The Ioniq EV's gray closed front grille was the most noticeable alteration on last year's refreshed model and continues into 2021. It features a scale-like pattern and is bordered with chrome accenting that shoots out to underscore the LED headlights (standard on the top trim) that feature LED daytime running lights and automatic headlight control. These are supported by the recently updated front fascia. Both Ioniq Electric models ride atop 16-inch eco-spoke alloy wheels and feature black side sill moldings and LED taillamps but the Limited gets extra chrome detailing to set it apart.
In comparison with the Ioniq Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid's dimensions, the Ioniq Electric differs only in height, ground clearance, and curb weight. Its overall body length of 176 inches and wheelbase of 106.3 inches are otherwise identical across the board, along with its overall width of 71.7 inches. Its height of 58.1 inches makes it about 1.2 inches taller than the Ioniq Hybrid. The ground clearance works out to 5.9 inches. Both trims have the same curb weight of between 3,371 and 3,488 pounds.

The same five exterior paint colors are available to both trims of the 2021 Hyundai Ioniq Electric. On the SE, the five colors that are available are Electric Shadow, Black Noir Pearl, Stellar Silver, Ceramic White, and Intense Blue. Only Ceramic White adds to the bill at a cost of $350. This color doesn't cost extra on the Limited, though. Although Hyundai indicated that Amazon Gray is a new color this year, it wasn't available as part of the website's collection of colors at the time of writing so it is unclear whether this shade will cost extra or not. That said, we do feel that Intense Blue is the best color in the range.
