Stylish, comfortable and refined, the 2018 Hyundai Ioniq is a true alternative to the Toyota Prius, which invented the hybrid segment. With its reasonable base price and laundry list of standard and available features, the sporty Ioniq feels like a premium-compact car, and it’s a bit cheaper and more fuel-efficient than the popular Toyota. Hyundai also offers a better warranty with lifetime battery coverage.

If ultimate electric range is what you’re after, the Chevy Bolt is still your best choice in this class. It offers 238 miles of range, which is over 100 miles more than the 2018 Hyundai Ioniq. It also packs 200 horsepower and is more fun to drive than the 118-horsepower Ioniq Electric.
What's New for 2018
For 2018 Hyundai has added the new Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid to the lineup. This model works much like a Toyota Prius Prime or Chevy Volt. It can be driven up to 27 miles on pure electric power before a 1.6-liter gasoline engine turns on to drive the vehicle and charge the batteries. Total range is about 590 miles. Plug into a 240v source and battery charging time is just 2.5 hours.
