What a big difference a small electric motor makes when working in tandem with a
traditional combustion engine. Add to this mix our dedication to technological progress
and it all adds up to a ground-breaking range of hybrid cars for you.
Help protect air quality with the support of the electric motor.
Travel further for less with all three clever hybrid powertrains.
Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid awarded What Car? Best Hybrid 2019.
The primary difference between the three types of hybrids available is that each is
supported by their electric motors to different degrees. This will influence fuel
economy and level of emissions.
Primarily powered by a combustion engine, with electric support.
The petrol engine and electric motor work in unison for enhanced performance.
Flexible recharging options allow you to travel further on just the electric motor.
The 48V Hybrid will feel like a normal combustion engine powered car, however it is able to run on electric when decelerating or whilst stopped - conserving fuel at regular intervals on your daily drive. It’s an enhancement over traditional start & stop technology as it is able to switch to electric before the car comes to a complete stop, and then assist the engine when accelerating. Fast and smooth engine restarts make it perfect for city traffic.
An electric motor provides a boost to the petrol engine during acceleration and can even power the car completely in certain situations such as cruising at a constant speed. The battery doesn’t need to be charged from a mains supply; it is instead charged by regenerative braking when the vehicle decelerates.
A Plug-in Hybrid has a much larger battery capacity that can be charged using an external power source such as a home charging point or public charging station. The combined petrol engine and large capacity battery gives a much greater driving range than a normal hybrid. It also allows you to travel using solely the electric motor for zero emission driving.
Whichever type of hybrid you feel is right for you, the one thing that connects them
all is our forward looking commitment to efficiency, style and engineering.
Aesthetics and effectiveness combine to deliver a profile that minimises drag.
Our hybrids feature a 6-speed DCT (dual clutch transmission).
Advanced design and technology working together to protect your wellbeing.
Get on the road to the new generation of hybrid power with the bold Tucson 48V Hybrid, available with a highly efficient range of CRDi diesel engines supported by a lithium-ion polymer battery pack. Power outputs of 115 PS, 136 PS or 185 PS, as well as 4WD on selected trim levels, give you assured SUV performance.
The award-winning IONIQ Hybrid makes your move from conventional engine driving to an electrified life that much easier with its 1.6 litre GDi petrol engine and 1.56 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery, delivering a combined output of 141 PS.
Step in to our stylish SUV and feel the power of our state-of-the-art hybrid technology. It fuses our specially-calibrated 1.6 litre GDi petrol engine with a 1.56 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery for superior efficiency and 141 PS combined power output.
Lead the charge with the flexible IONIQ Plug-In Hybrid, combining an 8.9 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery, a 44.5 kW electric motor and 1.6 litre GDi petrol engine. Combined output is 141 PS, with the ability to charge from a mains supply for extended driving range.
Hybrid vehicles are also covered by our comprehensive 5 year unlimited mileage warranty, available for customers when sold by the authorised Hyundai network in Europe. For full details of the 5 year warranty, as well as our high voltage battery warranty, please visit; https://www.hyundai.co.uk/misc-pages/5_year_warranty
There are a number of factors that could influence when the petrol engine starts including the speed of acceleration, number of passengers, load on the battery, and remaining battery charge. Hybrid vehicles will utilise the battery whenever it is most efficient to do so thanks to ECO-DAS technology, and there isn’t a set speed in which the petrol engine will become the main power supply. With the IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid it is possible to run solely on full electric mode for up to 39 miles due to the larger capacity battery.
Whilst the hybrid is able to run on electric power for short time periods as it is designed primarily to assist the combustion engine, it’s only the Plug-in Hybrid that can sustain a longer distance in electric mode only. Thanks to the larger capacity battery the IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid can travel up to 39 miles from a full charge.
Every Hyundai is built with consideration for what happens at the end of its life. Hyundai Motor UK Ltd have partnered with Umicore Battery Recycling to facilitate the recycling process of high voltage batteries used in our Hybrid models.
