The best of both worlds

Under IONIQ's bonnet two hearts beat as one: a 32kW electric motor and a Kappa 1.6-litre Atkinson GDi engine. IONIQ switches seamlessly between the conventional engine and electric motor. Gasoline direct injection extracts the maximum amount of energy from each droplet of fuel while delivering 77 kW of power and 147 Nm of torque.

IONIQ Hybrid Powertrain
HYBRID POWER TRAIN

The IONIQ Hybrid delivers performance, impressive efficiency and low emissions. The petrol engine, electric motor, Lithium-ion polymer battery and dual clutch transmission are engineered to function together with optimum efficiency.

IONIQ Hybrid Electric Engine
ELECTRIC MOTOR

High torque and high efficiency are the principal attributes of the 32 kW electric motor. It delivers impressive pace during initial acceleration, and assists with adding extra power at higher road speeds.

IONIQ Hybrid 1.6L Petrol Engine
1.6L Petrol Engine

The specially calibrated 1.6 litre GDi internal combustion engine delivers 77 kW of power with leading energy efficiency. 

IONIQ Hybrid Lithium ion Polymer Battery
Lithium-ion Polymer Battery

The 1.56 KWh high-power battery has superior charge/ discharge characteristics, maximising both electric driving and energy regeneration.

IONIQ Hybrid Dual Clutch Transmission
Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)

The IONIQ Hybrid transforms the hybrid driving experience by integrating a 6-speed DCT that delivers smooth and responsive gear shifting. The combination of carefully chosen gear ratios and an intelligent shift strategy allows the IONIQ to efficiently and quickly pick the optimum gear.

Low centre of gravity
Low centre of gravity

By mounting the battery under the seats, IONIQ Hybrid is able to attain an exceptionally low centre of gravity. This greatly enhances agility and helps make IONIQ so much fun to drive.

IONIQ Hybrid Predictive Energy Management
Predictive energy management

The highly advanced battery management system collects and analyses data on your travel routes, driving style and habits for optimal energy storage. Advanced algorithms are employed to switch seamlessly between electric and gasoline propulsion modes and recover braking energy to recharge the batteries.

IONIQ Hybrid Eco and Sport Drive Modes
Eco and Sport Drive Modes

While the Eco mode maximizes fuel efficiency, the Sport mode engages operating parameters that modify gear shifting, acceleration, steering feel and digital instruments for a more rewarding driving experience.
