The 2016 Hyundai IONIQ Electric went under the radar a little, although you can't help but think this was a deliberate move by the manufacturer to normalise electric vehicles. After all, the range includes an all-electric, plug-in hybrid EV (PHEV) and a mild hybrid with a petrol engine. Rather than boast about its all-eletric credentials as a USP, the IONIQ simply tried to be a good car first and a zero emissions vehicle second.
It's a good combination - for anyone wanting zero emissions, without compromising on practicality, the original Hyundai IONIQ still offers a superb package and its attractive styling also helps by offering a low (0.24) drag coefficient. The 20.8kWh battery offers an approximate range of 124 miles between charges - plenty for the daily commute and weekend driving - while the Type 2 charging port means you can charge overnight at home in around four hours. It also includes a CCS port for rapid charging which will come in handy for longer journeys.
