Hyundai Ioniq Electric Is Not That Exciting, But It Ticks All The Right Boxes 14

If you’re in the market for an affordable electric car, there’s a number of options to choose from, from the Nissan Leaf to the Volkswagen e-Golf. Hyundai has recently started offering their own zero-emission hatchback as well, in the form of the Ioniq Electric, which joins the Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid versions of the same car.

It has a conservative styling both on the outside and inside, which makes a huge difference over the somewhat flashy BMW i3, but it can fit three adults at the back, although the one in the middle seat won’t be very happy.

The Ioniq Electric also has a decent boot space that’s said to be bigger than what you’d get in a Volkswagen e-Golf, but slightly smaller than the Ioniq Hybrid.

CarBuyer recently took one out for a short review, finding that it’s as quiet as expected on the go. Still, the wind and tire noise coming in at higher speeds could make you forget you’re sitting in an EV.

As far as the technical bits go, naught to 60mph (96km/h) takes a decent 10sec, and you’re going to need 4.5 hours to fully charge the battery, or up to 12 when using a domestic 3-pin socket, which allows you to travel for a claimed range of 124 miles (199km). There’s a fast-charge option as well, which fills the battery up to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.

Money-wise, the Hyundai Ioniq Electric comes at around £25,000 ($33,885) in the United Kingdom, after the government electric car grant, which makes it more affordable than an e-Golf, but if money is a concern, then perhaps you may want to check out the Nissan Leaf, too.

Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Is Impressively Frugal, But Doesn’t Like Adults At The Back 28

On paper, the new Hyundai Ioniq is a very convincing Prius rival, offering impressive fuel economy and way less challenging looks than its Japanese nemesis.

The Hyundai Ioniq even has a proper gearbox for those hating the scooter-like CVT transmissions you normally find in hybrids, as it pairs a six-speed dual-clutch unit to the petrol-electric powertrain.

Speaking of which, the Hyundai Ioniq is pairing a 103hp 1.6-liter engine with a 43hp electric motor, producing a combined 139hp and 195lb-ft of torque.

The company claims that it’ll do a 0-62mph (100km/h) in 10.8 seconds and a 115mph (185km/h) top speed, but more importantly the Ioniq will return an official combined 83.1mpg UK when equipped with the smaller 15-inch wheels.

If there’s one issue with Hyundai’s hybrid model, that has to be the tight rear headroom caused by the sloping roofline. Despite providing more than enough leg room, tall adults will find little space for their heads and that’s a shame as the rest of the car appears to offer a great package.

Mat Watson for Carwow gives us an in-depth look at the Hyundai Ioniq on the video that follows.

Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid Joins The Family From $24,950 24

Hyundai is gunning for the Toyota Prius with its new Ioniq, and it’s doing so with a more varied range of powertrain options.

Already offered in standard hybrid and all-electric variants, the Korean automaker is now rolling out its dedicated electrified vehicle as a plug-in hybrid as well.

The PHEV packs the same 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine as the plug-less version, Rated at 104 horsepower, it comes mated to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and paired with an electric motor good for another 60 hp or so – a significant increase over the existing hybrid’s 43-hp electric motor.

Exact specifications are apparently still to be confirmed, but Hyundai has already released pricing and energy ratings for the US market. The Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid starts at $24,950 and peaks at $28,300 for the Limited version. (For reference, the standard Ioniq Hybrid started the 2017 model year at $22,200, and the Ioniq Electric at $29,500.)

Regardless of trim level, buyers can expect 29 miles of all-electric range, 650 miles of combined range, and EPA-estimated ratings of 52 miles per gallon (using both motors) and 119 MPGe on electric power alone.
