Then, about a month before the OFFICIAL start of sales, they finally announced when it would be sold, where, and what the price would be. Two weeks ago I went to my local (California) Hyundai dealer and they did NOT have an all-electric model and could not tell me when they would have one, even though they re (officially) on sale in the entire U.S.
My point initially was in reference to 'being treated as fools"
Hyundai, whether US or Canada or elsewhere, seems to have a very messed up process of introducing the Ioniq.
Bottom line appears to be people are NOT happy with being unable to get information or the car. With all the powerful ways to communicate today you'd think Hyundai would take a simple and direct approach - be open about what is happening.
Sad thing is Hyundai is not the only manufacturer who plays odd games/strategies with new product introductions that are messy, frustrate customers and have unsatisfactory results for everyone.
