Hyundai Motor America says it will be showcasing three new eco-focused models – the 2017 Ioniq Electric, Ioniq Hybrid and Ioniq Plug-in, in addition to prototype Ioniq Land Speed Record and Ioniq Autonomous versions – at the 2017 Washington D.C. Auto Show.
According to Hyundai, the Ioniq Hybrid and Ioniq Electric will be available to consumers in the first quarter of 2017 and the Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid will be available in the third quarter of 2017.
Notably, the automaker says that the Ioniq Land Speed Record vehicle set a record of more than 157 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah in September.
“Ioniq will attract an entirely new group of eco- and efficiency-oriented buyers in the U.S. market,” says Mike O’Brien, vice president of corporate, product and digital planning at Hyundai. “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.”
In addition to the five Ioniq vehicles, the Tucson Fuel Cell, Bisimoto-modified Santa Fe SEMA vehicle, Genesis G90, Genesis G80 Sport and NFL Santa Fe wrap will also be in the Hyundai booth, among others.
