HybridCars.com reports that the hybrid and all-electric versions of the new Hyundai Ioniq will launch this week in the US, with the plug-in hybrid version being released in September. A marketing campaign is expected to begin in March.
The Ioniq’s high fuel economy – 58 mpg – is better than the Toyota Prius.
The Ioniq vehicle lineup is central to the Korean automaker’s plans to roll out several new green vehicle offerings in the coming years. By 2020, Hyundai will have five hybrids, four plug-in hybrids, four all-electric, and one fuel-cell vehicle on the market.
