The new and improved IONIQ Plug-In Hybrid seamlessly merges the advantages of a petrol engine with a rechargeable, electric powertrain, to deliver driving experiences that are simultaneously dynamic and sustainable. It's the best of both worlds, for today and tomorrow.
This brilliant suite of safety technologies alerts you to potential dangers around you, and helps you avoid them. The Premium variant includes Lane Following Assist (LFA) which, when activated, will help keep you safely centred in your lane at speeds of up to 150km/h. And Smart Cruise Control, which detects the speed and distance of the vehicles ahead of you and maintains a safe distance from them.

Simply switch between HEV (Hybrid) and EV (Electric) modes via the drive mode switch. By default, the Plug-in runs in EV mode, and is powered entirely by the electric motor. And when additional power is required, such as to provide heating during start-up, when driving up steep hills and under hard acceleration, the system will temporarily switch to HEV (Hybrid) mode.
HEV (Hybrid) mode is automatically activated when the high-voltage battery is depleted, or when manual mode (Sport drive mode) is selected via the gear lever or paddle shifters.
