Full article at:Hyundai has unveiled a new Ioniq Electric trim option — dubbed “I” — in South Korea. The intent is to increase the rate of electric vehicle adoption, according to recent reports.
So, why would the new trim option increase the rate of electric vehicle (EV) adoption? Because it’s relatively cheap, only running buyers 18.4 million won (~$16,300) after government incentives there are taken into account.
Before you ask, no, it’s not clear yet if the new trim will end up being offered in the US and Europe as well. Though, if it does end up being offered in those markets, then sales there will presumably see a nice uptick.
Not much more than that.
Purely a guess on my part, but I'm thinking that it's the EV's equivalent of the Blue trim level of the Hybrid.
