Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid in Malaysia: CKD, 7 airbags, from RM100k; RM111k with AEB and Smart Cruise Control

hyundai_ioniq_hevplus-16

At long last, the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid has finally made its launch debut here at the 1 Utama Shopping Centre. The model was first shown to us in left-hand drive guise in May this year, before being put on display as a proper right-hand drive model earlier this month.

First, the headline details: two variants are up for grabs here – HEV and HEV Plus, priced at RM100,328 and RM110,828 respectively (on-the-road without insurance). The EEV-certified Ioniq Hybrid is also a locally-assembled (CKD) model, handled by Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors at its Inokom plant in Kulim, Kedah.

Powering both variants is 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. The engine is paired with a six-speed dry dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT), as well as a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor.

Said electric motor provides 32 kW (44 PS) and 170 Nm, and is powered by a 1.56 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack located under the rear seats, accessible via a service slot on the right side. For the curious, the regular 12 V battery is placed in the boot on the right side.

All in all, the combined system output here is 141 PS and 265 Nm, with drive being directed to the front wheels. In terms of performance, zero to 100 km/h takes 11.1 seconds, the top speed is 185 km/h, plus Hyundai claims a fuel consumption of just 3.4 l/100 km (almost 30 km/l), along with a drag coefficient of just 0.24.

The 240 V hybrid powertrain here offers two drive modes – Eco and Sport. In Eco mode, the car will automatically run in EV mode (up to 120 km/h) when there’s enough charge, and will call upon the internal combustion engine (ICE) if needed. As for Sport, both the ICE and electric motor will be in play concurrently to propel the vehicle, complete with a unique red theme for the instrument cluster (HEV Plus only).

The powertrain components rest within a new dedicated platform that employs aluminium in various areas (hood, tailgate) to keep the weight down, with high strength steel to provide rigidity. The suspension setup here is made up of MacPherson struts at the front, while at the rear, you’ll find a multi-link system with dual lower arms for better ride comfort and driving dynamics.

On the exterior, the HEV variant gets a gloss black radiator grille, projector halogen headlamps, bulb-type rear combination taillights, chrome door handles and electric side mirrors, blue and/or grey highlights (depending on body colour) and LED daytime running lights are standard across the range.

The top-of-the-range HEV Plus, meanwhile, gets a chrome grille instead, additional sensors on the badge for the extended safety kit (detailed below), along with HID bi-xenon headlamps, LED positioning lamps and LED rear taillights. Both variants come with 17-inch alloy wheels shod with 225/45R17 Michelin Primacy 3 tyres (with a full size spare in the boot) and all-round disc brakes (15-inch ventilated front, 14-inch rear).

Stepping inside, you’ll find fabric seats on the HEV variant, whereas the HEV Plus adds on leather for the seats and steering wheel. Also exclusive to the HEV Plus are eight-way adjustable power driver’s seat (with two-way lumbar support), a 7.0-inch TFT-LCD digital instrument cluster, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Qi wireless charger and electro-chromic rearview mirror.

The standard HEV makes do with a 4.2-inch TFT-LCD Supervision cluster, manual rearview mirror (day and night mode), no power driver’s seat and a smaller 5.0-inch LCD audio system. However, both variants come with keyless operation, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, rearview camera, rear air-con vents, along with blue interior accents.

Safety-wise, the Ioniq is equipped with seven airbags (dual front, side, curtain and driver’s knee), ABS, brake assist, hill-start assist and Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) as standard. Get the Plus, and it adds on blind spot detection, autonomous emergency braking system (AEB), lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control (Smart Cruise Control), all available for the first time in this price range.

Other details? There’s seven exterior body colours to choose from – Phantom black, Aurora silver, Polar white, Marina blue, Platinum silver, Phoenix orange (HEV Plus only) and Iron grey. Each Ioniq Hybrid also comes with Hyundai’s Care Plus package – a five-year or 300,000 km warranty, plus Safe Drive 24/7 roadside assist.

Those concerned about the traction battery will be glad to know that Hyundai is offering an eight-year (unlimited mileage) warranty on the traction battery, and should it need to be replaced after that, there’s a guarantee that the cost of the battery replacement will be below 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%.

You can also browse full specifications and equipment of the Hyundai Ioniq on CarBase.my.

      So shocking Hyundai has done it. A brilliant Hybrid. All car manufacturers are moving towards Hybrid and EEV. Except one company. That is our famous Proton, who takes billions our Ringgit to keep itself alive but no innovation or inventions.

      Malaysians have been waiting 8 years now for the Proton Hybrid that Proton promised then. 8 tahun tunggu. Where lah Proton is this Hybrid you are talking about?

      Then you took hundreds of million of our LHDN money telling gomen you need to do Hybrid research.

      Then 3 years ago u paraded the Iriz EV. Again you told gomen you needed billions to reseach on EV. 3 years have passed and no EV all

      Where is all the money going to?

      • So funny that people want EV so much that they forget how to charge the car. If you go for a long drive how can you sustain the energy without charging ports? And do you know how long to charge the battery of an EV? As long as the infrastructure is not there, you cannot make EV easily accepted here. Of course, don’t even compare with other countries that use EV a lot because they already have decent infrastructure.

      Last I checked, Lexus M’sia was clearing off their CT200 cars at about RM 150k — similar fuel consumption, similar segment, similar performance but a much more stellar badge. And better built.

            Some people are just going all out to bash because they don’t like a brand? come on, use facts. Lexus couldn’t put ADAS in a RM150-160k car but Hyundai managed to fit it in a RM110k one…nobody’s laughing here. Hyundai just met the people’s expectations.

        what is it with Malaysians and the love for “badge value”…it’s a different story if you’re saying get the CT200 at a premium price because it comes with a better drive/much more equipment etc. Instead, you’re saying get an old stock-clearance CT200 for RM40k more for what is essentially a similarly equipped car as the Ioniq.

        plus, you’re comparing a new car price vs a stock clearance price on the CT200. Comparing apple for apple, when the Ioniq goes on its “stock clearance” price, it’ll still be much cheaper.

          correct me if i’m wrong but regardless of clearance or not isn’t it silly to spend above 100k for a Korean make to begin with?

          Folks are bashing Lexus owners because they pay a slight premium on top of what a BMW or a Merc would cost – but the CT200 owners are receiving similar bashes although they paid peanuts for a Lexus and come what may, probably less than 15% premium on top of a top-of-the-range Altis.

            i guess it boils down to what one’s looking for..if you’re looking for “face” and care about what others think of what you drive, then leave the decision to others and buy what “wows” them (even if it’s a crappy car).

            from a neutral perspective: the Hyundai/Kia lineup has seen vast improvements over the years but it all comes down to individual opinion on what price to pay; one my think it’s silly while others might not.

            from the perspective of a motoring enthusiast: nearly all Korean + Jap cars are relatively rubbish to drive; only because it’s never really been their core focus.

            the Koreans focused on beefing their cars up with all sorts of features, sometimes to a gimmicky level, appeals to some perhaps.

            The Japs on the other hand took the reliability route which in turn sometimes means holding on to old tech longer than they should.

            there are wild cards and lemons within all makes of course so buy what you wish at the price you feel is appropriate. it’s everyone’s individual choice ;)

            that’s why we have choices guys…if you don’t like it it’s OKAY, you can choose to buy something else.

            at this price for this level of equipment, it’s quite a good bargain compared to what is available today

        Try asking Hyundai to make a RM40k car. Do you think they will put up good specs? And even hybrid?

          what ‘decent’ Proton can you buy for RM40K OTR these days apart from the bog standard Saga?

          Considering it’s a local make, Proton cars aren’t exactly cheap for what they have to offer.

          Yes some genius will come here comparing specs with an import make saying it’s similarly specced but costs more than a Proton…but that’s because of taxes and our weak currency.

          Looking from a local manufacturer business model, Proton’s cars are sold for much more than they’re worth IMHO.

    For a Hybrid, this ioniq sure looks sporty when paired with 17-inch sport rims. What more, it comes with 225/45R17 Michelin Primacy 3 tires & all-round disc brakes.

    In the safety department, with seven airbags, ABS, BA, HD assist & Vehicle Stability Management as standard, this ioniq is at par with any C-segment cars.

    Get the Plus, & it adds on blind spot detection, autonomous emergency braking system (AEB), lane keep assist & adaptive cruise control, that is available only in the Premium section.

      i’ve got nothing against B segment cars, in fact their usually nippier to drive. Although, i’m a niche segment in this side of the world..in Europe you hardly see any large cars.

      But here in good ol’ Malaysia…this is where Malaysians of all ethnicities unite under a common chinaman trait: “bigger is better”. it’s not ok to spend RM150K on a driver-oriented performance hatch, but ok to spend that on a mid/large-sized sedan which drives like crap with age-old tech hogging up more space on the already-congested roads.

      So on that note, my beef wouldn’t be “why spend on a B segment”…but instead, why spend the same money on an HR-V which is quite frankly…not the best crossover in the market.

Instead of finding out how they got in, they told me to get pest controller. LoL… I eventually found out how the mice was able to get in by accident. They also let me down by saying a/c not cold while stationary is a fuel saving design. I wrote a lengthy unsatisfactory feedback on Hyundai Korea website and guess what. Hyundai Korea instructed SD to change my compressor. My a/c is now as good as those Denso powered Japanese. So much for their bullshit claims.

    • You should thank Hyundai Korea for replying as they have the sense towards their customers, unlike Peugeot France and Volkswagen Germany. Both car manufacturers is not bothered about customers from Malaysia especially and with their hopeless distributors and service centers. Nonavailability of parts, time consuming for parts to arrive, incompetent technicians for repair and servicing and unreliable parts/components and most importantly poor after sales service is the major issues with Sime Darby (Ford & Hyundai), Naza (Kia & Peugeot) and VW.

      Only consolation is the Koreans are responding to the complaints from Malaysia. That’s positive.

      Hope Peugeot and VW will learn.

        I did return the favor later. I dont know I’m just lucky or what. At least it did solved my biggest headache FOC while I can still live with the slight rattling from the sun roof when driving on bad roads.

        Anyway, I did bought a Kia Rio because it is a sister company. The car again is great for the money. I’m really surprised that NAZA again is the culprit. I went to the Kota Damansara branch and was told they only had junior technicians. I was literally speechless. Luckily someone recommended MPV and JD Auto to me. These guys are more professional than the one operated by NAZA.

    • Expet on Nov 29, 2016 at 9:48 pm

      Yes. The great part is: it is designed by Mr. Rowan Atkinson.

      Like or Dislike: Thumb up 37 Thumb down 5
    • Malaysian Driver on Nov 29, 2016 at 11:31 pm

      It means it uses a different combustion cycle from the normal oto-cycle internal combustion engine that we always see.

      In an Atkinson cycle engine, the compression stroke is deliberately delay by opening the intake valve a little bit longer. Hence you get a shorter compression range but you get a full explosion during the power stroke. Hence, you only conpress partial range of the piston travelling stroke but you get a full stroke of kinetic movement of the piston during the power stroke a. k. a. explosion.

      To put it simple, think of Bruce Lee’s one inch punch: is like you retract only very little of you arm travelling lenght (compression stroke) to save energy for your full lenght punch (power stroke) , while other boxer contract their full arm lenght (compression stroke) before extend their punch (power stroke). Now try to visualised Bruce Lee’s one inch punch as Atkinson cycle and normal boxer’s punch as the conventional oto-cycle combuation engine. See the picture and difference?

      Because the piston travelling lenght (during power stroke) outweights the compression psiton stroke’s travelling lenght in an Atkinson cycle engine, hence you get higher efficiency. But the paid price is you get very weak torque compared to a normal oto-cycle engine. However, in hybrid application, this is not a problem because there’s always the instantaneous torque from the electic motor to back-up the torque deficiency in an Atkinson engine. That explains why Atkinson engine is almost exclusively used in Hybrid cars.

      Another notable exception will be Mazda Skyactiv engine. Although not hybird, Mazda’s Skyactiv actually uses Atkinson stroke during low rev appliaction, and when you need power, the extremely brillant VVT and ECU will immediately transform the combustion cycle back to an Oto- cycle stroke to give you more power and torque, that explains why Mazda’s Skyactiv is able to beat many contemporary NA engines and trashed all downsized turbocharged engines in fuel efficiency (downsized turbocharged fuel saving is a hoax, if you have read what I written before in this car blog). So in effect, Mazda’s Skyactiv is actually a dual combustion cycle (combine Atkinson and Oto cycle) NA engine, this is a very priced technical achievement from the Boys of Hiroshima that even Toyota is willing to trade its fuel cell technology for. Something not many people know of. Happy motoring and cheers.

        Good write up. But a few bones to pick.

        Mazda’s system is called Miller Cycle, not Atkinson. First seen in the 1997 Mazda Millenia albeit with a supercharger. Similar in operation but slightly different. Both are done to reduce pumping losses (compression of air takes energy).

        Actually, most of the efficiency of the Skyactiv engine comes from how it manages to reduce intake charge/combustion temperature enabling it to run much higher compression ratio than other engines.

        Where Else Atkinson cycle engines use a hybrid electric motor to boost torque across most of the rev range, Mazda’s Miller cycle only operates on light throttle loads (not rev dependent as you mentioned).

If you browse the car market in general oversea, many are losing 50% off their value around 4th year. Why Malaysia was able to retain T and H value so much higher? One car dealer told me it’s the making of the crony. Car buyer need loan and when the loan was approved, that’s the market value of the car. The fact that banks would rate T and H value so high could be down to one reason only.

    This is just unbelievable value of money model from Hyundai. With such a long list of spec and it priced at 111k, it is a good buy. VW should have to learn about pricing stragegy unless they still dreaming their car can sell well like earlier.

    Shows how much Toyota really whack their customers previously, Hyundai’s pricing makes the previous Prius look like a joke.

    The battery replace pricing is guaranteed to be lower than RM10k. Just curious, what is the average price for hybrid battery replacement at the moment?

      Try to have similar features for a Toyota Altis, I bet it will go beyond 200k.

  • This hybrid is good for short distance travel when the electric part is used. Longer distance travel diminishes the advantage, similar to fuel consumption of good fuel efficient cars. Is it then worth the RM10k batteries after 8 years probably, or the higher charges (unsure) for a hybrid engine repairs and service when needed after the 3 years.

    wow! wow! wow! for this kinda of price, accessories and drivers’ assistance add ons plus 5 years unlimited warranty…its a steal by MY standards. BTW, its going for about 20K pounds in UK….when was the last time our car prices are comparable to UK? Even high end german margues do not come with this kind of configurations in bolehland…well done Hyundai!

    It tells you what the other brands are doing to make more money…including their EEV range.

    Can someone tell me what is the battery-only range for this car? In the US its quoted as 112 miles – around 180 km. That is amazing. Disappointed Paultan didn’t include this information.

      No such range has been quoted. But “plain” hybrids such as this usually have a very short all-electric range. As in under 5 km.

      The 180 km range you’ve quoted is surely for the Ioniq Electric, which is not available here.

  • This is a joke. They should bring in Plug-In Hybrid version, where is can use both petrol and plug in electric. Then more ppl will buy.

    “….Those concerned about the traction battery will be glad to know that Hyundai is offering an eight-year (unlimited mileage) warranty on the traction battery, and should it need to be replaced after that, there’s a guarantee that the cost of the battery replacement will be below RM10,000….” My checking shows that there is actually no such guarantee that the hybrid battery replacement cost will be below RM10k after the 8 year warranty period. The said ‘guarantee’ is for a different situation. Hope can get reviewer’s feedback. Thanks.
