Hyundai confirmed that its battery electric vehicle with a 200-mile range is coming. It will be an SUV by continuing where Toyota RAV4 EV finished. The producer annunciated that today at a press conference at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. Even Hyundai’s trio of Ioniq models (hybrid, plug-in, and full EV) and the producer’s scheming subscription property service were the stars at the press conference. A well-executed EV in SUV form is really helping boost buying consideration in the zero emissions (at the tailpipe) part.
Hyundai is offering a fuel cell version of the compact Tucson
Vice president of corporate and product planning Mike O’Brien were interviewed today about the upcoming EV crossover after the conference. They added that there won’t be a car that’s available today. Hyundai is offering a fuel cell version of the compact Tucson. Despite of, this suggests the model is maybe a new nameplate. It has higher seats than the Ioniq models and all other EVs that exist. This could give an SUV version with a 200-mile range an availability in the very low-volume segment. If product plans of Hyundai don’t change, we’ll be happy to see if the EV will have standard or available all-wheel drive.
It could be it’s just a front-drive EV with SUV-like styling. However, we are curious, to see if Hyundai will show a version of the Ioniq Unlimited subscription service. For a fixed monthly payment for 24 or 36 months and no down payment, will involve the cost of the Ioniq EV, registration, scheduled maintenance, charging, and unlimited mileage. The program is beginning in California at the begining of next year. It assaults me as an amusing way to get customers interested in a super-efficient vehicle in a time of low gas prices.
So, until Hyundai starts to provide more info about its electric crossover or crossover-like vehicle, we can ask you: Would an all-inclusive ownership experience like Ioniq Unlimited make you consider an electric car more possibly?
