Ioniq

Hyundai Ioniq information and reviews

Click here for the official Hyundai site for the Ioniq Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid, and Electric vehicle family. Its eco-friendliness goes past just the powertrain. Sugar cane, volcanic rock, and recycled plastics help to make up many of the interior materials, reducing the need for more new plastic and also reducing weight.

MotorTrend wrote a fairly trechnical article explaining how Hyundai achieved the best Hybrid fuel-efficiency on the market and the most efficient EV on the market. Currently the EV is only available in California but we get the excellent Hybrid here. They also comment how seamlessly the Hybrid and electric propulsion systems work. So if you want to know the how it works and the how well it works, give this article a read.

AutoWeek spent time behind the wheel of the Hybrid and Electric versions (stating the electric will only be in California to start). As for the Hybrid we'll get around here, AutoWeek says it gets great fuel economy, provides excellent driving characteristics, has a roomy interior, and is still a great value.

Kelly Blue Book has a fun video to tell their tale of what they think of the Hyundai Ioniq. They come away impressed. They point out that the Ioniq behaves mainly like a normal car and doesn't try to look like something out of a sci-fi movie to express the fact that it is a hybrid. The interior also isn't out of a sci-fi movie. Check it out if you want a normal car with a comfortable interior that is somewhat fun to drive.

JD Power study: let's face it, having a car that's easy to operate is critical to enjoying the car overall. Read through a number of reviews on this site and you will see a trend that Hyundai has among the highest satisfaction in the area of infotainment. It is no surprise, then, that the Hyundai Ioniq places among the best in class for its multimedia systems.

Wait, did Cars.com just say that you never need to replace the 12-volt battery nor ever jump start the Ioniq? Click here to see why.
