While car manufacturers mostly use SEMA to showcase their performance updates, the Hyundai has taken another approach as Bisimoto tunes Hyundai HyperEconiq Ioniq which has more than 80 MPG. The Hyundai Company created the new Hyundai HyperEconiq Ioniq in partnership with Bisimoto Engineering. The Bisimoto is renowned for its excitedly powerful show cars, which include the rear-drive Hyundai Santa Fe and Honda Odyssey.
The Bisimoto Engineering and Hyundai have pushed the bars by building a Hyundai Ioniq hybrid model known as the HyperEconiq Ioniq. The resulting HyperEconiq is exclusively designed for fuel economy, but not for power. Based on about 83 tests conducted by the tuning company, the Hyundai Ioniq model exceeds 80 miles per gallon. This development is absolutely impressive given that the regular Ioniq hybrid manages only 57 mpg in the city and 59 mpg on the highway drive.
Hyundai HyperEconiq Ioniq – Custom Body Kit and Changes
The Hyundai and Bisimoto have enriched nearly every aspect inside and out of this car. However, the most prominent upgrades are evident on the outside. The Hyundai HyperEconiq Ioniq comes with a custom body kit that includes front and lateral splitters, as well as a rear spoiler. It also features prominent wheel spats—something unseen even in the first generation Honda Insight.
The latest Hyundai Ioniq brings some lightweight, all-in-one carbon fiber wheels drawn from Carbon Revolution. The tuning company also opted to use high-silica low-rolling-resistance tires. We also see aluminum brake calipers that lighten the vehicle, in addition to a coil-over suspension that lowers the car to achieve better aerodynamics.
The SEMA-bound HyperEconiq Ioniq conveys a Bisimoto Dream Aero kit. It accommodates a unique front splitter, rear-wheel covers, TA wing and side splitters. Additionally, this model receives enhanced e-generators, Bisimoto pulse-chamber exhaust system and a Progress Performance coil-over suspension that lowers ground clearance.
Inside the HyperEconiq Ioniq, we are likely to be treated to Recaro Pole Position sprinting seats. Overall, the Hyundai HyperEconiq Ioniq looks attractive. The body kit not only makes this car to look sporty but also makes it aggressive. Its carbon fiber wheels complement the car’s dark gray color. Although we don’t know whether or not the wheel spats are functional, we cannot argue at this point. We are excited to find hypermiling updates entering the aftermarket mainstream.
Hyundai HyperEconiq Ioniq – Engine
The Hyundai HyperEconiq Ioniq doesn’t sacrifice on drivability, according to a statement from Bisi Ezerioha, the president of Bisimoto Engineering. It leverages on the excellent Ioniq powertrain and electrified platform. The tuning company focused on various technical elements to ensure that efficiency, design and aerodynamics are of the highest level.
Due to the updates, the HyperEconiq Ioniq executes a combined fuel economy that goes well past 80 miles per gallon. For references, the regular 2017 Hyundai Ioniq is rated at 58 mpg in combined highway and city driving.
Hyundai HyperEconiq Ioniq – Release Date
The Hyundai had earlier divulged plans to discharge three versions of the Ioniq. These include a standard hybrid, EV and the plug-in hybrid. Except for the plug-in, all versions made debut earlier this year. The HyperEconiq comes to the 2017 SEMA Show this fall. The show starts from 31st October and runs until the 3rd November at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
