The eco-friendly car revolution didn't have to move everyone into the boring car territory. Hyundai understood that and it didn't rush to build their first ecological vehicle from the ground up.

The facelift for the Ioniq brought a new mesh-grille and an updated front bumper design with a silver-colored molding at the bottom. The LED DRLs, as well as the newly available, LED head- and taillights were completely redesigned to make the Ioniq looks better.
Inside the car, a new AVN 10.25” display to control the heating, and climate control. The electric version of the Ioniq has received a new, 7” LCD console display. The same display was also available for the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions, on their higher trim levels.
The battery pack was increased for the electric version from the former 28 kWh to 38.3 kWh and that led to a range of up to 186 miles (300 km).
