Hyundai Takes Ioniq Above and Beyond

Taking advantage of the SEMA Show in Las Vegas where industry leaders gather each year to see the latest in concept vehicles and aftermarket accessories, Hyundai has teamed up with Bisimoto Engineering to deliver the ultimate Ioniq dream car. The HyperEconiq Ioniq concept amplifies the ability of the Ioniq platform to deliver efficiency and performance, delivering fuel economy surpassing 80 mpg. “The Hyper Econiq Ioniq takes the Ioniq where we always knew it could go, without sacrificing drivability,” according to the president of Bisimoto Engineering, Bisi Ezerioha. “Leveraging the outstanding Ioniq electrified platform and powertrain, we’ve focused on a variety of technical elements to bring efficiency, aero and design to the next level.” Although only auto industry people can attend the SEMA Show, anyone can see the innovation and technology in the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid by taking a test drive at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Long List of Upgrades in Show Car

The HyperEconiq Ioniq takes efficiency and reducing friction to a new level, thanks to a number of specialized components. Bisimoto created a special pulse-chamber exhaust system to enhance the volumetric efficiency. Highly sensitive OBD monitoring electronics keep the fuel/oxygen mixture at optimal levels, while special low-friction synthetic oil allows the pistons to slide freely. Low resistance tires, lightweight racing seats, a special aerodynamics kit that includes a front and side splitters and a suspension kit that minimizes ground clearance while optimizing alignment settings all adds to the efficiency of this special Ioniq.

2018 Ioniq Offers Three Platforms

When the plug-in hybrid model arrives at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale there will be three different powertrains available for the 2019 Ioniq lineup. The affordable Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid starts at just $22,200 and provides almost 700 miles of driving range while delivering a combined 58 mpg in both city and highway driving. Hurry in to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale to take advantage of a limited offer that provides either $1,000 in savings or 0 percent APR for up to 60 months for qualified buyers. Qualified lessees can also get a payment as low as $219 a month for 36 months. Although the Ioniq Electric vehicle is currently only available to California buyers, it does deliver an impressive 124-mile range on a single charge. Even more impressive is the $29,500 starting price, which does not include any available federal tax credits. When the plug-in hybrid model comes available in the very near future, you can expect 27 miles of all-electric range and a total range of about 650 miles.

Now in its fifth iteration, the popular and affordable Hyundai Accent comes with an upscale exterior design, improved driving dynamics and a sophisticated interior that will remind you of a vehicle that costs thousands of dollars more. For 2018, the Hyundai Accent also features advanced connectivity that keeps you in touch with the outside world.

New Rigid Chassis Provides Better Handling

When the 2018 Hyundai Accent arrives at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale later this fall, you’ll be able to feel the results of modern engineering in the way the vehicle handles on the road. Hyundai engineered this vehicle to be the category leader in driving dynamics by integrating 13 percent more high-strength steel into the body and chassis from the previous generation Accent. The result is a rigid chassis that not only provides better handling but also reduces annoying road noise. Another advantage of all that high-strength steel is the ability of the new Accent to absorb the results of a collision with a reduction of injury to the driver and passengers. Key advances in the suspension help reduce body roll in corners and improve the ride comfort.

Sporty Design Provides Aerodynamic Excellence

While the muscular sculpted sides provide an aggressive profile that mirrors the look of much more expensive luxury sedans, the sweeping roofline, cascading grille and integrated lights provide an aerodynamic design that slips through the air with just a 0.28 coefficient of drag. The aerodynamic efficiency is boosted by a spoiler on the front and lower ride height that slices through the wind like a hot knife through butter. All of that is achieved while making the new Accent both longer and wider than last year’s model, delivering more interior room.

Updates Galore on New Accent

The new Hyundai Accent comes with an improved 4-cylinder, 1.6L engine that provides 130 horsepower and an estimated 119 pound-feet of torque. Hyundai offers a standard 6-speed manual transmission, or you can choose a 6-speed automatic. A standard 5-inch color touchscreen is an improvement on last years model and there’s an optional 7-inch display. Premium features include an available hands-free trunk release, USB charging and available heated front seats. Push button start and automatic temperature control are also available on the new Hyundai Accent, which you can test drive soon at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Hope on Wheels Helps Kids Fight Cancer

The beginning of September marks a special time for car dealers in America, as that’s when new models typically arrive on the showroom floor. For the Hyundai Motor Company and Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale, it’s also when the annual “Hyundai Hope on Wheels” kicks off, raising funds to fight childhood cancer. “While great strides have been made in the fight against pediatric cancer over the last 19 years, pediatric cancer sadly remains the leading disease-related cause of death for children in the U.S.,” said Jerry Flannery, Hyundai President and CEO. “It is a terrible disease that impacts far too many kids each year and robs them of their youth. As part of our mission at Hyundai to be a better company, we remain committed to bringing hope to families faced with this disease and to helping close the gap in funding for critical cancer research.”

Awarding Research Grants to Children’s Hospitals

Hyundai will spend September traveling across the country to award 40 grants for research to children’s hospital, contributing $8.5 million in the fight against childhood cancer. Since starting the program 20 years ago, Hyundai has donated about $130 million to the pediatric cancer battle. When the Hope on Wheels team visits each hospital, part of the ceremony is to host a Handprint Ceremony. Children fighting cancer in each hospital will put their hands in paint and adorn a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe with their handprints. The white vehicle with colored handprints is a beacon of hope that travels across the country.

It’s a time when we honor the courageous children battling cancer while also funding the doctors and researchers that are working tirelessly to provide care and develop new treatments,” according to Hope on Wheels Board Chairman Scott Fink. Hope on Wheels gives four different types of grants that all fund research efforts by leading oncologists.
