The new Hyundai Ioniq facelift might share its powertrain with the Kona electric SUV.
Hyundai plans to introduce its full range of electric vehicles in India and challenge Maruti Suzuki that has also announced to bring in EVs by 2020. The Hyundai Kona will be the first electric vehicle from the South Korean auto major that’s scheduled to go on sale in the second half of 2019. Besides this, the company might also introduce the Ioniq electric model sometime next year.
Recently, the new Hyundai Ioniq facelift caught on camera in South Korea. The semi-camouflaged prototype features a new grille, updated bumper, revised LED headlamps and LED fog lamp assembly along with cornering lamps at the front end.
Save for the alloy wheels, the side profile will remain largely unchanged. At the back, the electric vehicle will get new LED taillamps and revised bumper. While interior details are yet to be revealed, it is likely to get new dashboard design, updated instrument cluster along with a range of new comfort and safety features.
