The record for the fastest hybrid on earth has been shattered. A modified Hyundai Ioniq was clocked at 157.825 mph, the fastest a hybrid has ever traveled on land.
To achieve this impressive feat, engineers at Hyundai made notable changes to the newest Hyundai hybrid. The largest change was the addition of nitrous-oxide, which allowed a huge boost of power. The team also removed the air-conditioning. While this may seem insignificant, the record was set at Bonneville Salt Flats, which is in the middle of the desert. We hope the driver was not too hot during the monumental run.
Engineers at Hyundai really wanted to demonstrate their dedication to pushing the limit with hybrids. It also shows the durability and versatility of Hyundai vehicles. We are thrilled to see what Hyundai will come up with next!
