It seems going all-electric is the way of the future for carmakers, with Hyundai entering the fold with its impending announcement of the Ioniq, it's first all-electric vehicle.




Hyundai will unveil the Ioniq next month, but the company is going to go about the announcement a little different - offering the Ioniq in multiple versions. Not only will there be an all-electric version, but Hyundai will offer a gasoline-electric model, as well as plug-in electric hybrid options, too. Hyundai says that this is the first time that a vehicle will be sold with three different environmentally-friendly powertrain options to choose from.




The carmaker is teasing that its Ioniq vehicle features "class-leading" aerodynamics with a "coupe-like" exterior design that minimizes wind resistance. Hyundai has also added that the Ioniq is made from environmentally-friendly materials throughout the interior, that continues the "elegant and clutter-free theme". Hyundai will debut the Ioniq in Korea next month, before it will go on display at the Geneva Motor Show, and the New York Auto Show in March 2016.
