I have owned this car since September 2018, and it has been nothing short of an amazing vehicle for 95% of my driving needs. This car is powered solely by a 28kW/hr battery and 118hp electric motor with 218 ft.lbs. of torque at 0 rpm. Because of the relatively high torque for such a small vehicle, the Ioniq Electric is a very zippy car around town, with impressive 0-40 mph performance in and around traffic. On the freeway it can still overtake just fine, but most of that torque is reserved for the lower end of the speedometer.
I am the second owner of this car, and the vehicle is smoke-free and always garage-kept away from the elements. Externally, the car is in like-new condition. On the interior, the leather is in great shape for the heated front seats (driver's side has power adjustable seat with memory functions+adjustable lumbar support) and excellent shape for the rear seats. And, save for a scratch beneath the glovebox plastic, the interior trim looks great too. Please see photos to judge for yourself.
Let's talk range and efficiency. The Hyundai Ioniq Electric, to this day, is still the most efficient EV you can buy in the United States in terms of miles travelled per kWh/hr used, beating out even the Tesla Model 3 RWD LR (which, you can no longer purchase new) in city driving. On the highway, the Hyundai is still efficient, but in this case only the Tesla is slightly more efficient, see this video by Bjorn Nyland for more information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=150Z4l69CBo. And another efficiency test at around 30 degrees Fahrenheit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFj7MPfDnRc&t=8s
With that in mind, the Ioniq Electric can safely travel 150+ miles in the summertime around the city, and likely 130 miles on the highway (65 mph). I have made two successful 800-mile round trips with this vehicle, and the range estimator is generally very accurate as long as you are not screaming down the highway at 75+ mph with the heater/AC on. That said, in the wintertime, expect effective range to drop at various temperature points. This is not unique to this vehicle, as ALL battery-electric vehicles suffer a temporary range penalty in the cold. Assuming you keep the cabin heat on 68 degrees, you'll be looking at about 140 miles city/125 miles highway when it is 32 degrees F outside. At 20 degrees, likely 130 miles city/110 miles highway. At 10 degrees, 120 miles city/100 miles highway. Etc. etc.
For reference, during the polar vortex that plunged Chicago to -25 degrees Fahrenheit a month ago, I still was getting about 80 miles of effective range, even with the heater turned up to 80 degrees for comfort.
For charging, this vehicle includes the standard OEM Hyundai Level 1 home charger. This plugs into your regular 110v outlet at home, and can charge the battery from 0% to full in about 30 hours. This is a long time, but at a charging rate of about 4-5 miles per hour, an overnight 12-hour charge can net you as much as 60 miles of range. If your commute round-trip falls within that range, you are golden. If not, you can always take advantage of public Level 2 charging when available, or install one at your home from a certified electrician. Level 2 charging is on a 240v outlet, and can charge the vehicle from 0% to full in about 4 hours. If you need to travel further than 100 miles or so, take advantage of DC Fast Charging (Level 3). You can charge from 0% to 80% in about 23 minutes.
So, if this car is so effective as a commuter and secondary car, you might be thinking why I'm selling? Well, I got this vehicle attempting to use it as a primary vehicle instead of its intended purpose as a commuter, grocery-getter car. While I have managed decently well in the past 6 months, I have found myself wanting just a bit more range to be able to drive longer distances on trips. If this isn't a concern for your driving habits, then this vehicle may just be for you.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. Local pick-up is preferred, but if you are within 100 miles of North Chicago, we may be able to work out some sort of delivery. I am open to delivering the vehicle further either by driving (if there are adequate fast-chargers en route) or with a shipping company of your choice. Either way, contact me before purchasing to work out these logistical details.
I am selling this vehicle at no profit to me, well below the recommended KBB.com value for private party. That said, I am open to some negotiation if this doesn't sell fast, contact me and we'll talk.
