We like it because from Hyundai Motor Company is considering a strategy of electrification differently, rescuing the idea, of a technological model and modern, of bodywork exclusively designed by and for its electrification, which in its day already used models such as the Toyota Prius or the Nissan Leaf. We like, why not say it, because Hyundai and Kia are raising their respective lines, are well differentiated to avoid any fight fraternal. And the solution it proposes Hyundai already has a name. The Hyundai IONIQ will arrive at dealers in 2016 and will only be available with three mechanical: a hybrid, the other hybrid and plug-in and, finally, another electrical.
