Hyundai Ioniq is the only car model in the Australian market that offers choices of pure electric, plug-in hybrid and hybrid at the same time. There is not much big difference between the 2021 models and 2020 models. The only noticeable change is that Hyundai has replaced the Summit Gray exterior colour with a new Amazon Gray for the Pure Electric Ioniq.
The following specifications have been confirmed for the Hyundai Ioniq Electric
- The battery size is 38.3kWh that is claimed for a range of 311km, based on WLTP
- It is equipped with a 100kW/295Nm powertrain
- 2kW AC charging capacity and 100kW DC charging capacity
- Supports both Type 2 and CCS2 standards
For the Plug-in Hybrid variant, the battery size is 8.9kWh and it can allow up to 3.3kW AC charging speed. Note that the Plug-in Hybrid does not support fast DC charging and the claimed driving range purely using electricity is 63km.
The price range starts at $39,001 for Ioniq Hybrid and jumps to $53,363 for Ioniq Electric. There is a price increase in the models, but they are still affordable in the fast-expanding EV market. It is not a cheap EV but is still within the budget of families who are willing and able to pay extra to reduce its carbon footprint.
The Ioniq Electric is equipped with many advanced and practical technologies, such as the heated and power-folding side mirrors, automatic dusk sensing headlights and Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility. It also has a glass sunroof that makes you feel more connected to this beautiful world. You can easily control the sunroof using a small button.
In regards to charging, the Ioniq Electric is compatible with both AC and DC charging. For home charging, a dedicated Hyundai Ioniq Car Charger can charge your car at the maximum AC speed. You will get a fully-charged Ioniq in 6 hours. This overnight charging solution will allow you to have a fully-charged car every day that is sufficient to travel in the city.
The Ioniq Electric is compatible with fast DC charging, up to 100kW. The car can be charged from 10% to 80% in 57 minutes using 50kW DC charger, and 54 minutes using 100kW DC charger. This gives you a piece of mind and confidence to enjoy your road trip with the Ioniq. To use the public AC charging stations that are expanding rapidly, you need to have a Hyundai Ioniq charging cable because the majority of the charging infrastructures require you to bring your own cable. If you can have a Type 1 to Type 2 adapter with you, you can unlock 99% of the public charging stations (except Tesla charging stations).
The Ioniq owner will use the portable charger that utilizes a standard 240V power outlet. This will only charge the Ioniq at 10km/hour and thus it is best to put this cable in the boot for emergency situation.
