Want an electric car but can’t afford a Tesla or European luxury car?

Well Hyundai has the answer - meet Australia’s cheapest EV, the Hyundai Ioniq.

The Ioniq is actually three cars in one. Hyundai is offering a fully electric, plug-in hybrid and regular hybrid.

It means you can choose the eco-friendly option that best suits you budget and needs.

The South Korean brand has been aggressive in its pricing strategy, undercutting the Renault Zoe with a starting price of $44,490 for the entry-grade Ioniq Electric Elite and $48,990 for the top-spec Premium.

This is the heart Ioniq EV - an electric motor with 88kW and 295Nm.

Hyundai claims a real world range of 230km.

If the price of the electric Ioniq or you can’t make the leap to a full EV, then the Plug-in and hybrid models are a cheaper option. The Plug-in range starts at $40,990 while the conventional hybrid kicks off the range at $33,990.

While the Ioniq may not have the longest range or flashiest badge it does make electric motoring more accessible
