Test Drive: Hyundai Ioniq and the “new normal” in electric cars | The Driven
The company wants its new electric range to become a normal choice, and to encourage that it is releasing the car in three versions – hybrid, plug in hybrid and full battery electric.
The only way to tell the difference between the full electric and the hybrids at quick glance is that the full electric Ioniq does not have a grill.
Nargar says the range is to allow for the varying budgets, and comfort zones of their customers. Not everyone wants to go full battery electric. But the data suggests that most do .
Hyundai’s experience overseas so far is that the sales have gone about 50 per cent full electric, 30 per cent plug in, and 20 per cent hybrid.
