Hyundai quietly upped the price of its IONIQ Electric
Just a week ago, Hyundai began selling its 2019 IONIQ Electric in other CARB states, rather than just California.
According to a recent story by CarsDirect, within three days of the sales expansion, the automaker bumped up the EV’s price by more than $500.
The IONIQ Electric was priced at $30,700 in early January.
Now, Hyundai has increased its MSRP to $31,235. Hyundai’s site confirms the pricing.
It lists the base IONIQ Electric at $30,315, excluding the $920 destination charge. CarsDirect notes that Hyundai increased the EV’s starting price by $500 and added $35 to its destination charge.
This price increase makes the IONIQ Electric more expensive that its top rival, the 2019 Nissan LEAF. The LEAF starts at $29,990, plus an $895 destination charge. This puts it at $30,885, which is $350 less than the Hyundai.
