Retro Hyundai 45 electric SUV due in 2021

  Retro Hyundai 45 electric SUV due in 2021 A development model of the upcoming Hyundai 45 SUV has been spotted testingIn many respects, the final production model of the 45 is expected to look very similar to the concept, which was inspired by the 1974 Hyundai Pony Coupe concept. The square headlights and wide, slim grille feature on this model, as do the similarly boxy tail-lights. The silhouette is close to the original design, too, and the intricate alloy wheels look to have been carried over.

Hyundai announced the launch of IONIQ as its own new electric brand and confirmed three new electric cars to populate the lineup within the next four years. The Korean automaker already has the IONIQ , an electric sedan produced with three different powertrains: hybrid (HEV), plug-in hybrid

The Hyundai Ioniq hybrids don't do anything exciting, but they look and drive like regular cars , and their fuel efficiency and value make them attractive The Ioniq also looks like a normal car , which is a departure from extroverted—some would say weird-looking—alternatives such as the Toyota Prius.

Hyundai has announced that it intends to launch a new pure-electric sub-brand called Ioniq - and that it will introduce it less than a year from now, with a production version of the 45 concept.

  Hyundai i30 N 2020 UK review Suspension tweaks aim to make the Hyundai hot hatch a more usable daily driver. Do they succeed?That said, it doesn’t feel quite as busy or unforgiving over smaller ruts and bumps as a Cup-chassis-equipped Renault Mégane RS might. But equally, I’m not entirely sure that it exhibits quite the same level of willingness as its French rival to then breathe with the undulations underfoot when you up the pace and get a bit more energy flowing through its dampers. There’s a level of suppleness that perhaps wasn’t here previously, but even on a reasonably well-kept B-road, you find yourself wondering if even more leniency might not go amiss.

The Ioniq sub - brands 's first all- electric model will be the Ioniq 5 - a production version of the 45 concept. Auto Express understands that Ioniq will not become a standalone marque, as Hyundai has done with its premium sub - brand , Genesis.

The Korean manufacturer says that Ioniq will offer a “connected lifestyle experience” - which means that it will offer a higher degree of integration with smartphones and smart devices than conventional Hyundais. It’s likely that the company’s engineers will use Ioniq to roll out always-on technology, allowing cars to be updated over the air and other areas of Hyundai’s business to offer features and services on an ongoing basis.

Hyundai says the brand ’s new models will embody a design theme called Timeless Value, with vehicles’ styling based on past models. To wit, the automaker’s second new electric vehicle will be the Ioniq 6, a sedan based on the sleek Prophecy concept, which Hyunai predicts will arrive in 2022.

Hyundai has taken the unusual step of already confirming a launch date for the first model, and a naming pattern for Ioniq in general. The first car will be the Ioniq 5, a mid-sized SUV that will be, in effect, the production version of the retro-themed 45 concept that was one of the hits of last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. It will make its debut in the first few months of 2021.

Britons say 2035 deadline to switch to electric cars is too soon

  Britons say 2035 deadline to switch to electric cars is too soon A nationwide survey by the UK's motor trade body found that 44% of drivers don't think they'll be ready to run an EV in 2035, with many of them saying they can't see themselves ever owning a battery car.A nationwide survey by the UK's automotive trade body found that 44 per cent of motorists don't think they'll be ready to run a battery vehicle in 2035, many of them saying they can't see themselves ever owning one.

All three of these models will sit on a new dedicated EV platform, called E-GMP (Electric Global Modular Platform). Hyundai has not issued any details on battery sizes or the technology involved, beyond claiming that E-GMP will “enable fast charging capability and plentiful driving range”. The company says that having a bespoke EV platform will allow a more radical rethink on the car’s cabin, with greater seat adjustment and a slide-out drawer instead of a regular glovebox.

Hyundai i30 2020 UK review

  Hyundai i30 2020 UK review Mild-hybrid engines arrive as part of facelift for family hatchback. We test it in the UK for the first timeThat said, the adoption of the 48V mild-hybrid 1.0-litre engine is a definite boon, the well-integrated 16bhp starter-generator giving a little fillip of torque-fill at low speeds to give the car a bigger-hearted feel than its 998cc capacity would suggest.

The existing Ioniq model, which is available as a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid and an EV, will not fall under the umbrella of the new sub-brand. It’s therefore expected to be dropped from the line-up when the current generation runs out in about 2022. However, Hyundai will continue to sell electric versions of some of its regular models - notably the Kona Electric - alongside the more bespoke Ioniq creations.

In addition to being more integrated into their owners’ lifestyles, Ioniq models may well be, in the longer term, at the sharp end of Hyundai’s push to become a ‘mobility provider’ - although it’s believed that the current coronavirus pandemic has set back the rollout of smartphone-based car sharing by as much as a decade.
