In this video, we review the first all-electric car from Hyundai available in Australia. The all-new Hyundai Ioniq Electric.

Being an Electric Vehicle (EV), there is no engine, instead of an electric motor with 88 kW of power and 295 Nm of torque.

This IONIQ has a 28 kWh battery that provides up to 280 km of range on NEDC and ADR tests and 230 km of real-world range.

If you are charging it on a 240V standard, the battery takes 4 hours and 25 minutes to fully charge.

As well as an electric Ioniq, there is also a Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid available.
