The Hyundai IONIQ sedan has been teased in the form of three official sketches, giving us a fair idea on its exterior and interior design. The company has also confirmed that the green car will come in three variants – regular hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric – making it the first production model of its kind.
Visually, the IONIQ is easily recognizable as a Hyundai, thanks to the familiar design lines. The sketch shows swept back headlights with C-Shaped LED daytime running lights, and vertical foglights which could also be LEDs. It’s safe to assume that the sedan will sport a hexagonal grille.
The sleek aerodynamic profile is composed of a smoothly arching roofline, chrome underlined green house, accentuated waistline and drag reducing alloy wheel design. Though the rear fascia has not been revealed yet, we can make out a notchback style overhang with wraparound taillights.
The simple and uncluttered interior features new steering wheel, a digital instrument console and an infotainment display on the centre console. Various control buttons are neatly arranged on the transmission tunnel like in the Porsche 911. The interior is expected to have blue ambient lighting.
