Hyundai is brand new to the hybrid, plugin-hybrid, and EV market and they're starting out with a novel approach. Hyundai will release the Ioniq in three forms (eventually), a hybrid version, plugin-hybrid, and fully electric model. The hybrid is available today and is a decent competitor to the Toyota Prius if you're willing to take a chance on a new entrant into the market. Hyundai currently states on their website that the plugin-hybrid (PHEV) will be available for sale in the fall of 2017. However, the electric version has been delayed already, so it's a bit uncertain at the moment. The EV version of the Ioniq is arguably the best "city-EV" on the market but in my opinion, still falls into the first generation class of electric vehicles. With only 124mi range (estimated) and 120hp, it won't eliminate your range anxiety nor give you that "Tesla Smile" from the snappy acceleration. Overall I think this is a decent first attempt by Hyundai to enter the EV market and I am hopeful that the market is continuing to grow. Perhaps their next version will be up to par with the newer 200+mi EVs hitting the market in 2017 and 2018. // Join the Convo Online fb https://fb.com/teslanomics tw https://twitter.com/teslanomicsco web http://teslanomics.co // Sources http://www.digitaltrends.com/cars/hyundai-ioniq-electric-hybrid/ https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/auto/2017-hyundai-ioniq/preview/ http://www.digitaltrends.com/cars/hyundai-ioniq-electric-hybrid/#/2 http://www.hyundainews.com/us/en/media/presskits/45161/photos // Music Buddha by Kontekst https://soundcloud.com/kontekstmusic Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/b6jK2t3lcRs Always (Vlog Music) by Dj Quads https://soundcloud.com/aka-dj-quads Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/jIiE1ezj4cs Fresh Start by Joakim Karud https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported— CC BY-SA 3.0 Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/XN-tBgJ5CVw Like Apollo by jimmysquare https://soundcloud.com/jimmysquare Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/oIpjGVBY9AM Moldy Lotion by Light-foot https://soundcloud.com/light-foot Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/GSSdXximD7c Rock Angel by Joakim Karud https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported— CC BY-SA 3.0 Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/K8eRXvLL7Wo Wild Flower by Joakim Karud https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported— CC BY-SA Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/AQWSIi1QU-o Life Is by Cosimo Fogg (201) https://soundcloud.com/cosimo-fogg Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/9MXUHYGvBVY // What is the Hyundai Ioniq?
