Tesla Model 3 vs Hyundai Ioniq Electric : Are these EVs in the same class?

The Tesla Model 3 is yet to be released, or even the configuration options announced, yet other car manufacturers are dying to beat them to the punch with an affordable EV. 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? (wikipedia.org) The Hyundai Ioniq is a mid-size five-door hatchback manufactured and marketed by Hyundai in hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric variants.[1][2] The Ioniq Hybrid debuted in South Korea in January 2016.[3] with the three variants debuting at 2016 Geneva and New York auto shows.[2] The hybrid variant launched in its home market in February 2016,[3] followed by the electric model in July 2016.[4] At the 2017 Washington Auto Show, Hyundai announced the hybrid and EV versions will go on sale in North America by April 1, 2017. The plug-in hybrid version will follow in September, 2017.[5] Each Ioniq variant will be sold in all 50 states, but it will not be available in all Hyundai dealerships.[6] The nameplate Ioniq is a portmanteau of ion and unique.[9] // What is the Tesla Model 3? (wikipedia.org) The Tesla Model 3 is an upcoming all-electric four-door compact luxury sedan produced by Tesla, Inc. It was unveiled on March 31, 2016. Tesla anticipates the Model 3 will deliver an all-electric range of at least 215 miles (346 km), with base model pricing in the US market starting at US$35,000 before any applicable government incentives.[1] Limited Model 3 production is scheduled to begin in July 2017. Production is planned to ramp up to exceed 5,000 vehicles per week at some point in the fourth quarter, and 10,000 vehicles per week at some point in 2018.[3]
