Just wondering what kind of clicks people are putting on their Ioniq's. Like the title says we have had ours now for 10 months and have accumulated 30k already of trouble free motoring.

2 days short of 6 months (March 26, 2018 to Sept. 24, 2018) I hit 30,000 km but 14233 km of that was my summer vacation. My normal yearly average based on the last 7 years is about 24,000 km per year (275 km/week is going to/from work).

Like others have said - you walk past it, the door handle lights up wanting to go for a drive so you do. lol

This car is more comfortable than my 2010 Hyundai Elantra. I ended up with this new car based on my previous problems, new wants and needs.

Got my keys on 5th of april and i am at 57k also doing a 400~500km daily
So far no problems beside some minor degradation and the loss of the "buffer" range. ( fast charging to 196 compared to max achieved 216 in june/might be temp. related)
Less than 20 lvl2 charges done everything else is DC.

I hope you havent lost your buffer range after 57k,and 6 months!! That would be very distressing to me.I hope it is just a weather related issue

I still believe that this small difference between 196 and 216 km indicated range can be explained by the difference in season, and not by a loss of buffer range.

P.S. Can you introduce yourself in the New member section? And add your region and car to your profile?

I am a little over 23K myself since my purchase. So far no issues. The car is perfect. Even my tires are showing little wear still at 8/32. So I am anticipating another 20-30k miles on them.

That's some massive distance you're putting on your vehicle - you're definitely getting the bet out of your EV. Out of interest, how many times a day are you charging to get that 400 to 500 km?

Also, 216 ~~~> 196 is nearly a 10% loss. Even with all the fast charging, I have to believe that the loss is more temp related than degradation. Also, indicated range is not a great way to determine battery health as the vehicle factors in your most recent driving habits/conditions to come up with that estimated range number. Driving habits and conditions can vary wildly from charge to charge.

That would be about 2 full DC charges and opportunity charge in the middle which is turning into almost a full 3rd as winter months rolled in and i run the heater more often. Naturally starting the day with 90%+.
I drive the car for ridesharing so i can't be shy on my heating due to customers.
Also just at 60070km ?
Battery is holding up and yes if there is a proper way to check my battery state i would not mind to post where i stand at the 60000km

Drove out of new car dealership in Muskegon Michigan just under 2 months ago with a brand new 2018 Ioniq Blue. He (the car) looks like a miniature Michigan State Troopers squad car so we named him "Trooper". Couple days later, after finishing making a set of beds for the back or him we headed west! Came home 1 month later with 10k miles on him in time to tour northern Michigan for a fall color tour. Now Trooper is at 12,000 trouble free wonderful miles! Thank you to our Ioniq Forum for letting us be part of the world wide family here, thank you again Hyundai for making such an amazing little vehicle and long live the Ioniq Blue!!

Thanks for the info. Please keep us in the loop. You are going to be one of the highest annual mileage IONIQ users on the forum and your experiences will be of extreme interest to the rest of us.

One last question. Are you using L2 charging over night at all? I ask because you mention starting your day at about 90%. It's generally accepted that Lithium batteries need to charge to 100% at least some of the time so that proper cell balancing is done. I was wondering when you do that? I know that I try to keep my battery between 80% and 20% during daily use, but I always charge it to 100% on Monday mornings before I head to work. I was wondering if you employed anything similar?

I am 6 months, 11k on a 2018 PHEV. Only issue I have had is one of the heater lines in the back window is not working. Everything else has been flawless.

Puc, nice car and trip! And it's very refreshing to NOT see/hear an inanimate object referred to as "she" or "her" for a change. :) BTW, I'm from northern Indiana, so am very familiar with your area of MI.

Ok so a quick update.
Currently sitting at 91650km and on fast charger I get a good 170km(93/94%)of range and another 180ish if charged to 100% as per my range estimator. So I lost a good 50km or less in range(started at 220*) I do spend a lot of time in the car so I lose about half a km per 1000 driven so far.

I basically stopped charging on the lvl2s think it have been almost 2 months since my last charge on lvl2 and even before I hardly did.
I did do one maintenance at 24k and haven't been trough a dealership since then so can't give you any professional tips.
But based on my experience here are a few tips.

Don't go into the red without a good reason. I always got hit in range the worst after such scenarios.
So far I zeroed the battery about over 10times, my dashboard range went --.-- and once I ran the car till it stopped literally.

Something worth mentioning is twice I managed to discharge the 12v battery BUT managed to start back up on my own without boost.
Here is what I did.
1st time I forgot to properly engage the car just hit the start once and fell asleep with the heat on. 4h later I couldn't start it... what I did was after I literally drained the battery from trying to start over and over again to the point where my dashboard start flickering. I just stopped for 2-3h to let the battery recover and managed to start on 1st few attempts.
2nd time was similar issue didn't engage properly but this time I didn't drain it like before. In futile attempts, just let it sit for 30 min or so and started on the 1st attempt. Lesson learned ?

Trully amazing zero maintenance vehicle... cheers and to the next time probably at 200k...
