Notably, the company has revealed that the Ioniq Electric (and the other variants of the model as well) will be sold with a lifetime battery-failure warranty included in price. What that means is that the battery pack is warrantied against complete failure for as long as the car remains in service, not that there’s a lifetime warranty for capacity degradation.
The lifetime warranty also doesn’t apply at all to commercially used vehicles — so taxi and delivery drivers, and fleet managers as well, are out of luck. Still, this is an interesting and unique feature.
Back to pricing — the prices listed above include the $835 destination charge, but of course they don’t include the various incentives on offer federally and on the state level. The best place to buy an electric car in the US, as ever, is Colorado, where a $5,000 rebate is on offer. With this factored in, and also the $7,500 federal tax credit (presuming that you make enough to qualify for the full benefit of the credit), that means that you can get a 2018 Hyundai Ioniq Electric for $17,835. In Colorado only of course — though, decent incentives are now on offer in many other states as well.
