I took a 2017 in Feb '18 because they didn't have any "HV-blue" in stock. The 17 was certified preowned, had been loaner for 6 months (for Sonatas in for recall service)
Traded 2017 for same HV-Blue, White 2018 end of May. (I had added 4k miles to the 8200 as purchased). Combined price was close to MSRP.
In the 3.5 months since, We have driven 10k miles including to DC, Philly, Toledo, Mackinac bridge, and several times thru central IL to NE WI. Have seen only one (1) on I-75 headed North in central Michigan.
My grandmother would have said, "As rare as hen's teeth."
I think it is a great car. Either Factory isn't shipping to US, sales people don't know what to say or the margin on HV is less than straight ICE. See hundreds of Accents, Elantras, and Sonatas every day. (Some are much older than Ioniq existence.)
Will Hyundai continue the line?
