Hyundai is introducing not one, not two, but three electrified compact sedans for the 2017 model year, including a 110-mile EV, plug-in hybrid, and traditional hybrid, the automaker announced at the New York International Auto Show.

The trio will roll out as part of the Ioniq nameplate and give Hyundai affordable electrified vehicles to compete with the Toyota Prius, Chevrolet Volt, Ford Focus Electric, and NIssan Leaf.

The Ioniq Hybrid and Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid both use a new Kappa 1.6L direct-injected Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder that makes 104 hp and 109 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine delivers power via a 6-speed double-clutch transmission.

The Ioniq Hybrid's 32-kilowatt electric motor makes 43 hp and 125 lb.-ft. of torque powered by a lithium-ion polymer battery with 1.56-kilowatt-per-hour capacity.

The Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid offers an electric range of 25 miles from its 8.9-kilowatt-per-hour lithium-ion battery. A 45-kilowatt-per-hour electric motor generates 60 hp.

The Ioniq Electric uses a 28-kilowatt-per-hour lithium-ion polymer battery and 88-kilowatt electric motor that makes 120 hp and 215 lb.-ft. of torque. The Ioniq Electric provides an estimated 125 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe).
