The Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid Car


Take note that the Ioniq comes in three electrified fuel configurations. If you want to travel only using an electric mode, the pure Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) is the right fit. If you want to be able to use a gasoline powered engine as a reserve, the Ioniq plug-in hybrid (PHEV) is the best match. If you are considering a hybrid, make sure to purchase the plug-in hybrid as the “Ioniq Hybrid” does not allow for charging outside of what the petroleum powered engine charges, which doesn’t save much use of gasoline.

Exterior Style

At first glance, the Electric and Hybrid models appear the same. But look a little closer and one can see the difference: the grille is sealed off in the Ioniq Electric, replaced by a glossy black panel that blends in well with the exterior design. The reasoning makes sense: the EV model has no radiator because there’s no engine. All Ioniq models have a have a flat roofline that was designed to get maximum aerodynamics.

Interior Space

The Ioniq interior is fairly roomy for a compact vehicle, offering both solid head and leg space up front, where it’s capable of accommodating people of all sizes. Yet the same can’t be said for the back seat where three people is definitely a crowd. The cargo area measures 23.8 cubic feet and the 60/40 rear seats fold down nearly flat, greatly enhancing the hauling capability.

The interior layout is smartly designed and most people will enjoy the intuitive controls and the overall technology. The Base model comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.


All Ioniq models deliver solid handling, accurate steering and maneuver well in tight spaces. Unlike the Hybrid model, the Ioniq EV doesn’t have a sport mode that enhances the driving experience.
