Hyundai Ioniq Plug-in: full details and prices announced
Hyundai has revealed full details of the Plug-in version of its Ioniq hybrid, which will join its electric and conventional hybrid siblings when order books open next week.
From the outside, it remains identical to the rest of the range (bar an extra filler cap for the battery charger on the front wing), and being rechargeable means it offers 39 miles of all-electric range too.
Combined with the 103bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine, the larger battery means it’s purportedly capable of up to 680 miles between fill ups, making it a lot more suitable for long distances than the full electric car, that’s capable of around 110 miles per recharge.
CO2 output stands at just 26g/km, resulting in zero-rate VED for the first year, and also a BIK rate of just 9% for 2017/18. Official fuel economy stands at 257mpg, although, as other plug-ins have proven, you’re unlikely to match this in real-world conditions.
Two trims will be available, with the Premium offering 16in alloy wheels, a 8in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and adaptive cruise control.
The range-topping Premium SE adds the likes of a half-leather interior, heated steering wheel, electrically operated driver’s seat, automatic headlights and wipers as well as a plethora of safety kit such as autonomous emergency braking and a blind spot detection system.
To make sure you won’t be searching for charge points too often, Hyundai can also provide a 7kW home charger, which makes filling up those batteries as easy as possible.
The cheaper of the two gets a list price of £24,995, while the Premium SE is priced at £26,795. Lease rates are available now, you can find the best deals here. Alternatively, check out our review of the non plug-in hybrid Ioniq instead.
