Just been surfing the Hyundai website, in their Alt Fuels type area, and noticed that the text indicates that the Nexo Fuel cell car is at the spearhead of their approach - away from pure BEV possibly ?
who knows; but that's not the point - it may be that the Nexo has always been their alt-fuel spearhead and I just haven't noticed - but they don't list the Kona EV as a new car now, plus the ioniq is only getting a smallish battery upgrade - I'm just wondering if these are signs of something rather than just "facts"
AfAIK the reason the Ioniq is only getting a small battery upgrade is because there isn't room to fit a larger set in. It's a low slung car with no underfloor space. But that helps the Cd a lot, and makes it more efficient than SUV styles.
After having run a Nissan Leaf 24 kWh for 3 years from 2014, I am now returning to the world of EV's following the end of the lease on my Volvo XC90 diesel. This has proven to be a wonderful car to drive and use daily due to its build and luxury appointments however the choice of EV's and range...
Many of you may be aware I drive a Soul as my cab in Brighton and have done for over 2 years.
A colleague of mine is very interested in leasing the new 38kw Ionic but has been told it is not possible to lease one if he intends to use it as a cab ?
Apparently Hyundai do not allow it ?
Don't know wether anyone else has noticed, but the ioniq now advertised on the website for build and order is the new 2nd gen 38kwh - to me, it seems that the pricing is the same as the old one, but not 100% about that !!
I've come across a fantastically cheap lease deal on the new 38kW Ioniq. I'm sorely tempted but can't justify selling my Volt. Needless to say I'm totally unaffiliated with the lease company I just wanted to share.
Nationwide Vehicle Leasing have the Premium SE spec 38kW for delivery in January...
