    I agree with everything Maxx just said , except : Little ? Maybe in North America. I think it's pretty big.
    And there seems to be no ( or very few ) Ioniq's in the Chicago metro area. The gold standard remains the Prius
    and Prime. The insight is pretty good , but it's a sedan. Of course , there are darned few hybrids of any kind
    on dealer lots around here. Dealers need to make room on their 40 acre facilities for 10 acres of SUV's.

    re: acres of SUVs - It's hard to turn down offers like 20% off MSRP for your GM FSP!!!

    It's only $400/month and that's what my paycheck affords, so let's do this!

    Hi Chris:

    Hyundai has pulled way back on 2020 Elantra incentives and I have not found a hot deal on one in months. In many cases, they are following the Honda model and posting Lease deals that are anything but deals.


    That said, here in CA, the dealer lots have plenty of Ioniqs but they are only discounting by a Grand. In contrast, I picked up the Prius Prime for $3,300 off retail with a $3,500 Toyota rebate and $750 Toyota-Uber rebate on top of that. Plus the Fed TC and State tax rebate. The Ioniq PHEV with just $1k off and the Fed and State deals had it at $6,500 more than an equivalent Prime. :(

    Hyundai and Kia don't have the FSP SUVs and trucks to counter like Toyota does.

    Maybe not trucks , but LOTS of SUV/CUV's.


    If/when I'm ready to pull the trigger on a new car , I will search again
    for an Ioniq HEV or PHEV. Right now , I'm not liking what I see at the dealerships
    on my Sunday morning bike ride.

    Tacoma is a big seller, and it is one of the least efficient midsize pick-ups available. The Tundra and Sequoia are worse than Ford's and GM's offerings.

    The big T's fleet average is probably riding on the 'coat tails' of the successful hybrids. No need to work as hard on the FSPs, right? :(

    Those coat tails won't help the average much when they aren't selling.

    One reason I bought our 2013 & 2016 Elantras, it had the widest backseat for a small car that would readily seat 3 people much better than a Prius. The 2021 Elantra backseat is over an inch wider now. The present Elantra length is 4(?) inches longer than our Elantras. If we ever get another vehicle (our Elantras may outlast us), I'd like to keep it somewhat shorter so we can get the ferry crossing discount for short vehicles.

    I will eat my words. The local Hyundai dealer has 5 Ioniq's. No plug-ins , which
    is what I would prefer.
