Surely not at that price?  Using the car configurator in the UK, the top price comes out at $40,972

I personally wouldn’t buy a new car myself due to depreciation, however I did order an Ioniq EV in early October - due for delivery in February at the moment!

I’d rate it as the second best electric vehicle i’ve ever driven (losing out to the p100d), and i’ve driven almost every EV going.

that’s the price I saw on their website… here it is https://www.hyundai.com/au/en/cars/blue-drive/ioniq/electric

 

how did you calculate this price?$40,972

 

can you give me the link please to check it?

Complete waste of money!!!

The footprint on the planet left over from these products is going to be horrendous.

The manufacturing and then also the battery disposal  is horrific!!!

Its cleaner, cheaper to buy a new petrol or diesel vehicle.

We have been ill advised regarding Electric/HYBRID Technology.

I work in the motor trade, this all about political soundbites and developing a new market for short term profiteering for major manufacturing.

If we take our health and planet protection  seriously  don’t believe the hype of this new technology .Better still buy a nice low mileage second hand petrol or diesel vehicle from a decent car dealer if there is such a thing.

You are looking at the Australian web site so the prices are in AUS dollars not USD

@NPS  Do you have proof showing EV’s are not helping the planet? In regards of production. A lot of car manufactures now produce EV’s on the same line as Petrol and (Icky)Diesel. EV’s are the future and will replace petrol/Diesels even if people do not like the idea.

Battery disposal? Again, manufactures are re-purposing EV batteries and turning them into battery storage for homes. EV’s are capable of offering power to the grid when demand is high via V2G :grin:

I personally am baffled how people cannot see the benefit of EV’s :thinking:

@NPS - Volkswagen are saying otherwise.

As @ITGeek123 says, people are reusing EV Batteries, and as the production scales up we’ll see greater efficiencies.

It’s very short termist to compare 130 years of internal combustion engine development to the development of the electric car, which has only been serious since the mid 90’s.

My Ioniq will ONLY be powered by renewable energy, so the impact of my vehicle vs a petrol one is the creation of a battery vs. 400kg of engine parts, petrol every journey, oil every year… only one winner there.

 

Let’s not also forget how much energy is required to refine the final product that petrol and diesel owners put into their vehicle…
