Neither government agency has tested the Ioniq Electric during its current life cycle. The NHTSA hasn’t tested its hybridized siblings either. The IIHS, however, has tested both hybrids, awarding them both 2019 Top Safety Pick status, with best available ‘Good’ scores all around.
We’re particularly disappointed with the lack of advanced safety features on the base model Ioniq Electric, and in particular, the fact that they aren’t available optionally. The Ioniq Electric Limited gets a standard array of top safety features that include blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane change assist, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control with start/stop, dynamic bending headlights, driver attention warning, and high-beam assist with the HID headlights.
