Each year, most carmakers introduce a new take or spin on an established vehicles. However, it is rare to find a new car that is truly “new.” That’s why everyone at Mississauga Hyundai is excited about the all-new 2017 Hyundai IONIQ EV. This breakthrough in electric vehicle technology, which is available in three trim levels, could only come from the innovators at Hyundai. Let’s take a closer look at why we think the 2017 Hyundai IONIQ EV will forever change the way you see EVs.

Performance

At the heart of the 2017 Hyundai IONIQ EV is the class-exclusive 360-volt, 28.0 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery that is located low in the IONIQ’s purpose-built chassis, which also lowers its centre of gravity. The Interior-Permanent Magnet Synchronous 88 kW electric motor produces 118 net horsepower and 215 lb.-ft. of torque, while the single-speed Reduction Gear transmission with three drive modes (Normal, Eco, and Sports) helps you get a combine 1.7 Le per 100km and up to 200 km of emissions-free driving. As far as charging the 2017 Hyundai IONIQ EV, there are three levels:

  • Standard 120V household outlet/24 hours
  • Available household outlet 240V outlet/4.5 hours
  • Public 450V outlet/35 minutes

With all this efficiency, you also get a smooth ride thanks to the front MacPherson strut, the rear coupled torsion beam axle, column-mounted motor-driven rack-and-pinion, power steering, and 16-inch Eco alloy wheels with P205/55R16 Michelin LRRC tires.

Safety

Having all this efficiency is great, but without safety, there is no reason to drive a car. The 2017 Hyundai IONIQ EV is packed with the most advanced safety features. There is a seven-airbag system that includes a driver’s knee, front impact, front seat-mounted side impact, and front/rear side curtain airbags. Drivers and passengers will also appreciate a number of different control and safety systems such as:

  • Vehicle Stability Management
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Traction Control System
  • Anti-lock Braking System
  • Rearview camera with dynamic guidelines
  • Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection

Technology and Comfort

For all the cutting-edge technology under-the-hood, the 2017 Hyundai IONIQ EV is also exceptionally advanced inside the cabin. Depending on the trim level, drivers can expect:

  • Bluetooth hands-free system
  • iPod/USB auxiliary connectivity
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity
  • 8.0-inch high-resolution touch-screen navigation system
  • 7.0-inch TFT LCD “Supervision” instrument panel display with multi-function trip computer
  • Electrochromic auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated HomeLink® transceiver and compass

The final piece of the puzzle is the unrivaled level of comfort available in the 2017 Hyundai IONIQ EV. Drivers and passengers are surrounded by luxury that includes a Integrated Memory System for seat and side mirror positions, eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with adjustable lumbar support, 60/40 split-fold rear seats, heated front seats, available leather seating surfaces, and even heated rear seats. Once you drive or ride in the 2017 Hyundai IONIQ EV, we firmly believe that you’ll forever be spoiled.
