Hyundai has announced pricing for the new Ioniq plug-in hybrid, starting at £24,995 for a Premium 1.6 GDi model.
Available from 70 Hyundai dealerships from July 13, the plug-in hybrid is the third and final variant of the Ioniq line-up and benefits from the government's £2,500 plug-in car grant and will be available in Premium and Premium SE specifications.
Offering up to 39 miles of pure electric driving with a claimed total range of 680 miles, it combines a 105PS 1.6-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine and a 61PS high-efficiency electric motor to deliver a combined system output of 141PS, driven through a six-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT).
Hyundai Motor UK previously named POD Point as its preferred charging partner, and a 7kW wall box can be supplied and installed at the customer’s home for £300, which includes standard installation.
The plug-in hybrid is available as standard with the Type 2 connector and an ICCB Charging Cable which allows the car to be plugged in to a domestic three-pin outlet when no dedicated charging points are available.
Ultra-low CO2 emissions of just 26g/km means it attracts zero-rate VED in the first year and offers a low BIK rate of just 9% for 2017/18.
Hyundai Motor UK’s president and chief executive Tony Whitehorn said: “This is an exciting addition to our electrified line-up. With up to 39 miles of electric-only power there is more than sufficient range for zero-emission daily commutes, as well as the reassurance of longer range from the hybrid powertrain when needed.
"We anticipate keen interest from private buyers and fleet users alike, given the Plug-in Hybrid’s great value pricing and low tax rates.
“With CO2 emissions of just 26g/km, Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid is another milestone in extending the company’s product range of low-to-zero emission vehicles, which is central to our sustainability strategy.”
