The latest Hyundai IONIQ Electric has a larger battery pack without sacrificing boot space and the ecologically sensitive materials in the cabin add to its green credentials. The pure electric variant of the Ioniq has a potential range of 174 miles. Hyundai’s other pure EV offering, the Kona SUV, comes in a 39kWh version, which manages up to 194 miles on the WLTP cycle, and a 64kWh version which extends the range to 300 miles.
Commanded on the night were: 
  • Smart – ForTwo Electric 
  • Jaguar – I-Pace 
  • BMW – i3
  • Renault – Zoe & Kangoo ZE
  • LDV – E80
  • Nissan – New LEaf & e-NV200

KONA Electric is the newest fully electric model from Hyundai, joining both the IONIQ family and the forthcoming NEXO Fuel Cell Vehicle, due in 2019. It brings together the very latest in battery electric powertrain and connected technology, with an impressive all-electric driving range of 300 miles and a striking design.

The IONIQ Electric, meanwhile, is just one member of the IONIQ family – the world’s first car to be offered with three different electrified powertrains. The IONIQ Electric offers buyers up to 174 miles of zero emissions range, and is priced from £26,745 (including PICG).


Hyundai Motor has made a conscious effort to become a leader in electrified technology, so it gives me great pleasure to see the brand recognised by the GreenFleet Awards. Our electric offerings, including Kona and IONIQ, represent extremely good value for money, are packed full of the latest technology and come as standard with the peace-of-mind that’s afforded by Hyundai’s five-year unlimited mileage and 8 Year or 125,000 mile high voltage battery warranty. These models are just the start of Hyundai’s electric story, and I look forward to sharing with you all the exciting innovations we have coming over the next five years and beyond.

Tony Whitehorn – Hyundai Motor UK President and CEO

Hyundai continues to invest in low and zero emissions powertrains, and is the only manufacturer to offer hybrid, plug-in hybrid, fully electric and Fuel Cell options. The NEXO Fuel Cell Vehicle is due to go on sale early in 2019, capable of travelling 414 zero emissions miles on each fill. NEXO even cleans the air as it drives, cleaning nearly a tonne of fine particulates from London’s air during October’s ‘Clean Driving Month’.

Hyundai’s commitment to reducing emissions across its line-up will see a total of 18 new electrified models introduced to the range by 2025, with three new fully electric vehicles by 2022.
