2018 Hyundai Ioniq EV
What it is: Hyundai introduced the Ioniq for 2017 with gas-electric hybrid and all-electric battery-powered versions. For 2018, the automaker adds a plug-in hybrid variant. All three models are compact hatchbacks.
The hybrid uses a 1.6-liter engine and 32-kilowatt electric motor for a combined 139 horsepower. It has a lithium-ion battery pack and a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. The all-electric version has an 88-kW motor, a lithium-ion battery pack and a single-speed automatic transmission. It has an EPA-estimated driving range of 124 miles on a full charge.
Competitors include the Chevrolet Bolt EV, Nissan Leaf, Toyota Prius and Volkswagen e-Golf.
The EPA says the new plug-in hybrid version of the Ioniq has an electric-only range of up to 29 miles on a full charge and an overall driving range of 630 miles. It uses a 1.6-liter four-cylinder gas engine and a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission, along with a 44.5-kW electric motor and an 8.9-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack. The regular hybrid has a 1.56-kwh battery. Paddle shifters are standard on the plug-in version and newly available for the regular hybrid.
