Hyundai’s stealthy i-oniq concept hybrid has been uncloaked, and the vision tantalizes the ocular receptors. With a design that suggests a three-way love triangle between a Fisker Karma, Tesla Model S and Porsche Cayenne, the Hyundai i-oniq is indubitably a futuristic display of sex on wheels.
Although brute in external appearance, the Hyundai i-oniq is rumored to be fairly docile under the hood with a 1.0-liter three-cylinder gas engine and 108-hp electric motor. The battery capacity of Hyundai’s new enigma is unknown, though the Korean car manufacturer claims that the i-oniq will be able to travel up to 75 miles on its Lithium-ion-powered motor alone before falling back on the old-school combustion engine. At the end of the day, that equates to a 435-mile combined range.
With a 173.2-inch long measurement, the Hyundai i-oniq is buddies with the Ford Focus, which is just a foot and a half shorter. If Hyundai plans on using a majority of its design blueprints for a potential mass-production iteration of the i-oniq, the car will certainly bring a much needed swagger and zest to the hybrid and EV markets. What do you think of the Hyundai i-oniq concept?
