Hyundai's future plans for a 200 mile and 250 mile range electric vehicle

Wed May 25, 2016 11:20 pm

Autoblog says that Hyundai is prepping a 200 mile range electric vehicle for 2018, and a 250 mile range electric vehicle for 2020. This is in addition to the IONIQ EV that will launch later this year with 110 miles of EPA rated range.

Seems to me like they are a little behind the curve, but I guess it all depends at what price point they can deliver these electric vehicles?

I think this is good news - the 200+ mile electric vehicle competition is heating up.

Agreed, if these are $50K then it isn't competition at all, but very likely will be at a price point that will target the Bolt EV and Model 3 customers.

If these are EPA numbers that is fantastic news..... although I'm a little pessimistic that EPA numbers will be 30% less.

Hyundai quoted the IONIQ EV at 150 miles for a long time, and the EPA rating is 110 miles.

So..... that means a 200 mile battery electric vehicle is actually 142 miles, and a 250 mile electric vehicle is actually only 177 miles on the EPA scale, which is nothing exciting at all.

I'll hold my opinions until official EPA/Hyundai range ratings are in though - I'm always happy to be proven wrong and surprised :)
