The Hyundai Ioniq Offers Value, Flexibility for the Future

The evolution of Hyundai from the sidelines to a top tier competitor has happened mostly in the past decade due to smart product planning and relentlessly demanding internal standards.

The Ioniq is part of the well set table that Hyundai has established in recent years to address a marketplace of often contradictory mixed signals. With established nameplates like Elantra, Sonata, Sante Fe and Tucson, as well as hot new models like the Kona small crossover, the latest feature rich Palisade Mid-Size SUV, and the new small urban crossover Venue … the Ioniq is a flexible solution to electrification.

Sporting the current eye-pleasing Hyundai sedan design, the Ioniq is first and foremost a comfortable and practical little sedan that is offered as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid and ultimately as a full battery electric.

The plug-in hybrid Ioniq as tested, with regular plug-ins and short hop commuter and family errands, mileage tops 52 mpg combined while delivering an energetic combined gas and electric 139 horsepower.

Priced from $23,350 to $29,350, qualifying for the $4,543 Federal hybrid tax credit, the Hyundai Ioniq is a compelling value choice in the segment.
