Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Powertrain Revealed

Posted by: Lydia Siu onJanuary 8th, 2016


Hyundai has finally released images of the much talked about Ioniq along with specifications for its engine. The Korean hybrid will use a traditional hybrid motor that produces approximately 150hp. The power comes from a 1.6L Kappa GDI engine which produces 104hp from gas and an additional 43hp supplied by an electric motor. Hyundai will be mating the engine to a dual-clutch transmission which further helps promote fuel economy.

Additional weight savings is found by a generous amount of aluminum being used around the car such as the hood and trunk. The lithium-ion battery will be placed as low as possible to promote better handling and weight distribution, again helping to boost fuel economy.

Judging by Hyundai’s recently released specification and images, the Ioniq Hybrid will be quite the contender for Toyota’s Prius.
