Spotted in Brisbane, Australia, a few days ago by a friend of mine:

Unfortunately I think the Ioniq is struggling in Australia. Very few around and no great interest in EVs other than a rush of catch up sales of Model 3s. THe Kona EV has had a bit of a run but they are way too expensive for us average Joes.
I was hoping the upcoming MG EV might have got the ball rolling but recently released pricing suggests it will be around the $48,000 of the Ioniq. That to me is nuts as who in their right mind would buy a crummy SAIC over a nice Hyundai? Don't get me wrong, I have tremendous respect for their improvement and development but realistically they aint no Hyundai yet....

17 plate Marina Blue Hybrid Sunday 10th November outside Palm Court Cafe , Harrogate . Did a double take at first , wondering if somebody had stolen mine from the car park a mile away .Gave him a thumbs up . Couldn't see if he responded because of the intense sunshine ( in Yorkshire ? :) ) on his windshield . Maybe he was thinking " who's this nutter ? " or studiously avoiding me

Spotted another white Ioniq PHEV (also with winter tires on steel rims) in the parking lot of a Best Buy electronics store. That car looked so much like ours that we joked about making sure that we don’t try to get into the wrong one on our way back. Their lack of a broken passenger-side mirror would have been a clue, though :)

(Still waiting for a replacement mirror to arrive, but that’s a different story.)

Brilliant, thanks for the tip!

“I may be young but I’m not 12.”
☺👍🏿

In contrast, Colbert apparently still is - watch the gimmick near the end of the clip 🙄

I wish they had showed the car model name as most people probably won’t recognize it. Rules about “product placement” ads and/or politicians promoting products? They did show the front, with the Hyundai logo, though. Anyway, one of the coolest interviews ever!

[Edited to remove YouTube link as I’d been scooped on that ☺ ]

Spotted - two Ioniqs in one day...
1) White Ioniq heading north on Hornby & Nelson in Vancouver.
2) Silver Ioniq heading south past Canada Tire Store on Harbourview near Main in North Vancouver.
Sorry, no pics today ;)

Another silver Ioniq at Lillooet heading onto HW 1 west in North Vancouver. Or same as yesterday, who knows silver cars are practically invisible, right? ;)

WOW, I had a very Ioniq day today with 6 Ioniq Spottings! :)

1) Black Ioniq PHEV heading north on Knight St & 48th Ave @ 10:00 AM Washington, USA license plates.
2) White Ioniq (not an EV) heading west on 33rd Ave & Nanaimo St @ 10:10 AM.
3) Black Ioniq EV w/no front license plate heading north on Fraser St and turning left onto Kingsway @ 11:00 AM.
4) Black Ioniq EV parked facing west on Sea Island Way west of Sexsmith Rd @ 12:15.
5) Silver Ioniq Hybrid heading west on 12th Ave & Granville St @ 12:30.
6) Grey Ioniq (not an EV) heading west on 1st Ave & Clark Drive @ 1:16.

I probably saw 30 Teslas, but this is a personal record for Ioniqs by a long shot for me. It would seem that Ioniq may be becoming an almost popular car around Vancouver. :giggle:

6, that is amazing! You will end up with whiplash turning around to look all the time.
