The Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid is now available in Europe for order. The opportunity to secure one of Hyundai's groundbreaking cars is now possible. It is set to make waves in Europe this summer.

The Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid to be available in Europe will be powered by the same 103-horsepower 1.6-liter petrol. This is present in regular Hybrid models. However, the European Ioniq will get a more powerful 60-horsepower electric motor because of a larger 8.9kWh battery pack.

Hyundai is proud to proclaim that the Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid can run solely on electric power for as far as 63 kilometers. It is also able to accelerate from zero to 62mph in 10.6-seconds with a top speed of 110mph. Well, it is definitely not the fastest and Hyundai wants to keep it that way.

Recently, Hyundai is also pleased because of the recent spike on Ioniq Hybrid export sales. There were a total of 17,202 Ioniqs exported between January and April 2017. This is significantly higher compared to last year's 16,644 units.

The Ioniq is Hyundai's third highest in terms of exports record. It trails comfortably close behind Avante and Accent. The Hybrid model is considered more popular compared to the all-electric model and the plug-in hybrid model.

The Hyundai Ioniq is also on its way to reaching its iconic status. Its electric, hybrid and plug-in hybrid models all have interesting statistics to boast of. Driving one is considered seamless and comfortable. To make things even more interesting, industry experts compare it like driving a normal gasoline car.

The Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid's availability in Europe is expected to even contribute to Hyundai's impressive statistics. It is easy to like this car. Its encouraging and positive reviews from industry experts and car enthusiasts all speak for itself. The year 2017 promises to be one exceptional year for Hyundai.
