****... 26 green models???
This triple-threat is called 2017 Hyundai Ioniq consists of a pure battery model (BEV), a hybrid, and a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). The latter two are ‘Prius killers’ and their numbers relative to the equivalent Prius models prove it – well at least for the hybrid.
But that isn’t enough for the Korean automaker as it plans for 26 electrified models by 2020 for both its main brand and sub-brand Kia. Most of them – or 12 models – will be hybrids and six will be PHEVs while hydrogen fuel cell and pure battery models will get two apiece
This is going to be an interesting market for the other competitors out there.ia is responsible for at least 11 of these vehicles like the upcoming Niro crossover. Meanwhile, Hyundai wants the upcoming Ioniq (above) to challenge the Toyota Prius, and the Korean company has hybrid, PHEV, and EV versions on the way.
