The company states that the Ioniq's designers adopted eco-friendly provisions to convey a warm yet futuristic ambience in its cabin. Some of the elements include a multi-functioning steering wheel, a likely touch-sensitive large screen central display, and smaller display screens in the main cluster.
However, the company is keeping its lips sealed with regards to details on the car's powertrain system. Only known information is that the electric variety of the Ioniq will be relying on a lithium-ion battery system. The hybrid and plug-in hybrid types will feature a four-cylinder 1.6-liter engine for internal combustion.
