Hyundai preps hybrid concept cars for Frankfurt

Hyundai ix Metro fq

Hyundai has released teaser images two distinctive new concept vehicle it will unveil shortly at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The ix Metro and the i10 Electric will be in Germany to show off the Korean automaker’s Blue Drive eco-efforts.

The ix Metro (pictured) is a gasoline-electric hybrid with C02 emissions of just 80 grams-per-kilometre. The very low emissions, are the direct result of a small, 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine with direct injection and turbocharging mated to a six-speed dual clutch transmission that works in tandem with a battery. Details of range haven’t been released for the ix Metro.

The i10 Electric is a zero-emission version of the standard i10 city car that uses a 16 kWh battery and a 49kW motor for a 160km range. Using regular household 220V charging, the automaker says that the battery can be fully charged in five hours. Hyundai have stated that the vehicle is production-ready and will go on sale in its home market in the latter half of next year.

Hyundai isn’t done there and will also bring the Elantra LPI HEV and Blue Will Plug-In Hybrid Electric, both previously displayed, to the Frankfurt show.
