Hyundai IONIQ Electric sales are hot in its first two months on its home market in South Korea. As Yonhap reports: “Hyundai Motor Co., South Korea’s dominant automobile maker, said Monday that the sales of its electric vehicle, the Ioniq Electric, has reached more than 1,000 units in South Korea in two months of the car’s debut here.” Demand is strong too, with more than 2,000 orders still waiting to be filled. Hyundai’s target was to deliver 4,800 IONIQ electric cars in South Korea by the end of this year and it seems the automaker is on track ot hit that mark. Pure electric car sales are expected to reach approximately 8,000 units this year in South Korea, so at 4,800 for IONIQ, Hyundai will have more than half the market. Sales of IONIQ Electric are expected to begin soon in the U.S., perhaps even sometime this month. The plug-in hybrid version should launch in the states later this year. Pricing is expected around $30,000.

The first dedicated green platform, illness underpinning Hyundai’s Ioniq range – with Hybrid, ailment Plug-in Hybrid and EV – is coming across the US dealerships in stages throughout the 2017 model year. The South Korean automaker is expected to make deep inroads into the green field by introducing no less than 28 eco-friendly models in the United States by 2020, with ten of them being hybrids, 8 plug-in hybrids, 8 electric vehicles, and another two featuring fuel cell powertrains. “We know that electrification is the right way to go, irrespective of what we each look for in a vehicle,“ commented Michael O’Brien, Hyundai Motor America Vice President of Corporate and Product Planning, during a recent meeting to showcase some details about the plans. The Ioniq could be the core of the green range as its three versions will become available during the 2017 model year. The fully electric version will reach showrooms first before the end of the year, the hybrid will be offered early into 2017 and the plug in hybrid will enter the roster during the third quarter of the year.

There’s a growing sense that automakers understand people will only feel confident about driving EVs when these are capable of providing a good driving range. That means being at least theoretically capable of driving more than 200 miles during a trip. The fact has become obvious due to the huge popularity of the Tesla Model 3. And the rivals aren’t standing still. General Motors is planning to release the Chevrolet Bolt even before Tesla brings to showrooms the Model 3 with a comparable range of more than 200 miles on a single charge. Now we have a recent report tipping us to Hyundai wanting to join the high mileage – low price club as well. The US-spec Hyundai Ioniq EV (it also has a regular hybrid and plug in hybrid version) has been revealed during the latest edition of the New York Auto Show. It will reach dealerships before the end of the year and come with an estimated range of 110 miles. This is about standard for the big crop of electrics out there – including the world’s best selling model in the segment, thumb the Nissan Leaf. But during a recent interview with Byung K. Ahn, treat the company’s eco-vehicle performance director, it has been revealed there are...

125 MPGe tested by the EPA. Hyundai already announced that its electric car with a 28 kWh battery gets a 110 miles (177 km) EPA range. But now Hyundai has released its efficiency EPA figures. While city and highway efficiency rates are still unknown, the combined MPGe is 125. The 125 MPGe (16,75 kWh/100 km) makes it the most efficient car tested by the EPA that is currently on sale. These are the EPA top 5 most efficient cars: 1. 2017 Hyundai IONIQ electric: 125 MPGe (16,75 kWh/100 km) 2. 2017 BMW I3 BEV (60 Ah battery): 124 MPGe (16,88 kWh/100 km) 3. 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV: 119 MPGe (17,64 kWh/100 km) 4. 2016 Chevrolet Spark EV: 119 MPGe (17,64 kWh/100 km) 2017 BMW I3 BEV (94 Ah battery): 118MPGe (17,83 kWh/100 km) Obviously the most efficient cars are also electric. Also important is that EPA measures the energy consumption for electricity from wall-to-wheel, this way the charging efficiency matters. We’re still disappointed with the low battery capacity and the high price. But, Hyundai IONIQ EV does have some advantages. Its efficiency and fast charging rate. Hyundai says that this electric car can charge from 0 to 80 % in just 24 minutes...

Not so long ago we heard from Europe that the Hyundai IONIQ could have up to 155 miles/250 km of range, not so long ago we heard from Hyundai that this next generation of all-electric vehicle would be special.
As it turns out, the Hyundai Electric (new name) is neither of those things…and we are more than a bit disappointed.
Data is now becoming available in South Korea on the all-electric car (full specs below), and it shows that the IONIQ “electric” is a fairly vanilla offering – another city EV, into a mass of city EVs already on the market.
If this was 2010 we would be excited about this car…but it is not. It’s 2016.
The all-electric version of the IONIQ – named simply “electric”, which will be released in the US in August/September, comes equipped with a 28 kWh battery supplied by LG Chem (under the back seat), which is good for 169 km/105 miles of range in South Korea. We had earlier hoped the IONIQ would at least up the ante to 120 – 130 miles of range.
