After months of anticipation, Hyundai releases first sketches of IONIQ hybrid vehicle. The three images have given motorists an idea of what the new hybrid car will look like and what environmentally friendly technology it will feature.
Judging by the three sketches that Hyundai made official on Wednesday, it appears that the new hybrid IONIQ will not sacrifice looks in favor of green emissions. The company declared on their official website that the aim of the new model is to combine good looks with aero dynamicity and green power.
The first sketch gave Hyundai fans an idea of how the new hybrid car will look, at least on the outside. Judging by these images, the alternative fuel did not affect the looks of the car; on the contrary, the vehicle is just as aerodynamic as the non-electrical ones. The front and back sides of the car have not been revealed yet, so we can’t make any assumptions on the form of the headlights.
The only thing we can say though is that the C-shaped LED daytime lights preserve the same form as the previous models. Similarly, the foglights bear similarities with past models, but we cannot say whether there will be a hexagonal grille as well or not.
Hyundai has further revealed a small portion of the car’s interior design. There aren’t much to say on the interior of the car. The design looks rather simplistic with just a steering wheel and an infotainment control on the center of the dashboard.
Control buttons were placed on the transmission tunnel in keeping with the design of the Porsche 911. The image has further revealed that the ambient light will be blue with no information on its customization variants.
The interior is expected to differ, depending on buyers’ preferences. So will the prices that customers will have to pay for the new IONIQ hybrid. Every additional option will come with a new fee that buyers will have to pay.
Hyundai’s IONIQ vehicle is truly unique because it is the first to introduce three types of electric power. Users will have three variants to choose from: pure electric car, regular hybrid and plug-in hybrid. The company will release more technical details on the car once the launching date grows near. Fans will have to wait until the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016, the date when the car will be officially introduced on the market.
