Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Will be available as an EV, plug-in hybrid, and petrol-electric hybrid.

Hyundai has released two design sketches of the Hyundai Ioniq, which reveals the exterior and interior designs. It will make its world debut in Korea in January 2016, before being showcased at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March 2016.

Hyundai claims that the Toyota Prius rival will offer class-leading aerodynamics, thanks to the slippery notchback body-style and active aero features like flaps integrated in the hexagonal grille to direct airflow over the car.

The interior of the Ioniq is inline with Hyundai’s current design language. As seen in spyshots, the interior adopts a simple, no frills design that combines “efficient use of interior space and a clear, logical approach that is applied to the layout of control functions”. Apparently, the materials used to trim the cabin are eco-friendly, so as to highlight the car’s nature.

Based on an all new platform, the Hyundai Ioniq will be available as an EV, plug-in hybrid, and petrol-electric hybrid. Reports suggest that the petrol-electric hybrid will be powered by a 1.6-liter GDI petrol Atkinson cycle engine that the company recently unveiled, which produces 77 kW (103 hp) of power and 147 Nm of torque.
