5 reasons to buy the 2021 Hyundai Ioniq Electric

1. Practical and versatile electric engine

If you're shopping for an EV, chances are the most important thing to you is what's under the hood. And in that respect, the 2021 Hyundai Ioniq Electric more than delivers. A 100-kilowatt electric motor combined with a 38.3 kWh battery pack gives a power output of 134 hp and 218 lb-ft of torque. Most impressively, this powerplant is capable of an EPA-estimated 133 MPGe combined, and a whopping 145 MPGe in the city, all with a total EPA-estimated range of 170 miles on a full charge.

This is the final year for the Hyundai Ioniq Electric, but the 2021 model is a great choice if you enjoy zipping around town and taking trips with friends.

2. Plenty of cargo space

Some EVs have to sacrifice space in the trunk to fit the batteries for the electric motor. That certainly isn't the case for the ultra-practical 2021 Hyundai Ioniq Electric, which offers a capacious 23 cu-ft of luggage volume in the trunk—more than you might expect for a compact car. Additionally, the rear seats fold down to offer even more storage space if you need it.

3. Packed feature list

No matter which 2021 Hyundai Ioniq Electric trim you choose, you won't be lacking in features. The SE trim includes such amenities as automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated mirrors and front seats, and alloy wheels. The Limited trim adds a vast selection of extras, including LED headlights, a sunroof, leather upholstery, a wireless charging pad, and a navigation system.

4. Cutting-edge driver aids

If the prospect of daily commuting in the hustle and bustle of the big city seems intimidating, the 2021 Hyundai Ioniq Electric has you covered. As part of its lengthy feature list, you'll find a great selection of driver aids as standard. Base SE models include adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, driver attention warning, and forward collision mitigation, while Limited trims add blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

5. Comfortable interior

The 2021 Hyundai Ioniq Electric offers space for up to five passengers, as well as a wealth of in-car entertainment features to keep everyone occupied on long trips. Satellite radio and an eight-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto integration are standard on all 2021 Ioniq Electric models, while the Limited trim includes ambient interior lighting, an uprated 10.25-inch touchscreen display, and an eight-speaker Harman Kardon® sound system.
