Dear Hyundai: A thought on marketing the Ioniq

Yesterday, after doing the daily 2 mile walk required by my Cancer Dr. and getting back to where we had parked Trooper, our 2018 Ioniq Blue, my wife and I were approached by a few people who had been reading Trooper's window sticker. After answering their questions pertaining to the magic dust (their words) your engineers must have sprinkled on Trooper that enables him to actually get the claimed average 58 MPG (2 of those people looking at Trooper actually pulled up the attached YouTube video proof of this on their phone - seeing is believing) and, at times, even some +60 mpg miles. There was a moment in our discussion when it occurred to the bystanders that Trooper is a Hybrid and the comment was made that you folks at Hyundai have done an exquisite job of hiding this fact as his "lines" (again - their words) don't show it. After telling them of the smoothness and ease that the Ioniq transitions from ICE to EV, the amount of time that this amazing vehicle is effortlessly making this transition as well as the utilization of things like effortless regenerative braking and the sense of normality found in the ease of transitioning from driving a non-hybrid to driving the worlds most frugal Hybrid in our case, something occurred to me. I cant help but wonder if an exterior little blue LED light display might not be a bad idea. Something that would visually announce to unknowing bystanders/drivers of other cars/trucks/motorcycles = "HEY,, LOOK AT ME,, I AM GIVING MY OWNERS FREE MPG" , via a soft Blue (following with the whole "Blue Drive" scheme) LED light display that engages anytime the battery was being charged or used to power the car.. An announcement of sort that would tell the people around the world as it is being driven that the Ioniq is not just another cool little car but something very very special!! Nothing gaughty,,, something catchy and classic.. Just a thought..

No longer able to tour on my motorcycle and THAT is when "Trooper" - the AWESOME 2018 Hyundai Ioniq Blue came to our rescue!!

Unfortunately the limited supply and huge demand makes this point somewhat moot. They could easily sell double, triple or even quadruple the number of IONIQs if they were available. The 4 to 6 month waiting list is every car manufacturers dream.
