    Yep. I was going off of the "non-NA" data that I could find. Maybe the 2020 NA version will have faster charging and a lower price.
    I'm not holding my breath.

    Well, the increase in battery capacity isn't free. I think we will be lucky to have the price remain the same in the US.

    So the 2020 Ioniq BEV (vs 2019 Ioniq BEV) got less capable, heavier, less efficient, AND (in all likelihood) more expensive . That's not good.

    HI Carcus:
    If Hyundai upgraded the BEV to the levels hinted, they would have no choice but to add a larger pack with increased mass which in turn would reduce efficiency. The 2019 Hyundai Ioniq EV at $30,315 and Limited EV at $36,815 will probably go up if they have significantly increased the pack size.

    But people want 600 miles of range and a full charge in 8 minutes !
    And THAT's why people buy gasoline cars. They aren't going away anytime soon.
