Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors unveils Hyundai’s IONIQ hybrid

The new IONIQ is fitted with a 1.6 liter engine that produces 105 HP, while its electric motor generates 88 kilowatts equivalent to 120 HP, with maximum torque of 295 n/m.
Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors Company (MYNM), Hyundai dealer in the Western region of Saudi Arabia, unveiled the first hybrid of Hyundai model “IONIQ” at the Saudi International Motor Show in Jeddah.
The show’s visitors had the opportunity to look at the first sophisticated hybrid electric smart car by Hyundai, which aims at contributing to a cleaner environment and reduce energy consumption. By introducing this new eco-friendly car, Hyundai stepped forward in its endeavor toward using alternative energy. The new hybrid IONIQ will be offered in three different variants.
Khalid Alharthy, national marketing operations and PR manager at MYNM-Hyundai, said at the launch of “IONIQ” that it is time to move forward in the automotive industry, and the IONIQ from Hyundai is the first step toward future intelligent driving. He said that while the company keeps up with modern development in automotive production on one hand, it meets the aspirations and requirements of the new generation of customers on the other hand.
The new IONIQ benefits also from three “clean” driving systems: The hybrid propulsion (an internal combustion engine with an electric motor), full electric propulsion and rechargeable hybrid engine (plugin hybrid), which will be available soon. With the IONIQ, MYNM-Hyundai offers its customers a variety of options including fuel-economy and eco-friendly cars.
The new IONIQ is fitted with a 1.6 liter engine that produces 105 HP, while its electric motor generates 88 kilowatts equivalent to 120 HP, with maximum torque of 295 n/m. The engine is fed by lithium-ion battery of 28 kWh that can drive up to 280 km in normal driving conditions, and more than 200 km in various driving conditions, at a maximum speed of 165 km/h. The Hyundai IONIQ electrical car accelerates from zero to 100 km/h, in sports driving mode, in less than 10 seconds.
