Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Launched In Malaysia - From RM103,390

About a month after Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) opened the order books for its first ever hybrid model in Malaysia; the Ioniq, the car was officially unveiled today, available in two variants.

  • Ioniq HEV: RM103,390
  • Ioniq  HEV Plus: RM114,165

*Prices indicated are OTR with insurance

Powered by Hyundai’s 1.6-litre four-cylinder GDI Kappa engine and a 44PS electric motor, the car, which is a full hybrid like the Toyota Prius, produces a total output of 141PS and 265Nm of maximum torque. Drive is sent to the front wheels via a 6-speed automatic dual clutch transmission, while the electric motor is powered by a lithium-ion polymer traction battery.

Thanks to the powertrain package, claimed fuel consumption readings stand at 25.6 km/l.

Built on a new and dedicated platform, the base model Ioniq HEV boasts of a rather extensive list of standard features:

  • Seven-airbags
  • ABS with Brake Assist
  • Hill Start Assist Control
  • Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
  • Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)
  • LED Daytime Running Lights
  • 60:40 split folding rear seats
  • Steering wheel audio control
  • Keyless entry and go
  • Cruise control
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Park assist
  • Rear view camera
  • Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Black Glossy radiator grille
  • Halogen projector headlamps
  • Bulb-type rear combination lights
  • Fabric seats
  • 4.2-inch TFT LCD Supervision cluster
  • Audio system with 5-inch LCD touch screen

The range-topping HEV Plus gets even more additional goodies like:

  • Chrome radiator grille
  • HID Bi-xenon headlamps
  • LED Positioning lamps
  • LED Rear lamps
  • Leather seats
  • 8-way adjustable driver's seat with 2-way lumbar support
  • 7-inch HD TFT-LCD Digital Cluster
  • Electro-chromic rear-view mirror
  • Audio system with 7-inch LCD touch screen
  • Automatic wiper
  • Wireless charging for smartphones
  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking System
  • Smart Cruise Control System
  • Rain sensor

Measuring 4,470mm long, 1,820mm wide, and 1,450mm tall with a wheelbase length of 2,700mm, the Ioniq is similar in size to most C-segment sedans in the market. It is also worth mentioning that the car’s body is built with 53.5% advanced high-strength steel and lightweight aluminium.

First previewed to Malaysians in My Auto Fest 2016 held at MINES Convention Centre in May, the Ioniq is locally-assembled at the Sime-Darby Motors plant in Kulim, Kedah. Being a locally-assembled hybrid, it qualifies for tax incentives for locally assembled Energy Efficient Vehicles (EEVs). It also comes with an 8-year warranty for the traction (hybrid) battery, while the vehicle itself is covered by a 5-year/300,000km manufacturer's warranty. HSDM also added that once the lithium-ion battery's 8-year warranty period is over, the replacement battery cost only less than RM10,000 should it need a replacement.

And then, there is the 3-years/60,000km free service programme which includes parts, labour, as well as engine oil. Last but not least, the Ioniq is also offered with a 3-years Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) insurance - Should the car be declared as 'total-loss' within three years of ownership due to any unwanted incident, customers will be reimbursed fully (100% value of the car).  

First introduced in March of this year at the Geneva Motor Show, Hyundai's Ioniq is the world’s first vehicle to offer three distinct electrified powertrains on a single, dedicated vehicle platform. The Ioniq is available in other markets such as North America as either an all-electric, hybrid or plug-in hybrid vehicle.
