We finally have the official EPA efficiency and range ratings for the 2020 Hyundai IONIQ Electric. Without further ado, let’s see them.

The 2020 Hyundai IONIQ Electric is not as efficient as the outgoing model and now the Tesla Model 3 is the most efficient electric car available.
However, the new 2020 model gets a more powerful motor (100 vs 88 kW) and more range due to more battery capacity (38,3 vs 28 kWh). The on-board charger is now also more powerful (7,2 vs 6,6 kW). The biggest down side when compared to the outgoing model is the lower charging rates at DC fast chargers and it now takes 54 minutes instead of the previous 23 to fast charge 80 % of the battery.
The Hyundai IONIQ Electric always remind me of what a Toyota Prius EV would be if Toyota finally embraced electric cars and decided to launch it. A super efficient electric car that doesn’t need a big, heavy and expensive battery to have decent range.
