The i-oniq is an electric sports hatchback with a range-extending petrol engine. Hyundai stylists chose dynamic proportions to heighten the car’s aesthetic appeal and functional practicality. Its design combines gentle feature lines and muscular surface treatment, conveying both premium and sporty qualities evident in both the exterior and interior of the car. Further design elements, such as the “penthouse roof” and LED headlights earmark its modernity.
It is 4.4m long and occupants get to enjoy lounge-esque space. The i-oniq concept has an innovative powertrain that exclaims clean technology. A 1,0-liter, 3-cylinder petrol engine is mated, via a generator, to a lithium-ion electric motor that produces 81 kW. In electric-only mode, it has a range of 120 km, while with assistance from the petrol engine it can travel up to a distance of 700 km, producing just 45 g/km of CO2 in the process. This sort of car is just what the green doctor ordered.
