Review: Hyundai Electric IONIQ

Hyundai Ioniq is available in versions Electric and Hybrid, this year has come even variant plug-in hybrid. Look at the test elektromobiu Ioniq Electric.


At ratios of the electric car Ioniq relatively inconspicuous. In a variant Electric attracts mostly full implementation of the masks in gray. In the rear are distinctive tailgate with two windows broken spoiler. Air drag coefficient is only 0.24. It is interesting that even a small radiator opening is closable. To save weight, aluminum is used, it is used on the hood, the front beam and the rear door. The discs have an aerodynamic shape (due to the large use of regenerative braking is not such a need to cool the brakes) and on those tires shod with low rolling resistance tires in size 205/55 R16.

The interior

The front seats are electrically adjustable, heated and ventilated. The driver’s seat allows easy access when you open the door pushes back. Leather steering wheel is comfortable in the hand, can be adjusted vertically and horizontally. The chapel is a pure instrument displays, and is divided into 5 parts: an indicator of energy consumption of the lights, speedometer, trip computer and battery status indicator. Print speed varies according to the selected mode, normal / sport / eco. For example, in Sport mode also shows the next speed load.
Infotainment is the same as in other models Hyundai / Kia, in this case supplemented with the function for the electric car. Climate control is cleverly solved mechanical buttons and knobs. A useful feature is the Only Driver to not cooled or nevytápělo whole car. Is swiftly heating solutions telepnému pump through the heat recovery is not reduced range of a conventional heating eletrického.
Instead gear lever there are four buttons (forward, reverse, neutral, parking). The parking brake is electrical. Right next door is a place for wireless phone charger standard QI, is solved in an unconventional portrait phone is so handy and fits in there even bigger 5.5 “phone.
Rear passengers have ample leg space, the worse it is with space for your head, because soon sloping roof it is not much. The rear seats are also heated, are split 60:40 and can be folded flat. The trunk has a volume of 350 liters with the seats folded 1,410 liters. Under the floor is only a small space on a mandatory equipment, the remainder of the space the battery.

Engine and driving

The motor is a synchronous permanent magnet efficiency reaches 95%. Maximum power is 120 hp and torque of 295 Nm. Thanks to the available torque from low revs is a response to the accelerator accelerator very good. Regime change on the sport was even livelier response, while lukewarm in eco mode. Consumption is mostly ranged between 12 and 13 kWh per 100 km. Lithium-ion polymer battery with a capacity of 28 kWh is located under the rear seats and the luggage compartment. 280 km of the declared finish is reached, the real maximum range is 250 km, it is for most applications is quite sufficient. Battery warranty is 8 years or 200,000 km.
charge is possible in three ways:

1) of the adapter from the household outlet power 2.3 kW to reach full capacity at 14 hours .
2) The standard Mennekes should go take advantage of the full power of 6.6 kW on-board charger. Realistically, however, power was 4.7 kW (uses only one stage), and a full charge lasts 6.5 hours .
3) DC quick charger standard CCS to 80% in the variant with a 100 kW reached already after 24 minutes in common then to 50 kW for 30 minutes. DC fast charging option is with the system pre-heating batteries and heat pumps included in the packet Efficiency. Future in equipment worth CZK 60 000, equipped Ultimate is included.
Ioniq is very quiet, because security is up to 30 kilometers per hour generated an artificial engine sound, and this can be switched off and at low speeds the car is nearly silent. At higher speeds it is noise from the chassis and the aerodynamic noise is higher when driving 50 kilometers per hour after koččičích heads noise level is 55 db, on the highway at 130 km / h followed by 60 dB.
The car is equipped with all conceivable assistants for safer and more comfortable ride as: assistant for driving in the lane, blind spot monitoring, autonomous emergency braking, intelligent, adaptive cruise control. I really like adaptive cruise control works to a standstill and myself will be started when the stand longer just zmáčkout cruise button or accelerator pedal.


This is a car built from the ground up as a hybrid or electric car, because we managed to keep such a good energy consumption and range. As nice to see modest appearance, without needlessly significant elements often vídaných other hybrids or electric cars. With a real roll-out across 200 kilometers is seamlessly usable for most users, especially in combination with rapid.


+ 5-year warranty without limitation raid


+ Operating costs
