5 reasons to buy the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric

1. Electrifying performance

If you want an electric vehicle to run errands around town or meet up with friends, the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric is an EV to consider. This model is available in two trims (Base and Limited), and both models come standard with an 88-kW electric motor and a 28-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that generates 118 hp and 218 lb-ft of torque. With this electric powertrain, the 2019 Ioniq Electric can travel an EPA-estimated range of 124 miles on a full charge, ideal for short trips and daily commuting.

For quick and convenient charging, the 2019 EV includes DC fast charging capability, which charges the battery to 80% capacity in an estimated 23 minutes, allowing you to resume your travels.

2. Driving comfort

The 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric provides an enjoyable in-cabin experience with a comfortable driving position offering an excellent range of height and seat adjustments. The EV also features a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel with tilt-and-telescoping adjustments, providing even more customization. With 39.1 inches of front-seat headroom (38.2 inches with the sunroof), you won't have to slouch in this ride. Base and Limited trims also have heated front seats, automatic temperature control, and door handle approach lights for added luxury.

3. Storage versatility

With its hatchback body style and sloping roofline, the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric has a spacious 23.8-cu-ft cargo area to carry shopping bags, sporting equipment, and luggage. Both trims have a split 60/40 rear seat that folds flat to accommodate more cargo. Throughout the cabin, you'll find plenty of space to store smaller items between the many door pockets, deep center bin, and center console niches, so your belongings are always within reach.

4. Intuitive infotainment

A hallmark of the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric is its easy-to-use infotainment system, which features a seven-inch high-resolution touchscreen audio display in the Base or an eight-inch touchscreen with a navigation system and upgraded Infinity® premium audio system in the Limited. Both trims include standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto smartphone capabilities and voice controls for added convenience. You'll also find Bluetooth® connectivity in the Base and Limited trims, as well as USB and auxiliary ports and two 12-volt accessory outlets for charging on the go. An optional wireless charging shelf is available, rounding out this EV's in-cabin tech features.

5. Driver aids

If you're seeking advanced driver aids, look no further than the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric Limited. This top-tier trim has invaluable standard features to streamline your daily commute and enhance your peace of mind. Among these features are adaptive headlights, which adjust the beams to provide optimal visibility while navigating corners. Additionally, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection prevents potential collisions with vehicles and people on foot. Lane-keeping assistance helps you maintain your position within the lane, while the driver attention system keeps you alert and focused. Furthermore, the blind spot detection system, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change assist enhance your awareness of surrounding vehicles, particularly during lane changes and reversing maneuvers. Lastly, high beam assist automatically adjusts the headlights, optimizing visibility without impairing other drivers' vision.
