The Hyundai Motor Company has always been a steady player in the race of offering eco-friendly cars. This Korean auto brand has revealed its plan to have not less than ten electrified and eco-friendly cars in its lineup before the end of the 2022 calendar year. Out of these 10, 7 are expected to be SUVs. The vast improvement in the lineup will include a blend of hybrids, plug-in hybrids, hydrogen fuel-cell, and battery-electric vehicles. While some of these cars will come merely as an addition to existing nameplates, some would be entirely all-new names.
Hyundai official disclosed that it is currently working on more electrified offerings. To be more precise, the Korean automaker is searching for the best means of utilizing the wonders of fully electric—battery technology or hybrid drivetrains for its new line of products. Best believe this will make leasing a Hyundai EV more fun and rewarding.
It’s no news that Hyundai has released some fully electric cars. But besides the Kona EV and the Ioniq 5, Hyundai is set to add new models to its fresh EV portfolio, including an Ioniq 6 sedan, an electrified version of the 1986 Grandeur, and a third Ioniq, known as Ioniq 7 (still a concept car).
Instead of the four-cylinder gas-powered engine of the regular Kona, Hyundai has stacked the subcompact Kona SUV with a 201-hp electric motor and a 64.0-kWh battery pack that delivers an impressive 258 miles per charge. The Kona EV offers everything there’s to like about the gas-powered Kona but gets electric tweaks. Besides its exciting driving range for a small SUV, the Kona EV affords quick acceleration, nimble handling, and Hyundai’s trademark of superior warranty and impressive technology.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 stands as the beginning of the Hyundai’s all-new all-electric sub-brand, Ioniq. The all-new all-electric Ioniq 5 compact crossover SUV boasts futuristic styling, tech-inclined interior design, and ample passenger space. This Hyundai’s first full BEV is built on an 800-volt architecture that helps it get an estimated driving range of 258 to 290 miles per charge. According to Hyundai, the Ioniq 5 will usher in a total of 23 battery electric vehicles by the end of 2025. Already, the Ioniq 5 is joined by two all-new BEVs, namely Ioniq 6 and Ioniq 7.
Closely following the recently revealed Hyundai Ioniq 5 is the Ioniq 6, a four-door luxury coupe built on the new E-GMP architecture, just like the Ioniq 5. About a year ago, Hyundai teased us with the stunning Hyundai Prophecy concept. This time around, the slick Porsche-like Hyundai sports sedan is set to move from a concept to production, and it comes as a pure electric car.
While Hyundai is keeping mum about the Ioniq 6, this sporty luxury sedan BEV will likely come with a 76.2 kWh battery or bigger battery car and a driving range as high as 435 miles per charge.
During the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, Hyundai revealed a new EV concept. This all-new EV concept from Hyundai shows how Hyundai is working on stretching its EV platform to accommodate large luxury SUVs. The Hyundai Seven concept, built on the E-GM platform, will have over 300 miles of driving range and use 350kW capacity chargers. It could be the next Ioniq. However, this Hyundai Seven is still a concept car, but we hope it gets into production, which we can all agree that Hyundai is quite capable of.
Earlier this year, Hyundai unveiled a Heritage Series concept. The Korean auto brand unveiled an EV version of the resurrected 1980s Grandeur flagship sedan a few weeks ago. While still retaining its iconic design cues, this luxury sedan now incorporates the styling elements of EVs under the Ioniq Hyundai subbrand.
