Holy SHIT! That is CHEAP! The Ioniq EV is going to absolutely rape LEAF sales in CA at that price! (Yes, I sound like a company shill, but DAMN!!! that's CHEAP!)
The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid starts at $23,035
Or, choose a fully electric Ioniq for $30,035.

A 124-mile EPA-range EV for $30K. The LEAF doesn't have a chance (unless they drastically drop prices, OR quickly come out with increased range, or both). I had heard elsewhere that the Ioniq EV will only be offered in CA and OR, however (hybrid model available across the U.S.).
The plug-in Hybrid is rumored to have 31 miles all-electric range. That's (just barely) enough for me! I may have just found my next car - an Ioniq PHEV as my "around town" vehicle, which is ALSO my "oops I need to drive 300 miles today" vehicle. I already have a pure electric for doing those 30-85-mile trips ...
