Hyundai unveils the updated 2020 Ioniq car lineup. There are three distinct versions of the car as before, but the capability and driving range increase along with the starting price.
2020 Hyundai Ioniq
It all starts with the Ioniq Hybrid that uses an 1.6-liter gasoline engine in combination with an electric motor (32 kW) and a small capacity battery. The refreshed Hybrid starts at $23,000, which is a small increase when compared to the 2019 model.
Next up is the Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid. This car uses a larger 8.9 kWh battery pack combined with an electric motor and the same 1.6-liter gas engine. The plug-in is capable of driving about 29 miles on electricity alone. This model starts at $26,300.
The biggest news is the updated Ioniq EV all-electric car with more power, bigger battery, and much longer driving range. This EV now packs 134 horsepower, a 38.3 kWh battery, and up to 170 miles of range on a single charge. The charger has been upgraded as well to allow an 80% charge in under 54 minutes – according to Hyundai.
These are very competitive specs when compared to other current competitors such as the VW eGolf.
The 2020 Ioniq EV pricing has not yet been announced. The exact on sale date for the new Ioniq EV has not yet been communicated.
