Hyundai has confirmed prices for a revised version of its Ioniq, which is available to order now.
As before, three powertrains are available - the hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric.
The electric model has been given a larger battery, up from 28kWh to 38.3kWh, and also a more powerful motor, up from 120hp to 136hp.
It has a claimed range of 184 miles on the WLTP test cycle.
While the hybrid and plug-in hybrid version feature the same basic powertrains as before, with 1.6-litre petrol engines paired with an electric motor, they now feature driver-controlled regenerative braking, potentially boosting efficiency.
Exterior design changes with the facelift include redesigned grilles, new front and rear bumpers and new headlights and taillights. Inside there's a redesigned dashboard and instrument cluster, and new temperature and media controls.
The hybrid is available in SE Connect, Premium, Premium SE and limited-run 1st Edition equipment grades, while the other two powertrains come in Premium or Premium SE only.
A major new feature with Premium and Premium SE cars is a new 10.25in screen with sat-nav and Bluelink telematics system.
Prices for hybrid Ioniqs are £22,795 for an SE Connect, £24,695 for a Premium, £24,955 for a 1st Edition and £26,995 for a Premium SE.
Plug-in hybrid prices are £29,950 for a Premium and £31,950 for a Premium SE, while prices for electric versions are £29,450 and £31,450 respectively - including the £3,500 government plug-in car grant.
The first facelifted Ioniqs are due in showrooms on 5 September.
