Official Pricing Of 2017 Hyundai Ioniq EV, Hybrid, PHEV Models
The all-new Hyundai Ioniq EV and hybrid models were expected to arrive in the US last summer, but ended up having their release dates pushed back a little bit.
The good news for those of you awaiting their arrival is that they are both starting to hit showrooms now.
It appears as though the extra wait was worth it, as Hyundai have come in aggressively with the pricing on both the 2017 Ioniq Hybrid and 2017 Ioniq EV.
Let’s get a closer look at the pricing for both.
Hyundai Ioniq EV price
|Electric||88kW electric motor||FWD||$29,500|
|Limited||88kW electric motor||FWD||$32,500|
The all-electric Ioniq EV – 2017 model year – comes in two distinct trim levels: the Electric and Limited.
The base model comes with a starting price of $29,500 before and $835 destination fee.
The $7,500 federal tax credit essentially drops the starting price down to $22,000.
The Limited sits at the top of the range, and starts at $32,500 before destination fee and federal tax credit.
That pricing puts the Ioniq at the top of the class when compared to the competition.
It also delivers excellent range, delivering 135 miles in the city and 110 miles on the highway, putting the range at a combined 124 miles.
Taking those figures and converting them to MPGe, you get a rating of 136 MPGe, which makes it the most efficient model available in the US.
If you ever needed a reason to buy the Hyundai Ioniq as opposed to the competition, you need only look at the pricing and range numbers and compare it to the competition like the Fiat 500e, Nissan LEAF and Ford Focus Electric.
Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid price
|Blue||1.6L GDI 4-cylinder||FWD||$22,200|
|SEL||1.6L GDI 4-cylinder||FWD||$23,950|
|Limited||1.6L GDI 4-cylinder||FWD||$27,500|
The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid comes with 3 different trim levels: Blue, SEL, and Limited.
The base Hyundai Ioniq Blue costs $22,200 plus $835 destination fee.
The Ioniq SEL starts at $23,950 plus destination, while the range-topping Ioniq Limited MSRP comes in at $27,500 plus destination.
Under the hood, the Ioniq Hybrid comes with a 32 kW electric motor that delivers the equivalent of 43-hp and 125-lb.-ft. of torque.
The battery that give the motor the power it needs comes with a 1.56 kWh capacity.
This is all mated to a 1.6-liter Atkinson cycle engine with a fuel economy rating of 57/59/58 mpg city/highway/combined.
Hyundai Ioniq PHEV MSRP
The final member of the Ioniq family is the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model that delivers about 32 miles of range in electric mode.
This model has undergone some delays, and will hit showrooms later on this summer.
Given the pricing for the other two models in the Ioniq family, we are excited to see what the pricing will be for this one.
Big news for EV, hybrid car buyers
The arrival of a new eco-friendly model may not seem like big news on the face of it, but Hyundai are delivering a first in that they are offering three different powertrains in one chassis.
That is more than enough to garner some real interest among the buying public.
The demand for eco-friendly vehicles is very much on the rise, and with so many different options in a single model, not to mention how fun it is too drive, the Hyundai Ioniq is sure to be a hit among those looking for an efficient way to reduce their carbon footprint.
