Hi,

After having driven a Prius plug-in for almost 5 years, I wanted an all-electric car. At first I ignored the Ioniq because of the range. After looking into the Zoe (too small) and every other long-range alternative which have an introduction date 'somewhere in the future', I visited a Hyundai dealer. The premium edition looked like a really nice car, and...there was a boat heading for The Netherlands with an 'unassigned' Marina blue version. The range should be more than enough for most trips, so I couldn't resist.

Last week the car got unloaded from the cargo vessel, but I'm still waiting for the car to arrive at the dealer. So I hope in about twee weeks I can tell you how it drives :)

Hi Marco, welkom hier!

Feel free to ask any question you have!
It seems you were in the same situation as I was, I also had a Prius Plug In, in my case for 4 years.
What are your daily distances?

Can you indicate your info in the Member map thread? Then we can add you to the map.

Welcome to the forums and congratulations. How much range were you looking for and how short does the Ioniq fall from that?

I was really surprised there still was non-reserved Ioniq heading to The Netherlands. I too prepared for a few months waiting time. But I had to choose between black and marina blue. Luckily the blue was the option I wanted :)

My current job is daily 200 km (return trip) and a parking area with 1 charging-point for a few hundred cars. So that one is usually taken. But...due to the traffic I usually go by train. We have relatives living 150 km and 175 km (both single trip) mostly highways and no charge-points in the destination area. So that will be a challenge. But my girlfriend drives about 120 km a day, so I guess it will be here car during weekdays.

Hi Marco, congratulations! In temperatures like today (4 to 10 degr.C) you may be able to drive your 200 km. Today I had to drive unexpectedly 197 km so I didn't drive very fast (80-90 km/h mainly motorway) and had still 30 km left. There were some Fastned stations along the route just in case of emergency, but it wasn't necessary.
