Hyundai Ioniq Electric is not as exciting, but presses all the right boxes

Posted on

If you are on the market for an affordable electric car, there are a number of choices, from Nissan Leaf to Volkswagen e-Golf. Hyundai has recently begun to offer its own zero-emission hatchback in the form of the Ioniq Electric model, which joins Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid versions of the same car.

It has a conservative style both inside and outside, which makes an enormous difference to somewhat brilliant BMW i3, but it can fit into three adults in the back, although the middle seat will not be very happy .

Ioniq Electric also has a decent load space that is said to be higher than what you would get in a Volkswagen e-Golf, but a little smaller than the Ioniq hybrid.

CarBuyer recently took a short look at it, finding it as quiet as expected on the road. However, the wind and tire noise at higher speeds may make you forget that you are sitting in an EV.

With regard to technical batteries, the speed of 96 hours per hour (96 km / h) has a decent decade and you will need 4.5 hours to fully charge the battery or up to 12 when using a 3 -pin which allows you to travel for a 199km claimed range. There is also a quick charge option that fills the battery up to 80% in just 30 minutes.

Normally, Hyundai Ioniq Electric is about £ 25,000 ($ 33,885) in the UK after an electric grant from the government, making it more affordable than an e-Golf, but if money is a concern, maybe you want to check Nissan Leaf.
