New Hyundai Ioniq gets top safety rating
The new Hyundai Ioniq has received a maximum five-star safety rating in Euro NCAP tests.
The new model – which offers hybrid, electric and plug-in drivetrains – achieved top marks in the four categories: Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Pedestrian and Safety Assist.
“The five-star rating from Euro NCAP for the IONIQ underlines the benefits of Hyundai Motor’s approach to democratising technology,” says Thomas A Schmid, chief operating officer of Hyundai Motor Europe. “State-of-the-art active safety features are fitted as standard in all versions making the Ioniq one of the safest cars in its segment and a safe and accessible e-mobility choice for customers.”
The Ioniq Hybrid and the Ioniq Electric are now on sale throughout Europe. The Ioniq Plug-in will be introduced in 2017.
