Hyundai Ioniq hybrid 2018 Infotainment review | Mat Watson Reviews l 2018 New car

20-18 hyundai ioniq plug-in hybrid the 2018 hyundai ioniq plug-in hybrid was fully charged and eco mode was selected pulling out onto a busy boulevard we suppress the urge to floor the accelerator instead dipping maybe halfway into the pedals travel and the engine fired up clearly hyundai’s dedicated eco warrior doesn’t behave like the chevrolet volt and the toyota

Prius prime which launched their capability to drive without tail type emissions keeping their gasoline engines shut up as much as possible it was an unexpected first impression what is the sound of a hybrid running this observation underscores that plug-in hybrids are in belleville to the same formula jerrod and malcolm’s products of a diet rich in california

Zephyr edit steroids and engineered for regulatory compliance while the bolt and the prius prime let you lock in electric mode for a distance that’s within daily commuting range for many americans the ionic plug-in hybrids powertrain operates more like that of ford’s fusion energy and c-max energi with chrysler pacifica hybrid and the hyundai sonata plug-in hybrid

The gasoline engine definitely fires up less often than in a standard hybrid but the boundaries are blurred for the ionic fun days as it depends on torque demands load and vehicle speed and even the rate at which you depress the accelerator provided you’re ok with that concept this is a very pleasant driving car that applies the charge you put in the batteries

Aren’t getting as many miles as possible out of what is in the fuel tank just as in the hyundai ioniq hybrid the plugin has a 104 hp 1.6 liter atkinson cycle in line for that claims 40% thermal efficiency there’s a lightweight low friction six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox with an electric motor affixed to the transmissions and put in a computer-controlled

Clutch bringing the engine into or out of the mix what’s different is that in place of the hybrids 1.6 – kwh battery pack the pea hev has a larger rate that 9 – kwh version that can be fully charged in just 2.5 hours with level 2 240 volts hardware enabling what hyundai anticipates to be 27 miles of all-electric range keeping a light foot on the throttle we saw a

Long stretches of 70 mph cruising using only battery power a 60 hp electric motor replaces the hybrids 43 hp unit to enable that wider band of electric operation more mainstream less geeky the powertrain far out as most other hybrids for charm in part because as you accelerate and the engine joins then you hear good life the firming zoomy sounds it revs rising and

Gears changing although there’s an undercurrent of efficiency machinations happening behind the scenes the plug-in hybrid drives like a noun hybrid car when the engine is running it also skips the interface salinas the gauge cluster is one of the most straightforward you’ll find in a hybrid and just a couple of driving mode choices if you want to save some battery

Charge for later if there’s an hev mode that runs the gasoline engine a lot more as though the charge were depleted other than that pulling the shift lever over to the left engages sport mode which weights up the steering gives you a tachometer in the cluster and runs the gasoline engine more if not quite all the time fun day notes however that the steering ride

And hybrid system calibrations we experienced could change by the time this model goes on sale this fall the one thing hyundai’s first sonata plug-in hybrid had that this model isn’t is a charge restoring mode that uses the gasoline engine to recharge the plug-in portion of the battery albeit while using a great deal more fuel such modes really make sense from

An efficiency standpoint and according to mike o’brien hyundai’s us vice president of corporate and product planning the automaker found that very few people were using that mode or perhaps even knew it existed so hyundai opted to skip it here thankfully hyundai also adopted a less-is-more philosophy with regard to the exterior styling in stark contrast to the

Prius is mr. roboto sheetmetal the ioniq reaps the aerodynamic advantages of the familiar teardrop cameback profile common to all the efficiency champs and while it manages an impressive 0.24 coefficient of drag aided by grille shutters and underbody aero smoothing it couldn’t look more different from the prius the ioniq plug-in hybrid benefits from being built

On a dedicated eco vehicle platform with an aluminum hood with tape and suspension components plus packaging that keeps seating and cargo space for the most part from being compromised in order to fit both the battery pack an eleven point four gallon fuel tank inside the ionic plugin the impression is one of benign normal seat one could just as easily be in an

Elantra the front seats are little short and rear headroom can feel stairs for taller folks but hyundai has pulled off normal backseat accommodations without either the prius primes repositioned to passenger rear seating or the volt’s type middle position like the ioniq electric the plug-in likely will come with standard heated seats and through link telematics

The capability for climate preconditioning items that can lessen dependence on the traditional climate control system thereby increasing range as with many green cars the fire up the ionic plugin will want to make sure the cars reality is in alignment with their expectations those who want to plug-in to act like a fully electric car at least for short distances

Probably should look instead at the volt or the prius prime
