Hyundai and Bisimoto collaborate for the HyperEconiq Ioniq concept

The concept is set to make its debut at the 2017 SEMA show

Fresh from its relatively recent unveiling, the Hyundai Ioniq has already set itself as a good building platform. For this year’s SEMA, Hyundai has combined their expertise with that of Bisimoto Engineering’s to create the HyperEconiq Ioniq concept.

“The HyperEconiq Ioniq takes the Ioniq where we always knew it could go, without sacrificing drivability,” said Bisi Ezerioha, president of Bisimoto Engineering. “Leveraging the outstanding Ioniq electrified platform and powertrain, we’ve focused on a variety of technical elements to bring efficiency, aero and design to the highest level.”

This unique hypermiling-efficiency-focused concept incorporates powertrain efficiencies, low emissions, advanced aero and friction reduction with driving expertise. For those who may be wondering what work and parts went into the car, here is a list of the HyperEconiq’s modifications.
