I have been in contact with Hyundai New Zealand on a few occasions since September last year, but it's still too early for them to answer the questions I have. I was wondering if those members in other countries could probe their local Hyundai Head Office with these questions to see what kind of answers they get. The list is shorter than what I emailed Hyundai, as some of my questions were specific to the local market.
- When the Ioniq 2018 model is released with improved traveling distance, will it be possible to upgrade or trade in the battery of the Ioniq 2017 to/for the Ioniq 2018 battery?
- Can the car be programmed to charge at set times or on a schedule to take advantage of off peak electricity rates or solar panel electricity production?
- Can the driver/media/instrument displays be configured for different layouts and content?
- Even though it's irrelevant at the moment, how much would a replacement battery cost (today's money) using the existing battery as a trade in and assuming the trade in battery capacity was low enough to warrant a replacement?
