Hyundai IONIQ Price Revealed For Austria

Sun Aug 07, 2016 8:24 pm

Pricing information for the Austrian release of the Hyundai IONIQ has now been revealed, showing that the local all-electric version of the sedan will run you about €9,000 more than the hybrid will.

Hyundai IONIQPricing information for the Austrian release of the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version of the Hyundai IONIQ has yet to be revealed. As that release won’t occur until the middle of 2017, though, we likely still have awhile to wait for the price. The conventional hybrid and all-electric (EV) versions of IONIQ will be released in the Austrian market in just a few months.

The exact prices are: €24,990 for the hybrid, and €33,990 for the EV.

As far as competition goes, as Push EVs notes, “in Austria the regular Prius starts at €29,990, while the hybrid Auris starts from €23,850. Since the Auris is built in Europe, it can be offered at a better price in this continent. This is why the hybrid Auris is much more popular in Europe than the Prius made in Japan. In (the) Netherlands the soon to be released Toyota Prius Plug-in already (has) a price, it starts at €34,495. Don’t expect the Japanese made hybrids from Toyota (to) be price competitive in Europe. Toyota Auris hybrid and Hyundai IONIQ hybrid will dispute the same buyers in Europe.”

It should be stated here that Hyundai reps have previously revealed that the all-electric IONIQ will likely be getting a battery-pack upgrade within the next few years. Between that promise and a relatively high increase in the upfront price of the EV IONIQ vs the hybrid, it seems unlikely Hyundai is aiming for or will achieve large sales of the EV version in the opening year. Watching the sales figures unfold over the rest of 2016 should be interesting, though.

I read a lot of articles that state North American cars can not break into the market in other continents but in reading through these forums it seems that North American cars are not only sold in Australia parts of Europe and around the world. does anyone have any more clear information on this?

Yes I am confused about that topic as well (Sam) we do read a lot on the barriers between breaking in new automobile markets around the world and then on the other hand we read a lot of how those vehicles are being sold under different names different titles does anyone have a good link to post to outline a bit more how that works?

I've noticed similar incidents too. North American cars kinda get a new branding and are sold across the world. Why do they need the rebranding, I have no idea.

Why is the EV priced that much higher than the Hybrid? Does it cost more to build EVs?

It must be. That is a quite significant difference. That can't be due to different tax or anything.

Being new to this site and just recently looking into the Hyundai ioniq is this price higher or lower than North American Standard costs?

They haven't revealed the price of Hyundai ioniq for North America yet. Welcome to the forum, by the way!
