According to Hyundai the much anticipated IONIQ has an electric range of 32 miles (51 km) for the PHEV and 155 miles (250 km) for the EV version.
In worst case scenario those 155 are NEDC miles, only matching the range of the Nissan Leaf with the 30 kWh battery. But if those miles are EPA, the IONIQ EV will be much more desirable.
Regarding the standard hybrid version, it has a 1,5 kWh lithium battery. Not bad considering that the new lithium battery in the 2016 Toyota Prius Eco is only half of that (0,75 kWh).
More information will start to flow since we are approaching the inauguration of the 86th Geneva International Motor Show that will take place from 3rd to 13th March 2016.
