Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid Joins The Family From $24,950

Hyundai is gunning for the Toyota Prius with its new Ioniq, and it’s doing so with a more varied range of powertrain options.

Already offered in standard hybrid and all-electric variants, the Korean automaker is now rolling out its dedicated electrified vehicle as a plug-in hybrid as well.

The PHEV packs the same 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine as the plug-less version, Rated at 104 horsepower, it comes mated to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and paired with an electric motor good for another 60 hp or so – a significant increase over the existing hybrid’s 43-hp electric motor.

Exact specifications are apparently still to be confirmed, but Hyundai has already released pricing and energy ratings for the US market. The Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid starts at $24,950 and peaks at $28,300 for the Limited version. (For reference, the standard Ioniq Hybrid started the 2017 model year at $22,200, and the Ioniq Electric at $29,500.)

Regardless of trim level, buyers can expect 29 miles of all-electric range, 650 miles of combined range, and EPA-estimated ratings of 52 miles per gallon (using both motors) and 119 MPGe on electric power alone.
