Are hybrids all a single forward gear or do some of them have a multigeared auto transmission like in conventional vehicles?


Depends on the hybrid set up

Honda insight, accord and odyssey hybrids and nissan e power going with a set up with no transmission. Engine charges the battery and battery runs the electric motor to power the car directly.

Hyundai ioniq, toyota prius, honda fit and vezel hybrid have multigear cvt's and DCT transmissions.


the full EVs have no tranny.


Note that the Prius only simulates a CVT. The "transmission" is two motors connected via planetary gear sets. They just spin at different speeds.


OHHH! So its a traditional automatic transmission with integrated motor and generator.
They could have just called it an automatic transmission like everyone else does ... Instead they have to be all fancy with their "e CVT" nonsense ...

Not exactly. There are no clutches or torque converters or discreet gear ratios like in traditional auto trannys. It's an extremely simple setup. There are tons of YouTube videos that explain the Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive. Check them out.

I see ... Has the planetary gear set but uses the motors as a sort of clutch

Hey guys,

Spent my afternoon into night reading this post.

Great info all around.

I'm currently considering buying an Ioniq.

I can relate to so many things said over the life of the post.

I had a A33 Cefiro with CNG. 100l tank. Yes it's a $14 fill up, but not worth the amount of trips to the pump. Also, most pumps would have issues when I had mine. They also changed the nozzle twice and both times I had to sink the cost. It was pointless to me and I took a loss to get rid of the car. There was a huge article in circulation about CNG not being the future with specific reference to the lack of infrastructure in Trinidad.

As for Toyota, I've owner a brand new Corolla from them and I did the 5k service interval. Caught them lying a few times well myself. Also, poor service when you really do ask for specific things to be addressed.

I also have a new model Civic from Classic/Ansa. The tech is far better than the Ioniq (went in to check one). And you cannot exceed 17" wheels without voiding the warranty. I asked about other things like using LED headlights etc. All shot down. Was told I would void my warranty. Got it all in writing in an email trail.

As for Hyundai, I can tell you that I've seen many many Elantras and Tuscons with horrible tint issues on the rear glass.

I can also agree that driving to maximize economy is a challenge I embrace fully. I do it with my Civic, trying to keep the car in eco mode at all times. No ac driving most times.

A note on the Niro, their warranty on the car and battery is only 3 years or 100,000 kms. Vs the 10 years you getting on the Ioniq.

So I was told that there were currently 5 Ioniqs at Massy that were parked up with undiagnosable issues. I was told they brought in someone to look into it and that person could not figure out the problems.

Can anyone here verify that info?

I have an Ioniq, bought it from the 1st shippment, just crossed 17000km. No issues, serviced 3 times so far at Massy in Diego. Was able to verify that oil filters were changed each time. Toyota and Honda are always a good buy but overpriced in T&T. I mostly do short runs so i get between 700 to 800km on 3/4 tank. When i do longer runs it improves, also confirmed buy other ioniq owners i know.

The Ioniq and Niro are the same mechanically. Verify the warranty on the battery, all hybrid vehicles usually have 10years unlimited warranty, 3 years for everything else.

Glad you got no issues.

Knowing the driver I am, I'll squeeze every last inch out of it.

I did confirm, the battery warranty on the Niro is 3 years.

If the rep wasn't wrong, then the Ioniq is the out and out better buy.

Hyundai Ioniq in Trinidad...

Postby snypaz » October 20th, 2018, 9:09 pm

1yr 1month old. 17000+km. 2 Services complete. (I'm doing them at 6000km intervals). No rear glass Tint issues (I tinted at Sign Boss). No problems on mileage (I average around 1000km per tank). $185 to fill. (This bothers me now). No noises. No squeaks. My door upholstery gets dirty quick but that's quickly remedied. All and All, Amazing car. Would recommend to anyone looking.

Did you drive through some water causing the brake calipers to get wet and car was parked for a couple of days? The rear brakes sometime stick. Have you tried driving forward and back to try to get them to release?

Oh hmm, i may have driven thru a small stretch to get home on Friday...and yeah, it was parked up over the weekend.

I can only go backwards, but didnt attempt to mash down to get some force fearing i would damage something. would it release without getting damaged?

When it's parked up for a long period after getting wet (Whether by washing the car or Weather), the back brakes do get a little stuck. You hear a literal sound when disengaging and moving forward. Never got that error message though.

Sticking parking Brake

I have a problem with my parking brake sticking on.This morning after parking for 3 days, when I released the foot operated parking brake and started to move off there was a loud clunk from Rear RHS, followed by a similar clunk from LHS Rear. It sounds as if the brake pads are sticking to the disk. (I assume the parking brake uses pads on Disk) Although I park on a slight downward slope the car did not move after engaging drive until I applied some throttle.Re-applying parking brake and releasing it again everything was normal

So update: applied throttle which got the car moving.

pumped the brakes hard and fast, but it wont brake or come to a total stop at all until pedal is totally depressed. went back and forth a couple times to see if it will change but nothing. the brakes pedal feels a lot softer than usual now

Getting error Stop Eng and Check Regen Brakes

The clunk is definitely a thing. On slopes and after the brakes get wet or parked in wet/cold conditions for long periods. I had no issues disengaging the parking brake though.
