2020 Hyundai IONIQ Electric is a decent family BEV, but is it good enough to convince buyers to buy it?
The 2nd model evolution of the Hyundai IONIQ Electric from 2020 model year is an interesting BEVs in the mainstream segment, although not a high-volume player (the South Korean manufacturer sold less than 10,000 so far this year).
The current version was noticeably upgraded in terms of battery capacity (38.3 kWh) and range (311 km / 193 miles WLTP), motor power (100 kW) and on-board charger (7.2 kW).
The DC fast charging is not as high as it was, but overall it’s quite a decent and efficient EV, with positive driving experience according to Fully Charged’s review.
It should be appealing for those who are looking for something more spacious than the Hyundai Kona Electric (especially in the rear), but the similarly priced Kona Electric has more range.
The time will tell whether the IONIQ Electric really will play a significant role in the Hyundai’s electrification strategy or it will remain just a foundation for the new Ioniq brand.
