I have a pretty good idea WHY we have bought our Ioniq's; there are numerous threads discussing that. I am curious about how you researched it before deciding to buy/lease it.
Having had a Clutch fail on my Skoda Octavia after only 4000miles, I looked for a new car
I felt the time was right to have a serious look at BEV cars
Looked at various Brands
As a DIYer I wanted a car that I could carry things like bags of cement timber etc.
Look at Renault, battery rental put me off
BMW cost more than I wanted to spend
Toyota did not do a pure electric
Tesla too expensive
Mitsubitsi no pure electric
Left with Nissan Leaf or Hyundai Ionic
Did not consider VW after my Skoda Clutch Failure and diesel scandle
I then looked at various forums and video reviews,and decided the Ioniq was exactly what I required
Next problem, no Hyundai electric dealer within 100miles (see attachment), but a dealer in Plymouth (30miles away) had a Hybrid Ionic demonstrator
Had a look and was very impressed.
Went back to my local Hyundai Non electric dealer, who is within walking distance from me, and who said as his team had been trained by Hyundai to handle the Ioniq EV and had the required charging points installed.
I ordered a Premium EV in Blue in March, nominal delivery date given as June 1st to satisfy the paperwork requirements, latest update Hyundai are stepping up production and will make extra UK shipments in July,August and September, I have been told I should get my order by September.
Just waiting for my Boat to come in (to Tilbury!)
