The Hyundai Ioniq first made its debut in Hyundai’s home country of South Korea but in January of 2016 as a hybrid. Since then, it has spawned two other versions – an all-electric model and a plug-in hybrid model that doubled a 1.6-liter four-banger with a 45 kW electric motor. As the 2016 L.A. Auto Show kicked off, Hyundai grew its Ioniq lineup yet again with the introduction of Autonomous Ioniq Concept. OF course, as the Concept name implies, it’s not a real production model the Ioniq triplets that we’re already familiar with, but it is a firm representation of what the model will be when level 5 autonomy is perfected and legal for use on public roads. The biggest news about this concept is that the LIDAR system used to identify the car’s surrounds is stashed away and hidden inside the bumper instead of sitting on the roof. But, there’s more to it than that, so let’s talk a little more about it.
