Although it isn't the fastest or most exciting electric vehicle on the market, the Hyundai Ioniq Electric's appealing running costs and decent spread of modernities make it a competitive offering. The 134-hp electric motor powers the front wheels and, when fully charged, the Ioniq will manage a range of 170 miles.
Only two trims are offered but both are well-specified. The base SE comes with items such as LED daytime running lights, heated side mirrors, 16-inch wheels, and automatic headlamps. Inside, you'll find cloth-upholstered seats and conveniences like automatic temperature control, an eight-inch touchscreen interface, wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and a six-way manually-adjustable driver's seat. The Limited adds leather upholstery along with a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen interface, a Harman Kardon sound system, a power-adjustable driver's seat, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. Both derivatives get adaptive cruise control and driver attention warning.
There are no optional packages provided for either of the Ioniq Electric models, so buyers looking for some customization may be disappointed. In fact, beyond your choice of exterior and interior color, the Ioniq EV is a case of what you see is exactly what you get.
