The Ioniq Electric is powered by an electric motor with 88kW of power and 295Nm of torque. The motor drives the front wheels via single-speed transmission.
Top speed is rated at 165km/h, and the electric hatch is said to have a range of around 250km when its 28kWh lithium-ion polymer battery is fully charged.
Both the Ioniq Hybrid and Plug-in feature a Kappa 1.6-litre direct-injection four-cylinder petrol engine with 77kW of power and 147Nm of torque.
Unlike the Toyota Prius, which uses an e-CVT, the Ioniq Hybrid and Plug-in employ a six-speed dual-clutch transmission with a built-in electric motor. Hyundai claims that this, along with the rear multi-link suspension, endows the Ioniq with a “more dynamic driving experience”.
