New Hyundai Ioniq 2016: engines, tech and full details | Auto ExpressNo official details have been revealed on the pure EV’s range as of yet, but Hyundai executives did drop some big clues at the car’s launch event. “For range, Ioniq is also well beyond [the Kia] Soul,” continued Yang. And Ki-Sang Lee, Hyundai’s senior vice president, head of eco-friendly tech centre, added: “Our driving range on our EV is bigger than our competitor that starts with an N,” [clearly referring to the Nissan Leaf]. Given that the Soul’s claimed range is 132 miles and the Leaf’s 155, the Ioniq’s could be around the 160 mile mark.
You could be right, but at the same time they really pushed that 200 mile range hard so it would look really bad if they didn't actually meet it comfortably.Is the range of the Bolt a documented reality? I am not interested in the Bolt and have not followed it, but isn't the range expectation just what GM said?
Chances are they're going to target its marketing as a go anywhere, no range anxiety, type of vehicle. This will become even more important with the bigger they go since SUV's are more likely to be driven on road trips.I read that VW is aiming to build a 300 mile range Ev, so the arms race is on.
