Hyundai Ioniq: Driving the Hybrid/Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle / Special Features

Hyundai Ioniq (AE) 2017-2021 Owner's Manual / Hybrid System Overview / Driving the Hybrid/Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle / Special Features

Hybrid vehicles sound different than gasoline engine vehicles. When the hybrid system operates, you may hear a sound from the hybrid battery system behind the rear seat. If you apply the accelerator pedal rapidly, you may hear an unconventional sound. When you apply the brake pedal, you may hear a sound from the regenerative brake system. When the hybrid system is turned off or on, you may hear a sound in the engine compartment. If you depress the brake pedal repeatedly when the hybrid system is turned on, you may hear a sound in the engine compartment. None of these sounds indicate a problem. These are normal characteristics of hybrid vehicles.

If any of following occur, it's a normal condition if you hear a motor sound in the engine compartment:

- After turning off the hybrid system, the brake pedal is released.
- When the hybrid system is turned off, the brake pedal is applied.
- When the driver door is opened.

When the hybrid system is turned ON, the gasoline engine may activate or may not. In this situation, you may feel a vibration. This does not indicate a malfunction. When the "Hyundai Ioniq. Special Features" indicator illuminates, the hybrid system is ready to begin driving. Even if the engine is off, you can operate the vehicle as long as the "Hyundai Ioniq. Special Features" indicator is illuminated.

NOTICE

The hybrid system contains many electronic components. High voltage components, such as cables and other parts, may emit electromagnetic waves. Even when the electromagnetic cover blocks electromagnetic emissions, electromagnetic waves may have an effect on electronic devices. When your vehicle is not used for a long period of time, the hybrid system will discharge. You need to drive the vehicle several times a month. We recommend driving at least for 1 hour or 10 miles. When the hybrid battery is discharged, or when it is impossible to jump start the vehicle, contact your HYUNDAI dealer.

WARNING

  • When you start the hybrid system with the shift lever in P (Park), the "Hyundai Ioniq. Special Features" indicator illuminates on the instrument cluster. The driver can drive the vehicle, even when the gasoline engine is off.
  • When you leave the vehicle, you should turn OFF the vehicle and place the shift lever in P (Park). If you depress the accelerator pedal by mistake, or when the shift lever is not in P (Park), the vehicle will abruptly move, possibly resulting in serious injury or death.

Virtual Engine Sound System (VESS)

The Virtual Engine Sound System generates engine sounds for pedestrians to hear vehicle sound because there is limited sound while electric power is used.

What Does Regenerative Braking Do?

It uses an electric motor when decelerating and when braking and transforms kinetic energy to electrical energy in order to charge the high voltage battery.

Battery

  • Hybrid vehicle
    - The vehicle is composed of a high voltage battery that drives the motor and air conditioner, and an integrated 12V lithium ion polymer battery with the HEV battery that drives the lamps, wipers, and audio system.
    - The integrated 12V battery is automatically charged when the vehicle is in the ready (Hyundai Ioniq. Special Features) mode.
  • Plug-in hybrid vehicle
    - The vehicle is composed of a high voltage battery that drives the motor and air-conditioner, and an auxiliary battery (12 V) that drives the lamps, wipers, and audio system.
    - The auxiliary battery is automatically charged when the vehicle is in the ready (Hyundai Ioniq. Special Features) mode.

    Starting the Vehicle

    1. Carry the smart key or leave it inside the vehicle. 2. Make sure the parking brake is firmly applied. 3. Place the shift lever in P (Park). With the shift lever in N (Neutral), you cannot start the vehicle...

    Hybrid System Gauge

    The hybrid system gauge indicates whether the current driving condition is fuel efficient or not. • CHARGE : Shows that the energy made by the vehicle is being converted to electrical energy...

    Tilt Steering / Telescope Steering

    Adjust the steering wheel so it points toward your chest, not toward your face. Make sure you can see the instrument cluster warning lights and gauges. After adjusting, push the steering wheel both up and down to be certain it is locked in position. Always adjust the position of the steering wheel before driving.

    WARNING

    NEVER adjust the steering wheel while driving. This may cause loss of vehicle control resulting in an accident.
