    2018 Hyundai Ioniq in Limited trim


    2018 Hyundai Ioniq Blue trim - $23,210 to start including mats and the $885 D&H charge. SEL and Limited trims come in at $24,960 and $28,510 respectively with mats and the D&H charge. All of the trims are equipped with the brands most efficient 1.6L “Kappa” model engine and a 1.56 kWh Li-Po traction battery feeding a 43 hp electric motor set in between the I4 engine and the 6-speed DCT providing a combined 139 hp. The Hybrid drivetrain provides std. propulsion via P&G’ing the Li-Po, assists to provide more power when demanded, regenerates power to the battery during braking, and provides short range all-electric functionality -- > 80 mph despite 75 mph being the spec.

    Passenger and cargo volume are 96.2/26.5 cu. ft. respectively for all trims as well. While they arrive with air inflator kits, a mini-spare can be purchased and drops into the spare tire well without incidence.

    Pricing for the 2018 Hyundai Ioniq PHEV-29 has not been released but I am expecting it as soon as possibly tomorrow?

    The Blue and SEL trims arrive with 15” alloys and Michelin Energy Saver A/S 195/65R15 tires. The Limited trim includes 17” alloys and Michelin Primacy MXM4 225/45R17.

Two Ioniqs were given to the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia and North Carolina, two to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in California, and two to the National Capital Parks (East) in Washington, D.C.
