I had never seen an ad for the Ioniq, and I don't recall seeing one at the recent NYIAS, This year's NYIAS had I think a BEV or HEV, but no PHEV (guess you don't need all three versions to get the point).
We have had an Elantra since 2005, and were very happy with its overall costs (initial purchase price, operating costs, and maintenance).
We went to the Hyundai dealer looking to buy the Genesis G90, to replace our global-warmer. None were available. So we looked at the Ioniq, were quite impressed, and bought the PHEV to replace the Elantra. Its an excellent car with terrific range, great MPG, and very comfortable. Especially for the price.
I wonder if the car companies build these cars because they have to, in order to meet Corporate (not a bad thing, BTW), or perhaps California,emissions requirements.
You would think Hyundai would be promoting it like crazy.
