All hail the new hybrid king. Meet the new 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid: the car that took on Toyota for the title of most fuel efficient car in America without a plug… and won. At a maximum combined estimate of 58 mpg, the Ioniq has effectively out-Priused the previous king of the hybrids.
But those are just numbers and test cycles. I wanted to know how the rest of the Ioniq measured up, so I hit the road recently in a shiny, new Limited model to find out.
I should note that the Ioniq Hybrid is not alone. It’s actually one-third of a trio of green vehicles that all use this hatchback chassis, but have different electrified power trains. In addition, there’s the Ioniq Electric and a Plug-in Hybrid. I’ve included my driving impressions for those models, as well, taken from a Hyundai driving event earlier this year.
