Hyundai IONIQ electric gets its first price drop
France is first, who’s next?
Usually France gets the highest prices for electric cars, since automakers are known to use the generous government incentives to increase their profits instead of dropping the prices.
While in Germany the electric IONIQ’s price starts at 33.300 € and in Austria it starts at 33.990 €, in France it was priced at 35.850 €. But now Hyundai decided cut the price by 3.000 € in France, making it drop to 32.850 € – before any government incentive. Government incentives for buying electric cars in France can be as high as 10.000 €.
Hyundai IONIQ electric seems to be a great electric car, but its small battery capacity is disappointing for such expensive car. Hyundai is more interested in hybrids and compete with Toyota, that’s why also in France the IONIQ hybrid costs 23.100 €, that’s 9.750 € less than the much simpler and easier to build electric version.
What do you think? What’s the fair price for the Hyundai IONIQ electric until it gets a battery upgrade?
