Video | Hyundai Ioniq Electric Interior Tour: How Does It Compare to the Ioniq Hybrid?

There are three Hyundai Ioniq models: hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric. While the first two are pretty much identical in terms of their exterior styling and interior design, the Ioniq Electric is a little bit different. Outside, the hybrid’s grille has been blocked off and replaced by a more aerodynamic gloss black trim piece; there’s no engine and therefore nothing for a grille to provide cooling to. Inside, the main differences are around the center console, including a special electronic shifter we think works better than most.

Of course, you’re probably wondering how these eco-friendly cars compare in their eco-friendliness. The Ioniq Hybrid returns an excellent 55 miles per gallon in the city and 54 mpg on the highway in most trim levels, but can manage 57 city/59 highway in the thriftiest Ioniq Blue trim. The Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid, meanwhile, adds a bigger battery pack that can be recharged at home or at a public charging station. Doing so allows for an estimated all-electric range of 29 miles, which is long enough to satify the there-and-back commutes of many. The more you’re able to achieve that, the more astronomical your fuel economy will be. As for the Ioniq Electric, it’s capable of 124 miles of electric range, which is starting to be a bit low among electric cars, but its low price, surprisingly fun driving experience and some of the interior virtues mentioned in the video do make a difference.
