spot Detection With Lane Change Assist

Autonomous Emergency Braking With Pedestrian Detection

Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

All three IONIQ models offer a wealth of available advanced safety technologies that help you anticipate and respond to hazards on the road.

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM1

Drift outside your lane without signalling and this available system is designed to inform you with audible and visual cues.

BLIND SPOT DETECTION WITH LANE CHANGE ASSIST2

To help you change lanes with confidence, the available Blind Spot Detection uses radar to detect when a vehicle is in the driver’s blind spot. It works in conjunction with Lane Change Assist, which measures the approaching speed of the vehicle in the lane next to you to help determine if a lane change is safe.

AUTONOMOUS EMERGENCY BRAKING WITH PEDESTRIAN DETECTION3

The Autonomous Emergency Braking system can intervene automatically if it detects a potential collision with the vehicle in front of you or pedestrian in your path.

REAR CROSS-TRAFFIC ALERT4

Activated during reverse driving, the available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system uses radar to help identify and warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the side, even before they come into view of the standard rearview camera.

Anatomy of the IONIQ

At the core of the IONIQ is the SUPERSTRUCTURE™, a rigid but lightweight body made of our Advanced High Strength Steel to deliver superior benefits in handling, cabin quietness and occupant safety.

+
+

SUPERHANDLING

The rigid composition of the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ enables more precise tuning of key suspension components. This means that the IONIQ is engineered to deliver agile handling and confidence at higher speeds.

SUPERQUIET

Steel rigidity and extended application of soundproofing materials both help to keep outside noises where they belong.

SUPERSAFETY

The exceptional stiffness and strength of the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ combined with the extended application of structural adhesives to reinforce critical areas helps provide added protection to occupants. In the event of a collision, the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ will absorb harmful energy and help redirect it away from the passenger compartment.
