    Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid

    A very attractive proposition from the price point and specification - the locally assembled Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid. It is duty free and pretty nice looking too.

    It uses the Atkinson Cycle Hybrid powerplant i.e. it can run on electric only, engine only or with electric motor & engine combined. In other words, it is the same type of hybrid engine as Toyota Prius and Camry Hybrid.

    Henry, you mean if the hybrid system broke down you need not change the hybrid battery but can still run the car for a long time? My hybrid system broke down with indicator in the dashboard and got it tow to Toyota , they advise me it cannot run on engine alone, but machenics say otherwise.

    No. The hybrid battery and motor must be in working condition. They are all part of the system. Some batteries are nickel metal hydride and some are lithium ion.

    Depending on the way you drive or the drive mode you pre-select (Eco or Sport), the computer in the car will decide whether to run in electric motor only, engine only or motor + engine combined. This is Atkinson cycle hybrid.

    The Honda IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) is different. The motor is there only to assist the engine when decided by the car's computer to do so. This type of hybrid cannot run on motor alone.

    Honda give a 7 year warranty on the IMA battery while this Hyundai is giving 10 years. I don't know the terms and conditions but I suspect it is on a pro-rate basis.

    I do not know the tenure of Toyota's warranty.

    People have pre-conceived ideas and are hesitant to buy hybrids or EVs. They are worried about the reliability, longevity and replacement cost of the hybrid battery. But battery technology have improved by leaps and bounds since the past several years. They are now lighter and can store more power and thereby increasing range.

    The worry on the replacement cost of the battery remain but cost will come down when volume increases. You can read that so many car manufacturer are jumping onto the EV and Hybrid bandwagon. When demand increases so will the residual value. It is all supply and demand.

    I own a Prius, just got my hybrid battery change after 4 years/ 120K km. Toyota gives 8 years warranty.

    Typo in my post #5.

    The Hyundai hybrid battery warranty is for 8 years, not 10 years.

    Is it a 100% free replacement or pro-rata?

    Panadol,

    Is there anyone in this thread talking about or looking for a perfect machine? You are reading things which are not there. I will stay off Panadol if I were you. You are taking too much leading to hallucinations and making you write a pathetic one liner and thinking you are very clever.

    Btw, you can continue to walk but watch out for those uncovered drains. If you are not careful you might fall in and get yourself killed.

    Hybrid is good in city driving but not for highway. Hybrid vehicles' fuel economy is not the same when driving in the city and on the highway.

    Most hybrids combine a petrol engine with an electric motor. This motor can power the car on its own at low speeds, while the energy that's normally lost when you touch the brakes is used to recharge the batteries that supply the electric motor with power. As a result, hybrid cars are great for driving in cities and in stop-start traffic. However, on faster roads the petrol engine has to do all or most of the work, meaning a hybrid is likely to be no more efficient than a conventional petrol car on longer journeys.

    Because the car is now installed with both petrol engine and a battery, space is an issue for hybrid car to have a bigger capacity engine. Hence, it is not a pleasant drive on highway with this "small car" when higher engine power is the crucial element for a smooth and safe journey.

    Since petrol is relatively cheap here, I will not consider hybrid car for the time being...
