Hyundai is all set to bring its pure electric vehicle named the Hyundai Ioniq Electric to the 2018 Auto Expo. The vehicle was unveiled in early 2016.

The Hyundai Ioniq is the first car in the world available with hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric powertrains.

The battery-powered car has no front grille, which sets it apart from the other two variants. In place of the grille, a True Gray/Shine Gray nose cone can be seen. Black grille is available optionally for all colours except Phantom Black.

Inside its LED headlamps and rear combination lamps, the vehicle has a unique pattern. A copper-coloured character line below the bumpers gives a stylish look to the car.

Blazing yellow body colour is exclusively for the zero-emmissions variant.

The electric car gets its power from an electric motor, generating 88 kW (120 PS) and 295 Nm of torque. It can do a 0-100 km/h sprint in just 9.9 seconds, while the top speed is 165 km/h.

The electric motor is powered by a 28 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery, that offers a driving range of 280 km. Full charging time using a 6.6 kW on-board charger is 4 hours 25 minutes.

A 50 kw/100 kw quick charger takes approx 30 minutes/23 minutes to charge the battery up to 80 per cent.

Hyundai will also launch the Hyundai Kona Electric in 2019 as its first pure electric model in the country.
