2018 Hyundai IONIQ EV review: Our expert's take

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.

Best car-Ioniq

Get mileage and comfort! Love the car. All Star Hyundai was the best. We dealt with Rezaul Bashar and will continue to use him. We bought two cars from him.
