Just contrated Ioniq EV 2017

Thu Mar 09, 2017 7:49 am

Hello, I'm newbie on this forum.
15 minutes before, just contracted Ioniq EV, 2017 version. :D

Black color with Bronze detail,
Safety options, ECM mirror.

I was rent Ioniq EV about 751km, in South Korea.
I felt it is really affordable and enough to commute.
average 8.4Kwh/km.

Also, Jejusoul's posts were very useful while considering EV. Thank you Jejusoul!



But, It takes about 2 month till I receive a car.
Such a long.. :|

Good for you. Must be very exciting - 2 months is a long wait when you are excited to get a new toy:) Happy Driving

That's very exciting! Two months will be a long time to wait...

You were obviously very impressed with the Ioniq that you drove in South Korea.

Keep us posted - we'd like to hear about your experiences when you get your new car!

2 months isn't too long considering they were only going to start selling April 1 - you're only one month beyond that for your IONIQ.

Where are you located?

Waiting 2 month 8 days and counting.
and there is no updates due to production delay. :?

I've talked with Hyundai about delaying, they said

Me: "Why does it take so long?"
Hyundai: "Parts are difficult to supply on time"
Me: "I think I've heard exactly same thing about 2 month and 8 days ago."
Hyundai: "We do not make all of parts"
Me: "It's you who makes a car in two months. Did you promise not to do it?"
Hyundai: "..."
Me: "Do you have anything else to say?"
Hyundai: "Sorry"

Such a productive conversation.

In which country are you trying to buy? (You mentioned earlier that you rented one in South Korea.)

I contracted at South Korea.

Finally, -after all the difficulties- I got a date when I get a vehicle.
June 20th.

And one difficulty remains.
The government will pay for installing and purchasing a dedicated charger.
However, because the house is apartment and pay in monthly, the parking space must be secured so that a dedicated charging can be performed.

A possible solution is that IF new electric line must be installed, a special electric switch (off/on) can be installed behind a locked door to control power to the charger. Then only someone with a key to the lock box can turn on the electricity to the charger.

There are also "chargers" that require an electronic card to activate them, that might be installed. The charger could ten be shared between 2or 4 or 6 people, who each have a key. A reserved parking place (or two, next to each-other) for charging must be designated.

In the United States, ChargePoint sells units made for shared use, for installation in apartment complexes :
