This innovative car, set to take the motoring world by storm, is available to test drive in Hybrid version NOW with Berkeley Vale Motors and the full electric model will be arriving in mid November. Available for the first time with a choice of three powertrain set ups: Electric, Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid, it’s paving the way in eco-friendly driving.
All three of the model options tick these boxes. The Hybrid combines a 1.6-litre GDI engine with an electric motor for fast yet quiet acceleration and a CO2 emission figure that’s way less than the 100g/km threshold. Choose the Electric version for zero CO2 emissions while it runs around for up to 173 miles. 0-60mph times are around 11 seconds, so you can expect to get wherever you’re heading fast. Thanks to Hyundai’s clever engineering, it weighs in at just 1,370kg making it ultra-responsive to drive.
Everything about the design of the IONIQ says sophistication. From the outside, you’ll notice how the minimal hatchback silhouette with subtle contours is given a sharper finish with LED daytime running lights and a wide grille. The interior feels high-tech and luxurious thanks to a digital instrument cluster and colour accents in blue, for the Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid, and copper in the Electric version. Every control has been designed to be easy to use and they’re all laid out neatly in the dashboard and central console within close reach.
This innovative car has equally as advanced technology to make your drives more relaxing and hassle-free. A wireless charging point will ensure your phone is never without battery and the Bluetooth connectivity allows you to make calls on the move. If you choose the Premium trim, you’ll get an eight-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation to take the guesswork out of finding the quickest route, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can use your apps while driving.
To help you avoid a collision, the IONIQ has lane-keep assist, autonomous braking and adaptive cruise control as standard.
As soon as the first models arrive, you can enjoy a test drive in the IONIQ of your choice from your nearest Berkeley Vale Hyundai showroom in Thornbury, Gloucestershire.
