- The IONIQ Hybrid, IONIQ Electric, and IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid featured at North America’s biggest motor show
- Global rollout of Hyundai’s game-changing eco-car continues.
January 12, 2016 – Hyundai Motor Company is showcasing three of its latest eco-focused models: the IONIQ Electric, IONIQ Hybrid and IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), running until 22 January.
The appearance is an important step in Hyundai’s global rollout of the IONIQ, and the carmaker’s ambitions for environmentally sustainable transport. The range has been engineered to broaden mainstream appeal of hybrid and electric vehicles.
Detroit is North America’s most important motor show, and one of the most significant industry events worldwide. Already selling strongly in Europe, the IONIQ is now arriving in its first Middle East Markets.
“IONIQ will attract an entirely new group of eco- and efficiency-oriented buyers,” said Mike Song, Hyundai’s Head of Operations for Africa and the Middle East. “With outstanding powertrain flexibility, design, connectivity, and advanced technologies, IONIQ meets the needs of a large and growing group of buyers needing a highly efficient, low-emissions vehicle without compromise to their daily lifestyles.”
The IONIQ is the first and only car in the industry to offer a choice of three electrified powertrain options within a single platform.
Hyundai Motor’s vehicle list, including specialty vehicles and feature vehicles, for the NAIAS show includes the 2017 IONIQ Electric, 2017 IONIQ Hybrid Electric Vehicle, IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle, and IONIQ Autonomous Vehicle, and the 2017 Elantra Sport, as part of a special display. Also on display are US versions of the 2017 Accent, Azera, Elantra, Elantra GT, Santa Fe Sport, Santa Fe, Sonata 2.0 T, Sonata Plug-in Hybrid, Tucson and Veloster Turbo.
