Re: Canadian Availability

Hyundai is taking people for fools and looks like they don't care about consumers by not saying a word!! I don't agree. Hyundai appears to be operating under old assumptions on new car introductions and a false/miss informed view of the Canadian interest in EVs. They appear to have conflicting view...

Re: Canadian Availability

Damper? This is not about excitement rather it is about losing sales and trust in Hyundai /dealerships You'd think companies would realize that authentic honesty and full disclosure is much better than what they've done in the past of carefully managed announcements, rollouts and silence when somet...

If you don't live in north america, it doesn't matter. I'm assuming you don't , because if you did - well, then you'd already know.

Re: No more 12 Volt Battery

Most (?all?) EVs (hybrids & BEVs) use a traditional (heavy) lead/acid 12V battery to power the accessories (dash, power windows, door locks) and to start the gas engine (if it has one). The Ioniq does not- it uses (a portion of) the Li_Ion battery pack that it already has, AND has the possibilit...

Re: Cash incentives double for electric car buyers

The Solo costs $19,888 CAD (US$15,000) before any rebate or tax credit.

And yes, it is a trike (three wheels). It also only transports ONE person.

Re: Maintaining your EV yourself

Look in the manual - it should be available on-line. Most EVs have very little regular maintenance, besides consumables (tires, windshield wipers, etc). Depending on how (if) the battery temperature is regulated, you might need to drain/replace the battery 'thermal management system' coolant every 3...

Re: Hyundai IONIQ VS Bolt EV

Aside from personal preference, if anyone is seriously considering the Bolt EV or the IONIQ Electric, then they will look at things like: 1) Cost for range. Obviously the Bolt has a 238 mile range, and the IONIQ is around 110, so if they cost the same then the IONIQ will not do very well 2) Heating...
