In Australia, the Ioniq will be offered in hybrid form initially, although Hyundai's local arm has confirmed that it is working to get the plug-in model onto the schedule.
On the styling front, the Ioniq wears a grille and headlight design that is both familiar Hyundai fare and an evolution towards what could be a new design language for the wider range.
Noticeable on the front grille is a smooth panel that would likely house adaptive cruise-control functionality.
The Ioniq is due to go on sale in Australia in the third quarter of 2016.
