SEMA-bound Hyundai Ioniq puts ef­fi­ciency over power

The Standard (St. Catharines) - - DRIVING - NICK TRAGIANIS

Tun­ing com­pany Bisi­moto is no stranger to prep­ping high-horse­power Hyundai ve­hi­cles for the Spe­cialty Equip­ment Mar­ket As­so­ci­a­tion (SEMA) show in Las Ve­gas. But this year, the two com­pa­nies are do­ing things a lit­tle dif­fer­ently.

For the 2017 SEMA show, Bisi­moto is prep­ping a Hyundai Ioniq — known as the Hyper­E­coniq Ioniq — that will fo­cus on big ef­fi­ciency over big horse­power. Ac­cord­ing to Bisi­moto’s tests, the Hyper­E­coniq Ioniq is good for 83 miles per gal­lon (2.8 L/100 km).

Tweaks in­clude an aero kit with rear-wheel cov­ers, along with 19inch car­bon-fi­bre wheels, coilover sus­pen­sion sys­tem, up­graded ex­haust, alu­minum brake calipers and Re­caro seats, to name just a few of the nu­mer­ous up­grades.

This year’s SEMA show kicks off on Oct. 31 and runs un­til Novem­ber 3.
