The new 2017 Hyundai Ioniq is the world’s first vehicle offering three electrified powertrains and enters the market priced at $24,299 for the Ioniq Hybrid and $35,649 for the Ioniq Electric.
The Hybrid model will be available at Hyundai dealers across Canada while the Electric model will be primarily available at dealers that have installed charging stations and located in provinces with government purchase incentives, namely Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia.
Pricing for the Ioniq Electric Plus plug-in hybrid will be announced closer to that model’s on-sale date in late 2017.
The Ioniq Hybrid starts at $24,299. It combines a 1.6L gasoline engine with a powerful 32 kW electric motor. It also features the first-ever 6-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) in a hybrid vehicle.
Thanks to its parallel hybrid powertrain architecture, the Ioniq Hybrid can run on the gasoline engine, electric motor, or both, even at highway speeds.
The Ioniq Electric starts at $35,649. The 88 kW motor is powered exclusively using energy stored in the vehicle’s 28 kWh Lithium-ion Polymer battery pack. On a full charge, Ioniq Electric offers up to an estimated 200 km of emission-free driving.
