Yes, the Bjorn videos alerted me to the Ioniq being a real option . My current Leaf 30 drops way down once I start doing 60+ down to 70 or 80 depending on the weather. It's the long distance 100+ runs that I am interested in. Local is all okay even for my 30.In theory the Leaf or Zoe 40 would have more range at low speed, around town. The Ioniq advantage is two fold - aerodynamic efficiency, so has better range (I'm guessing but maybe at speeds of 60mph+); and charging speed, with up to 70kW when it becomes available.
I struggle to get below 4miles/kWh on fast motorway driving (the cars in the "Audi lane" slow me down)
Have you seen Bjorn Nyland's youtube of Ioniq charging in 19 minutes? That and his video of the range in snowy Norway sold it to me.
Just the Answer I was looking for. I currently drive a 2014 Soul EV 27kw, I have covered 50k in 20 mths. But it's been a struggle this time of year with it only showing 72 miles on the GOM. 120+ would be my wildest dreams right now !!!IONIQForum.com- The Largest Hyundai IONIQ Forum And Community!
I have done a few test runs in the IONIQ Electric now and thought it might be easier to just list them in a single post as opposed to being jotted over different threads. In general my daily roundtrip is 100 miles - of this 22 on the motorway and the rest on A and B roads.
In doing this runs I have set the adaptive cruise to a speed and then either gone at that speed or if there is no way to over take just sat with the traffic so I think they can be considered as a normal driving style.
The temperature has never risen above 5C while doing this and has dropped below 0 a couple of times so the heating has always been on at 22C and the heated seats & steering wheel generally turned on.
Cruise set to 70mph - total range 110 miles
Cruise set to 60mph - total range 125 miles
Cruise set to 55mph - total range 130 miles
I´ve had both cars and I would say that the Ioniq could top the milage of Zoe 40 under certain conditions:So do people reckon the Ioniq can give the Zoe a run mileage wise? Looks my choice is between those two.
I know they are different cars, but I have just had my Kia Soul tested by KiaI don't think it is quite as simple as it relies on many things we don't know. For example the Leaf 30kWh only has a useable 28kWh, now when Hyundai say the IONIQ is 28kWh I believe that is the useable battery - I don't actually know how big the battery is (current Zoe is Useable ~22kWh but is actually a 25.9kWh battery). You then have all of the battery management stuff around that constantly trying to manage the health of the battery.
I would have thought that any degradation would probably be on a % basis as opposed to a straight drop in kWh.
I don't want to discourage you, but Bjorn Nyland released a test drive on youtube. He wasn't very impressed with the charging speed of the new Ioniq.Hi, reviving this old thread as I’ve just seen a lease deal for IONIQ but the 38kwh version.
I’m assuming most older responses on this thread are based on smaller battery version.
So, what typical range (or miles/kWh) people are achieving on the 38kwh version?
I know that is the rated speed, but Bjorn wasn't getting anywhere near that. And according to him, it did behave very similarly to "rapidgate", where he had to sit and wait for over an hour on the later charging sessions.There are some docking in November. The charging speed is 50kW, nothing to be worried about really.
