The best reviewer comment I have found for this car is perhaps the 'IONIQ Electric is well positioned for normal driving'. This advertisement f...

Re: 1750km Test Drive in Ioniq Electric

Here's some shots of the interior. I really like the paddle shifters for changing the regen. The left paddle goes up 0 -> 1 -> 2 -> 3. The right paddle goes down. Level 0 (no regen = coasting) is fantastic for freeway driving. Level 3 (max regen) is fantastic for coming down a steep windy mountain r...

Re: 1750km Test Drive in Ioniq Electric

This set of photos is from a Hyundai Service Center. I turned up just to get a free charge.

I got an upgrade to the Low Volt...
