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

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

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 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

The timing of the release of these tests with the recent publicized fatal accident on Tesla Autopilot is only coincidental, says Motor Trend. The popular car publications released an interesting report with in-depth comparisons between driver assist and semi-autonomous systems available in vehicles from Tesla, Mercedes, Hyundai and Cadillac.

While Motor Trends doesn’t out right declare a winner, the results of the most important tests clearly points toward Tesla’s Autopilot has the most convenient system, but the publication appears to have edited the piece in reaction to the recent fatal accident in a Model S on Autopilot. expand full story

You remember the Hyundai IONIQ? The South Korean automaker’s one-car platform to release three models with different electric powertrains, IONIQ Hybrid (HEV), IONIQ Plug-in (PHEV) and IONIQ Electric (BEV). It created a lot of buzz earlier this year with hopes that the all-electric version could compete with the Chevy Bolt, Tesla Model 3 and other long-range electric cars coming to market in the next year.

We were disappointed when it was actually revealed that the IONIQ Electric will actually have a 28 kWh battery pack allowing for an EPA-rated of about 110 miles. Now Hyundai reveals the first pricing for the vehicle in Europe, starting with the UK, further confirming that the vehicle will actually be competing with the Nissan LEAF. expand full story

Just last month, we published an article arguing that automakers entrenched in fuel cell hydrogen vehicles, like Hyundai, Toyota and Honda, appear to be succumbing to physics and finally warming up to battery-powered vehicles.

Now Hyundai is coming out saying that it is only temporary. expand full story

I think we are witnessing the start of a new (but long overdue) trend this year. The few established automakers still pushing fuel cell hydrogen vehicles appear to be warming up to battery-powered electric vehicles instead. Honda, Toyota and Hyundai, arguably the automakers most stuck on hydrogen, all announced new electric vehicle programs in the past few weeks. expand full story
