Starting from RM100,328 for the base HEV variant, the 2016 Hyundai Ioniq hybrid appears to represent great value. Locally assembled by Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors at its Inokom plant in Kulim, Kedah, the Hyundai Ioniq HEV is joined by the HEV Plus, at RM110,328 (prices are OTR, without insurance).
The Ioniq is powered by a 1.6 litre Kappa GDI four-cylinder Atkinson cycle direct injection engine, which produces 105 PS at 5,700 rpm and 147 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. This is mated with a six-speed dry clutch transmission and a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor, which provides 44 PS and 170 Nm, culminating in a total system output of 141 PS and 265 Nm.
In Malaysia, the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid gets the full safety suite, including AEB, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitor as well as Smart Cruise Control in its top-spec RM111k HEV Plus guise. However, even the base RM100k HEV model gets seven airbags and electronic stability control as standard. In fully loaded guise, the Hyundai Ioniq has scored the full five-star Euro NCAP rating.
Concerned about the traction battery? Fear not, for Hyundai has it covered with an eight-year, unlimited mileage warranty, and should it require replacement after that period, it’s been guaranteed to cost less than RM10,000.
As part of an introductory offer, Ioniq customers will also benefit from a three-year or 60,000 km free service package, three-year guaranteed automotive protection (GAP) insurance coverage and interest rate from as low as 2.28%.
