Pure electric drive opens the door to a whole new world of simplicity. All-electric mobility means a steep reduction in the number of moving parts the main sources of mechanical noise and vibration. The IONIQ electric’s 100kW electric motor runs whisper quiet but perhaps best of all, it’s inherently simpler, quicker and more reliable than a conventional gas engine while generating absolutely zero emissions. The regenerative braking system captures braking energy that would otherwise be wasted and uses it to top up the battery power reserve. Paddle shifters allow the driver to override the system’s default eco drive setting and to summon full power for quicker performance as the mood or the occasion requires.
Serving up 100kW (120ps) of pure delight, this motor achieves a perfect balance of high efficiency and high power. It has a peak torque rating of 30.1 kgfm (295 Nm) delivered instantly and its entirety the moment you step on the accelerator pedal. And that’s certainly part of the fun side of driving the IONIQ electric.
The brains behind the IONIQ electric, the EPCU makes it all tick. It works quietly behind the scenes performing highly complex tasks that regulate various electrical and electronic systems. You’ll probably never need to know about the AC/DC Inverter, Low Voltage DC-DC Converter and the Vehicle Control Unit but these vital sub-systems are there, all working together in perfect harmony under the direction of the EPCU.
For maximum flexibility, the port offers a choice of recharging modes: Standard or quick charge. Connecting the cable is designed to be safe, secure and simple.
This handy cable is stored in the trunk and allows the IONIQ electric to be recharged practically anywhere. It's designed to connect to a standard wall socket and will recharge IONIQ using household AC current.
