Hyundai Stories April 21

After our Electrek Review of the 2017 Hyundai IONIQ Electric, we were quite impressed with the car – especially with the aggressive $29,500 price before incentive. And now the company is launching a new ‘unlimited subscription’ program for its first all-electric vehicle that could reduce the entry price even more.

The only problem is that Hyundai is shaping up the Ioniq Electric to be a compliance car in the process. expand full story

Hyundai Stories April 6

As of late, Hyundai has shown several signs of moving away from fuel cell hydrogen and investing more into battery-powered electric vehicles. For example, the Korean automaker recently confirmed plans for a new platform for long-range EVs.

Now it sounds like this new platform could also make use of a next generation battery technology.  expand full story

Last month I had the opportunity to travel to beautiful Durham, North Carolina on Hyundai’s dime to check out the new IONIQ EV and hybrids. The IONIQ, you’ll recall, is a 3 car strategy from Hyundai aimed at the high-efficiency vehicle market traditionally dominated by Toyota’s Prius line.

Though the Prius-beating 58 mpg and nifty new 12V battery replacement technology in the IONIQ Hybrid was impressive, it’s the IONIQ Electric we’re all here to talk about. I spent the bulk of my time driving the EV – and boy was I pleasantly surprised…

Hyundai Stories March 30

Hyundai, the third largest automaker in the world by volume, has so far been too entrenched in fuel cell hydrogen cars to significantly invest in battery-powered electric vehicles. The Ioniq Electric was its first major deviation from its effort in zero-emission cars and it has so far been well-received. We have a full review coming soon.

The Korean automaker seems now ready to invest more in electric vehicles. An executive confirmed that they are working a new all-electric platform that will enable several long-range models in different segments. expand full story

Hyundai Stories February 14

As we recently reported, Hyundai is about to launch the all-electric version of its new IONIQ vehicle in the US. The Korean automaker has now confirmed pricing and it’s a lot more competitive than anticipated. The vehicle will start at an MSRP of just $29,500.

After electric vehicle incentives, the car could technically be sold for less than $20,000 in certain markets – making it highly competitive in its segment. expand full story

The all-electric version of the Hyundai IONIQ (it’s also available in PHEV and HEV) is reportedly finally coming to the US this week after deliveries in Korean and Europe last year and being fairly well-received around the world. expand full story

Hyundai Stories January 18

While Hyundai is one of the biggest automakers still pushing for fuel cell hydrogen and they admitted that they “are only making electric plug-ins until hydrogen fuel cell vehicles take hold”, the EV market is still going to take those new electric cars until the Korean automaker realizes that battery-powered vehicles make more sense.

The IONIQ Electric is a great entry in the all-electric space for Hyundai and despite its view of EVs, the company is now quickly moving forward with a longer range all-electric SUV. A prototype was spotted for the first time and the vehicle is expected to hit the market as soon as next year. expand full story

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its official fuel economy rating for the new 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric, the Korean automaker’s first all-electric car, and it took the first spot as the most efficient car rated by the agency – dethroning the BMW i3. expand full story

Hyundai Stories November 16, 2016

Earlier this week we reported that it looks like Hyundai is moving away from fuel cell hydrogen in its zero-emission vehicle development, the Korean automaker further demonstrated it yesterday by announcing its plans for “14 new alternative-fuel models” with most of them being electric. expand full story

Hyundai Stories November 14, 2016

Hyundai was one of those automakers entrenched in fuel cell hydrogen technology in its effort to develop zero-emission cars, which is why the IONIQ is so important. It’s the Korean automaker’s opportunity to test the market and sees if it should divest from fuel cells and invest in electric powertrains.

The problem is that Hyundai fell behind in EV development and it is now releasing a model equivalent to the last generation of EVs (LEAF, i3, e-Golf etc.) in term of range. But it could still find a market in Europe and in its home country, South Korea, for the next year. expand full story
