2017 Hyundai Ioniq Figures May Upset Plans For Chevy Bolt

By  | 

The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric is going on sale in the US this week, after it was announced for summer of 2016 but then suffered delays.

Hyundai had said that the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq would be making its way out during winter and February is still winter, so they are not that off target. The vice president of product planning said that they had focused on offering a superb compact electric vehicle that would appeal to the 1.1 people who looked for an EV during 2016 but didn’t buy one.

The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq has some figures that are going to upset the Chevy Bolt as it is said to offer 135.4 miles when in the city, 110 miles on the highway and 124 combined and it comes with a battery of 28kWh. The city efficiency is said to be 150MPGe and highway is 122 MPGe, while combined is 136MPGe.

The figures tell us that the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric is able to beat not only the Chevrolet Bolt to be the most efficient vehicle but it also beats the Toyota Prius Prime.

    Huh??? A car that has half the range will be an upsetter? Clearly you don’t know what EV drivers really want!

    At only ~1/2 the Range of a Chevy Bolt (124 verses Bolts 238 electric miles) & only a 28kWh battery you cannot compare the 2 vehicles.
    The Hyundai is carrying 1/2 the battery weight resulting in 1/2 the range, that’s what gives it the meaningless MPGe edge. Who cares about the meager MPGe difference as NO one in their right would purchase Hyundai’s first electric with only 1/2 the range! Unless you just hate the twice electric range American Chevy, & Tesla’s vehicles?

    Oddly written article. The Ioniq is a car that “…would appeal to the 1.1 people who looked for an EV during 2016” and has exactly half the range of the Bolt, yet somehow “beats” it. Or am I missing something?
