The newest electric vehicles on the market, such as the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Volkswagen ID.4, offer more than 250 miles of range. That’s great for long-distance travel, but it comes by way of large battery packs. And the bigger the pack, the higher the cost.
What if your EV needs could be satisfied by a smaller model without the budget-busting price tag? That’s where the 2021 Hyundai Ioniq Electric starts to make a lot of sense.
The Hyundai IONIQ Electric is the fully electric version of the Ioniq; Hyundai also offers a regular hybrid and plug-in hybrid Ioniq. As for the Electric, its price undercuts those newer EV rivals by thousands of dollars. It’s also more efficient when using electricity, which is like saying it gets better mpg in gasoline terms.
However, its EPA-estimated range of 170 miles on a fully charged battery is among the shortest distances for an EV in 2021.
