It’s tough to imagine improving upon the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, as it’s currently holding down the fort as Canada’s most fuel efficient car, but that’s exactly what Hyundai set out to do with the Ioniq Electric Plus. Improving thanks to addition by subtraction, the plug-in hybrid Ioniq Electric Plus offers similar fuel economy as its predecessor, a better combined fuel economy due to its electric engine, and the option for completely emissions-free driving! Learn more about the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric Plus, which starts as low as $32,299, from your source for the best environmentally-conscious hybrid and electric vehicles, the Hyundai Experts at Edmonton’s Go Hyundai.
The 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric Plus quite literally provides electric performance. A 45kW electric motor—larger than you’ll find in most hybrid models—gives drivers over 40 kilometres of electric-only, emissions-free driving. Factor in the Electric Plus’s quick-charging battery that can be fully charged in under 3 hours with a level 2 charger (or, longer, with a standard 120V outlet), and you’ve got a vehicle that can potentially take you to work on an overnight charge, then home while charging at work, without using a drop of gas. Longer trips are taken easily thanks to the Electric Plus’s versatile full-parallel hybrid drive system, which kicks in once the electric battery has been expended. That hybrid versatility doesn’t come at the expense of power, with a 1.6-litre Gasoline Direct Injection Hyundai engine capable of producing a stirring 164 horsepower, and 195 lb-ft of torque. The efficiency of the Ioniq Electric Plus is still highly-competitive in the segment, even when using the gasoline engine, thanks to a fuel economy of 4.5 L/100 km. This is due, in part, to a class-exclusive 6-speed Dual Clutch Transmission, giving you lively and responsive performance alongside unparalleled efficiency.
The 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric Plus doesn’t rely solely on raw power to boost its impressive performance; the plug-in hybrid’s versatility extends beyond its engine to its aerodynamic design. Active front grille air flaps open and close, regulating engine airflow for a smarter drive. A sporty front fascia and integrated air curtains over the wheel wells force air around the Electric Plus, not the other way around, so you can take flight in your Ioniq Electric Plus without worrying about turbulence. Heated side mirrors with LED side repeaters come standard, as do LED daytime running lights, improving the vehicle’s visibility inside and out, while standard 16” alloy wheels improve not only aerodynamic efficiency, but the Electric Plus’s sporty style as well.
Gone are the days of frumpy plug-in hybrid vehicles that disregard comfort and functionality for improved environmental impact; the Ioniq Electric Plus extends its functional exterior design to its interior, creating as well-rounded a sedan as you’ll find on the market. Hold winter at bay with standard heated seats alongside your heated steering wheel. Let the standard 8.0” touchscreen keep you connected to the world abroad thanks to Hyundai’s visionary BlueLink® system and standard navigation with built-in maps, or keep informed of your battery’s charge and estimated range thanks to easily accessible plug-in data. Enjoy further versatility thanks to the 60/40 split-fold rear seats, creating an abundant 650 litres of cargo space in the Electric Plus’s trunk.
Though it appeared to be an almost-mathematical impossibility, the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric Plus was able to improve upon the already impressive efficiency of the Ioniq Hybrid. Not only that, but the addition of new standard features alongside a futuristic and athletic frame makes the Ioniq Electric Plus proof that, unless self-imposed, some limits just don’t exist. So whether you’re looking to lessen your carbon footprint and enjoy an emissions-free commute, save at the pump, or save on an electric or hybrid vehicle thanks to a government rebate, visit either Southtown Hyundai or Northstar Hyundai and experience the incredible Ioniq Electric Plus.
