Hyundai will begin selling its gasoline-electric hybrid and battery-electric 2017 Ioniq models by April 1, and offer its plug-in hybrid Ioniq by Sept. 1, the automaker has announced.
Hyundai made the announcement on Jan. 26 at the Washington Auto Show in Washington, D.C., where it showed the three models, along with the Ioniq Land Speed Record vehicle that reached 157 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah in September.
Hyundai is hoping its Ioniq Hybrid, Ioniq Electric, and Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid will bring the automaker a new group of eco-friendly and efficiency-oriented buyers. Hyundai is also viewing the platform as a platform for developing autonomous driving features.
