The South Korea-based car manufacturer has recently been officially revealed the 2020 Ioniq Hybrid along with its plug-in hybrid and electric versions. Hyundai provides several comprehensive changes and significant improvements to the new Ioniq hatchback range, including its hybrid and electric versions. One of the most striking changes is the use of a larger battery pack on the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Electric which is claimed to be able to increase its driving range.
The previous generation model was equipped with 28.0-kWh battery pack, but it’s now being replaced with a new 38.3-kWh large battery pack with a driving range of up to 182 miles, according to the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). Speaking of its design style, the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid gets a number of refreshments and new interior features, including a new front grille with angular design, new LED headlights and taillights, new wheels designs, revised bumpers, and several new exterior paint colors.
Moving into the cabin, the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid has received several changes to its interior features such as redesigned dashboards featuring more horizontal theme designs, an optional new 10.3-inch infotainment screen, and HVAC controls with a new gloss-black panel. Hyundai now also offers Ioniq’s Green-Zone Drive Mode (GDM) feature which is claimed to automatically move from hybrid mode to full electric vehicle mode (EV) under certain conditions. Some other standard equipment comes from Kona Electric, including a one-pedal driving capability, and new adjustable regenerative braking system.
Estimated release date for the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid is around the end of this year, where the new model will be ready to be launched at the U.S. and European markets later this year. While the price is expected not to rise much from the current model price which starts at $23,285 for the entry-level 2019 Ioniq Hybrid. With the same estimated price as the current model, the 2020 Ioniq Hybrid is now equipped with active-safety features which include standard automated emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist.
