Fleet News Awards 2017: Best Plug-in Car (0g/km) - Hyundai IONIQ

But it’s perhaps the Ioniq Electric pure EV that impresses most, with competitive pricing as well as a potential driving range of 174 miles – among the best of mainstream EVs in 2016.

And with some public charge point suppliers now levying fees for using them, those extra miles could prove valuable.

Prices start from £24,495 (inclusive of the Government Plug-In grant of £4,500) for the Premium specification. This includes specific equipment such as automatic windscreen wipers, 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps and rear combination lamps and ‘advanced smart cruise control’.

Sat-nav is standard across the Ioniq Electric range, while customers can also choose a higher specification Premium SE for an extra £1,800.

Judges’ comments

The Ioniq offers one of the longest ranges of any electric vehicle. With ample space and a high-tech interior wrapped in an attractive body, its low price results in a very competitive running cost and brings electric motoring to the mass market.
