Re: Hyundai's Ioniq became top-selling electric vehicle in Netherlands last month

Those are pretty impressive sales figures... the European markets seem more open to the change than the North American markets.

Re: Why electric cars are only as clean as their power supply

That's a really interesting perspective. I wonder how the emissions compare in terms of a tank of gas and coal-generated electricity to travel the same distance. There's a picture on that site of an EV under a carport made of solar panels. Maybe that's the way to go... plug your car into its chargin...

Better mileage than Prius

The base hybrid version of the Ioniq is rated at 58 miles per gallon, which is the highest rating of any car without a plug, and is 2 mpg better than the Prius.

Ioniq is Greenest Vehicle

The Ioniq won the award for being the Greenest Vehicle from The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). Not only that but the Ioniq earned the best score in the history of the list. Pretty good accomplishment when it also has a low price! http://insideevs.com/hyundai-ioniq-electric...

Comparative charging costs

Interesting info in the Car and Driver review - "The EPA figures that the Ioniq Electric will need $0.81 of juice to cover 25 miles compared with $0.92 for the Bolt and $0.97 for a Nissan Leaf. " http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/2017-hyundai-ioniq-electric-first-drive-review

Re: Anyone actually considering the subscription for the EV?

This may partially answer your question. On cnet.com they say the program " includes all maintenance and reimbursement for charging costs for 36 months and up to 50,000 miles". https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/auto/2017-hyundai-ioniq/preview/ Not sure how they handle the reimbursement though...

Availability of Ioniq models

According to cnet.com the hybrid is appearing in dealerships now, while the plug-in hybrid won’t be available until the last few months of 2017. The electric model will be available in April 2017 but only in California at this point. https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/auto/2017-hyundai-ioniq/preview/

2017 Ioniq

There was a great review of the 2017 Ioniq in the Globe and Mail. Very informative! It will be available as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or pure electric, with pricing that is “highly provocative”. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-drive/reviews/new-cars/review-2017-hyundai-ioniq-is-a-normal-compact-...
