WAPA members are invited to experience the Hyundai Ioniq Electrics and Hybrids during WAPA’s June Meeting with a lunch presentation from the Hyundai Product Planning group. All at River Farm, south of Alexandria VA, starting at 11 am on June 22.
The eco-focused Hyundai Ioniq has been developed for high energy efficiency without compromising driving performance. Ioniq is the first vehicle to offer three distinct electrified powertrains on a single, dedicated vehicle platform. Hyundai’s approach for the Ioniq line delivers an uncompromising design and driving experience coupled with the latest in safety and convenience technologies.
The Ioniq Hybrid and Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid both feature a new Kappa 1.6L direct-injected Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine specifically tailored to the hybrid application and is combined with a quick-shifting six-speed double-clutch transmission – differentiating Ioniq from its key competitors with a more dynamic and engaging driving experience.
The Ioniq sleek silhouette and simple, carefully wrought contours assist the efficient management of airflow around the exterior. Applications like front wheel air curtains, a rear spoiler and diffuser, side sill moldings, floor undercover and a closed-wheel design all contribute to the car’s high aerodynamic efficiency of 0.24 Cd. Additionally, the Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid feature a three-stage active air flap integrated with the front grille, while a sleek, closed front fascia differentiates the Electric model.
The driving experience inside Ioniq is enhanced through state-of-the-art connectivity features like Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto®, and Blue Link®, as well as wireless charging for smartphones. Ioniq offers the very latest in advanced safety, including Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, for high levels of both active and passive vehicle safety.
River Farm is home to the American Horticultural Society located half-way between Alexandria and Mount Vernon, it was the northernmost of George Washington’s five farms.
