Hyundai Ioniq

Hyundai begins in America the commercialization of the new Ioniq, which will be offered in a hybrid, plug-in and fully electric hybrid version.

The Hyundai Ioniq reached the different markets in 2016. That already seems far away, offered in a hybrid version, plug-in hybrid, and fully electric. The versatile ecological vehicle of the South Korean brand has managed to put more than 60,000 units on the roads. Now it’s time to renew, with new technology and a renewed aesthetic, which we can now enjoy in the American market.

The aesthetic changes of the new Hyundai Ioniq focus mainly on its front, and we can see a new grille. It will be closed for the electric version presenting a new specific design pattern. Something has also served to modify the bumper and give it a more refined air. A silver molding and details have been included in the area of ​​the daytime running lights located on the sides. The LED front optical group also offers a new look, as does the LED rear group along with the anthracite-colored moldings that have been added to the bumper.

Hyundai offered the Ioniq with a palette of five colors. Now add four new colors called Fluidic Metal, Electric Shadow, Liquid Sand, and Typhoon Silver. Besides, it should also be said that, for plug-in and fully electric hybrid versions, they will be available with 16-inch wheels that receive a new design.

In the interior, there are also changes in several sections, starting with the introduction of a new 10.25-inch touch screen for the infotainment and navigation system. That will be offered as an option, although as standard, it will already have a screen of 7 inches that has been improved. In addition, to give a more elegant touch, Hyundai has installed new Ioniq ambient lighting in blue for the bottom of the dashboard both on the passenger side and the center console.

As with the color of the body, Hyundai has also paid attention to the upholstery of the Ioniq seats. It will be offered as standard in Fossil Gray fabric, but optionally we can opt for the leather upholstery that will be offered in four different colors. Some of them exclusive to the chosen model: Fossil Gray, Shale Gray, Red Umber (only for the hybrid and plug-in hybrid), and Electric Shadow (only for the electric version).

Some of them included as standard the Hyundai SmartSense package as a frontal collision assistant with the detection of pedestrians. And cyclists, warning of driver fatigue, assistant of lane maintenance and long hid lights assistant. Optionally we will also have several systems available that finish is completing the series offer.

But as we had previously mentioned, the most important change may be found in the electric version of the Ioniq. But not precisely in its 136 hp and 295 Nm electric motor, but in its battery that now becomes 38.3 kWh, which translates into 36% more capacity and autonomy that increases to 311 km. Its standard built-in charger now becomes 7.2 kW for Type 2 AC charging, which means that in a 100 kW fast-charging station we can recharge up to 80% of the battery capacity in 54 minutes.

On the other hand, both in the hybrid and plug-in hybrid version, we will find a 1,600 CC gasoline engine that delivers 105 hp. It associated with an electric motor with 43.5 hp power, which translates into a combined power of 141 HP and a torque of 265 m.N, associated with a sports transmission with a double-clutch and six gears.

New Hyundai Venue SUV Will Expands Its SUV Family

Hyundai

The Hyundai Venue, the new compact SUV of the Korean brand, will finally jump over the puddle and become a global model to reach more markets.

It seems incredible that there is still some gap to explode within the SUV segment. But it looks even more when we see how brands do not cease to release new models. An example of this is in Hyundai, where the Korean brand will expand its offer with the new Venue, a compact-sized SUV that will fall below the Kona within the brand’s scale.

Hyundai

Under the urban vibes concept comes the new Hyundai Venue, a model that will target the younger audience. It not only for aesthetics but also for being a vehicle. That created to move in the city, like a fish in the water, although it will not detract the ability to get out. The Hyundai Venue had as its primary objective the USA market. But the brand seems to be clear that this model will succeed in other markets, hence through a spectacular video, they show it and announce it as a global model.

In the video, the Hyundai Venue arrives by air inside a Lockheed C-130 Hercules heading to the Inyokern airport in California. While the rest of the Hyundai SUV range approaches by land, being able to see the Kona, NEXO, Tucson, Santa Fe, and Palisade together. Once on the ground, everyone receives him, and they step aside until they reach the largest of the family. The Palisade seems to challenge him before letting him be part of it and then all together accompany him on his arrival in the city.

As in the video, once the Hyundai Venue arrives in our cities and roads, we will find an SUV of small measures, with 4,030 mm in length, 1,770 mm in width, and 1,560 mm in height. That is not far from the attractive design; we could already see in his sketches. Precisely this will be its great asset, an elegant and youthful design capable of attracting the youngest audience. It will also have an excellent capacity for customization so that each client can give their personal touch.

Hyundai

The interior in two shades will be simple, perhaps with too much abuse of hard plastics. But with a clean design, chair in the center console by a touch screen from which we will operate the infotainment system and other functions. In the instrument cluster, we will have another color TFT screen that will show the most critical information to the driver. With capacity for five people, you will have to see with more data in your hand, as will be your comfort. The trunk with 306 liters capacity will fulfill its function.

At the moment, we do not know which mechanics Hyundai has chosen for the Venue in America. We will have to wait a little longer to know them, although everything indicates that the gasoline engines will be the protagonists. What you do know is that the Hyundai Venue will arrive in these next months of 2019 to the different markets.

The Completely Autonomous Hyundai Sonata 2020 is in Driving Tested

Hyundai Sonata

Last March, Hyundai signed a memorandum of understanding with the Russian technology company Yandex to develop autonomous cars of Level 4 and Level 5 jointly. These levels of autonomous driving are the most advanced since they would not have human intervention. The two companies immediately set to work, as Yandex released a video of a self-diagnostic test of the Hyundai Sonata 2020 prototype in its outdoor laboratory.

The initial objective of the collaboration was to build an autonomous prototype based on a Hyundai or Kia model, and as you can see, that has achieved.

Hyundai Sonata

According to Yandex, the new Hyundai Sonata 2020  chosen because its platform allows easy integration of autonomous driving technology and hardware with minimal modifications. The Russian team received the first unit of the Hyundai Sonata at the end of May 2019 and began working on the prototype with Hyundai Mobis engineers.

Initial tests have been carried out on the closed test grounds of Yandex, where the autonomous Sonata has been driving 24/7 in a fully autonomous mode. Currently, the Hyundai Sonata autonomous driving tested in various weather conditions and simulated traffic situations with other autonomous driving cars on track.

Hyundai Sonata autonomous, a work of Yandex

The plan is to start testing the vehicle on the streets of NewYork, “shortly.” The Hyundai Sonata 2020 will be part of the Yandex autonomous fleet, which is expected to reach 100 vehicles by the end of the year. Thanks to the partnership with Hyundai Mobis, more autonomous models of Hyundai and Kia will join the fleet in the future.

Hyundai Sonata

“Our collaboration with Hyundai Mobis is an important element of our expansion strategy, and the new Hyundai Sonata is just the beginning,” Yandex said. Through the collaboration with Hyundai Mobis and other automotive players, the company’s long-term goal is to build “an autonomous out-of-the-box driving solution for a wide variety of automotive platforms.”

That is more or less what Waymo is doing with autonomous driving, and it is noteworthy that Yandex is the «Google of Russia.» The program of autonomous cars of the American company began in 2017. To create genuinely autonomous cars of Level 5; that is, vehicles that do not require driver intervention in any driving scenario ». Now, in its third year, the autonomous driving team is approaching the achievement of the objective. «In August, the Robo taxi service successfully launched, we expanded the tests to Israel and demonstrated one of our driverless cars on public roads during CES 2019. As we move forward in our journey towards the development of cars with advanced autonomous driving, we are pleased to announce the first automotive collaboration.

In addition to the credibility increase offered by the agreement with Hyundai Mobis, Yandex entered the dispute with leaders in the field. Therefore, those looking for a decent offer (Uber and Apple) may now be more willing to look beyond Yandex’s Russian roots. Yandex autonomous driving has arrived.
