Hyundai Ioniq teased further

A second set of teaser sketches for the new Hyundai Ioniq have been handed down today, just weeks after spy photos revealed all there is to see of the ultra-green car’s final styling.

As those earlier shots reveal, and as these sketches hint - albeit in the usual muscular concept fashion - the Ioniq’s styling will walk the line between conventional liftback car and the “look at me, I’m a hybrid” look established by the Toyota Prius and Honda Insight.

These teasers also offer a revealing new look at the Ioniq’s interior design, which it appears will feature a broad white dashboard, although a black version may also be offered.

A clean, modern and clutter-free layout will be the key view of the Ioniq’s interior, with a broad main display set above a secondary screen likely intended for air-conditioning control.

The Ioniq will be the first production car to be offered in hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full-electric forms. And while Australia is so far only scheduled to receive the regular hybrid model, Hyundai’s local arm has confirmed it is pushing to add the plug-in model to the local line-up.

The Ioniq will make its global debut in Korea this month, with an Australian debut locked in for the third quarter of 2016.
