Finally a SEMA Concept worth writing about!!! Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – Oct. 9, 2017 Meet the 2017 Hyundai “HyperEconiq” Ioniq PHEV Modified by Bismoto Engineering. Hyundai working with Bisimoto Engineering created a unique showstopping concept for this years SEMA show that is absolutely worth the print. Usually SEMA is loaded with 1000+ hp monsters with 10,000 W audio systems that 1. Are never going to see the light of day 2. Would be so outrageously expensive they will never move beyond Wild concept, and 3. Are so horrendous for the environment they would not pass EPA and you would not want them within a block of your family or home. This year Hyundai is changing things up. I am sure they will display a hopped up Santa Fe, Tucson, and maybe even a refreshed 2018 Sonata as a mild to wild build study but this is my nirvana. Meet the Hyundai “HyperEconiq Ioniq” concept. This concept pushes the envelope of aerodynamics, mechanical efficiency, and looks as a multiplier to the already record setting Ioniq platform. Hyundai’s HyperEconiq IONIQ Concept Breakdown Bisimoto pulse-chamber exhaust improving volumetric efficiency <-- Concerned about CATBACK noise here Racepak OBD-monitoring electronics with interactive OBD cluster <-- Nothing added Eco low-friction PurOl Elite Synthetic Oil (0W20) <-- Pennzoil 0W-16/12 would be preferred. Low RRc 19” tires <-- Probably Ecopia EP600 155/70R19s front and rear ARP wheel studs <-- Unless they save mass, no. Buddy Club aluminum brake calipers. Mass savings? Recaro Pole Position racing seats. Nahh. Carbon Revolution 19" x 5.0" CR-9 one-piece carbon-fiber wheels <-- Weight savings could be a real bonus! First one-piece OEM application Bisimoto Dream Aero kit (front splitter, TA wing, side splitters, rear wheel covers) <-- It will need front caps too. Progress Performance coilover suspension Minimized ground clearance Optimized alignment settings <-- We know how to do that now don’t we. Enhanced e-generators <-- Not sure what these are? NGK spark plugs <-- Ok… Optimized inertial supercharging during valvetrain overlap <-- This could be interesting but beating an OEM? Combined fuel economy well over 80 mpg (Bisimoto-testing) Since it is just a concept build it will never see the production line but to dream of an already Hyper efficient OEM platform taken to the next level is ... well, pretty G** Damned Fricken Cool!!!
