Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

EPA-est. range EPA-est. range

EPA-estimated range is the distance, or predicted distance, a new plug-in vehicle will travel on electric power before its battery charge is exhausted. Actual range will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

Level 2 charging Level 2 charging

Charge time estimates are based on using a 240-volt charging circuit charging from empty to 100% battery capacity. Level 2 is the fastest way to charge at home, though charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as the capabilities of the charging circuit, charging equipment and the vehicle’s onboard charger. Level 2 charging time provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

DC fast charging DC fast charging

DC fast charging is the fastest way to charge and only available at pay-for-use public charging stations, though some EVs come with complimentary charging for a limited time. Real-world DC fast charging times can vary greatly, even on the same vehicle, because of this type of charging’s sensitivities to ambient and battery conditions. DC fast charging time provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

Battery capacity Battery capacity

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

GREAT vehicle!!

The Ioniq 2019 EV is the best car I have ever had. in summer months, I get about 135-140 miles to a charge and I can zip around town to work, the store, the salon etc. with no problems at all. this car is comfortable with the leather seats, and quiet on the inside too. the speakers are quality and sound good. I've been driving her for 3 and a 1/2 years with zero problems. I just have to get the tires rotated! The best part is, I don't ever pay for gas. I haven't paid attention to gas prices in years, and it feels great! Too bad they don't make these anymore... Thanks Hyundai!

Great EV

This car is perfect for my needs. We have a larger SUV for family trips, but this compact EV is perfect for zipping around town. It charges overnight from 120V outlet in my garage, so I didn't see the need to install a 240V outlet. I did have to make sure I used a 20A circuit. The Ioniq is very comfortable, and it's easy and fun to drive. 80% of my driving is on city streets, but when I do use the freeway, the Ioniq hums along at 80-85mph comfortably, to keep up with the flow of traffic. It's also surprisingly spacious. With the rear seats folded down I can fit a 6ft stepladder and lots of tools in the back.

Would not recommend.

I previously had a Mitsubishi EV, and although it was a great little car, the range just wasn't sufficient at times. The Ioniqs range is twice the Mitsubishi's, and although the Mitsubishi didn't have the battery capacity for much driving, it was always ready to go and never gave me a single problem. In only 4 months of owning the Hyundai, I've experienced 2 issues. I charge it a few times a week, usually every other day, and most of the time it charges just fine. However, several times, I've started the car to find it had not charged the night before. I always confirm on the dash that it's charging, and it seems there is some sort of fault that shuts it off shortly after it's plugged in. There are no error messages on the dash nor on the Bluelink app, and I've taken it in twice, but they haven't found an issue. Thankfully, it's never stranded me, but I will likely one day not be able to make a non-local trip simply because my barely 2 year old car with 11k miles isn't trustworthy. One day, I went to leave for 2 appointments, and the car would not unlock with either remote. After unlocking it with the key, I found the car was completely dead and the interior lights wouldn't even turn on. Despite the main drive battery being 80% charged and the car having been driven the previous afternoon, somehow the 12V battery had completely drained. I was able to start the car after jump starting it, but later that day it was again dead, so I got a jump start pack, which I had to use the next day as well. It appears this is an issue with all Ioniqs, and my spouse has experienced the same issue with his hybrid Ioniq. We both love our cars, obviously with the exception of not being able to always count on them! They're both extremely efficient, especially my EV. It is efficient in city and highway driving, and doesn't seem to make much difference in range no matter how you drive it. One of my favorite things about the car is how smoothly it coasts, which of course improves efficiency. The tires help with that, however if you live in a climate with lots of snow you may want to get a winter set of tires, because they do not offer much traction. The paddle shifters for the regenerative braking are brilliant and I wish all electrified cars had them. It is quite peppy, perhaps a bit too much for initial take off, as it's easy to make the tires spin. Winter range is very impressive for an EV, largely due to the heat pump. I really hope the issues do not persist, because I really like the car, but if need be I will be shopping for a Leaf.
