With a promised range of nearly 700 miles, this is the excellent new Hyundai Ioniq hybrid which also delivers nearly 40 miles of pure electric driving.
The eco hatchback is packed with equipment and, to help attract buyers, it’s possible to have a 7 kW charging point installed for £300 – it can also be recharged with a standard three pin plug when there are no charging points available.
The vehicle was first unveiled at the Geneva motor show and with it now available in showrooms, this is the third and last variant for the Ioniq line-up.

Effectively, the overall power output is 141 PS with incredibly low emissions of just 26g/km.
