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.


CHAdeMO charging port


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.

It looks great! I canΒ΄t wait to see it at the Hyundai dealer. As far as I know, the Ioniq will have CCS in Europe.
What a terrific idea to have CCS + CHADEMO as an option! Every charger would be yours and you could use CCS in Leaf+Soul crowded areas and go back to CHADEMO on VW/BMW-turf.
Especially interesting as both standards are aiming to go to 100+kW. But I think, this is just wishfull thinking…

Three days later you say on:

“The 28 kWh battery will give IONIQ EV an EPA range of 105 miles.”

So yes 155 miles seems to be NEDC range. Why do you create new pages/articles all the time instead of collecting information on one page, editing your previous speculations and replacing them with new information by the manufacturer?

This would make much more sense and would drastically compress those day to day articles.

Thanks for the suggestion, I understand your point.

But I think that it’s important to keep the history of the blog intact. Without removing or editing any writing.

Regarding electric mobility there are a lot of predictions that failed, even when the information came from official sources. Because automakers change their minds a lot, like Renault saying they would sell the Twingo ZE in 2014, then in 2014 they said they would not sell it because of the lack of interest. Now my sources say that yes, Twingo ZE will come in late 2016 or early 2017. In few hours I can get an email saying that Twingo ZE was definitely canceled, I never know.

I often get good inside sources with contradicting informations, because automakers plans change a lot.
