What's a Plug-in Hybrid?

The 2021 Hyundai IONIQ is available as a hybrid, electric, and plug-in hybrid hatchback. What's the difference?

A hybrid car is a gasoline-fueled vehicle. Gasoline powers its electric motor and standard gas engine. The two units work together to create an efficient drive.

An electric vehicle (EV) uses a large battery to generate its driving power. A zero-emissions vehicle, an EV can be charged at home or a fast-charging station.

The 2021 Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid merges these two designs. The plug-in hatchback has a larger battery than a hybrid. You can charge the vehicle at home and opt to use either gas or electricity while you drive. This provides drivers with the option to create a zero-emissions experience.

Driving far? Just flip the switch to use the hybrid drivetrain when the battery begins to run low.

Driving Efficiently

The versatility of a plug-in hybrid is a valuable trait for efficiency-minded drivers who frequently embark on long road trips.

With a combined gas and battery range that reaches an EPA-estimated 620 miles, you'll be able to drive the length of the Erie Canal (with miles to spare).¹

  • 7-hour full charge time
  • EPA-estimated 29-mile all-electric range¹
  • Regenerative braking

If you plug in the IONIQ at home, you can reach a full charge in less than seven hours. This empowers the vehicle to drive up to an EPA-estimated 29 miles with an all-electric charge

Hitting the brakes creates electricity. Regenerative brakes convert the mechanical energy of the braking process into electricity. This is transferred to the 2021 IONIQ Plug-in battery to create additional electricity.

Difference-Making Technology

The IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid's technology electrifies your driving experience, too. Let's take a peek at the available technology inside the hatchback:

  • 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation system
  • Harman Kardon® Premium Audio
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™
  • Wireless device charging

An available 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation system makes it easy to access accurate route guidance. Drivers who take long road trips throughout the Empire State will be able to follow a crisp route home with Hyundai navigation.

If you are looking to stay in touch with your contacts while you head out on a road trip, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are standard in every trim of this hatchback. You can also listen to playlists and catch up on podcasts with this wireless feature.
