Hyundai talks updates for the new IONIQ

Hyundai has been selling its IONIQ since 2016, and it launched as the first car with three different electric powertrains to choose from. Hyundai has updated the most recent version of the IONIQ with new features bringing enhanced connectivity, driver assistance systems, and infotainment. The interior and exterior of the new IONIQ were updated as well.

The new IONIQ electric has a larger battery that has grown from the 28 kWh of the old car to 38.3 kWh for the new battery. The battery is aiming for a driving range of 294 kilometers under WLTP regulations. The electric motor in the car offers a maximum power of 136 PS and 295 Nm of torque and uses a standard 7.2 kW onboard charger.

The previous version of the IONIQ EV used a 6.6 kW charger as standard. The IONIQ also supports 100 kW fast-charging stations that can charge the battery to 80% in 54 minutes. IONIQ Hybrid and Plug-in both use the 1.6L GDI Kappa engine, a direct-injection four-cylinder gas engine. It makes max power of 105 PS and 147 Nm of torque.

The Hybrid’s electric motor delivers 43.5 PS with maximum torque of 170 Nm with power from an 8.9 kWh lithium-ion-polymer battery. Improved connectivity includes Hyundai Blue Link with embedded telematics, remote start, and remote control of AC systems. The car can also call emergency assistance in an accident.

Hyundai also has an optional Nav system that uses a large 10.25-inch split touch-screen with Cloud-based voice recognition in six languages. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard. The cars also feature Front Collision Warning and Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection with new Cyclist Detection ability and Driver Attention Warning. Lane Keeping Assist and High Beam Assist also come standard. Lane Following Assist is an option to keep the car in its lane. IONIQ Hybrid and Plug-in will launch in July with the EV coming in September.
