I recently found a 2018 hybrid with around 1000 miles on the clock. Thinking about buying it. Might this be an issue for the battery since it was used so lightly? If so is there any way for me or the dealership to test it’s health and arrive at a more informed decision?

I wouldn't expect the battery to be an issue. The worst things for a lithium ion battery are being left at 100% state of charge for a long period of time, or at a near-zero state of charge for a long period of time. Since an Ioniq Hybrid keeps this battery somewhere between 25 and 75 percent state of charge in normal use, it won't have been parked up in either of the danger zones. If anything, it's probably healthier than other cars the same age that have been in constant use.

Thanks both -- I'll look into obtaining the SOH information and hopefully it shows that the car wasn't stored either totally charged or totally depleted for too long.
