The fully electric 2019 #IoniqEV may only have 124 miles of range in the 200+ range world, but @hyundaiusa has a crazy lease deal on these in America until the end of this month for $79 a month for 3 years and $999 down. That’s right, $79 is NOT a typo and even though the 2020 #IoniqElectric is rumored to have the same 258 mile range as the KonaEV, that is one tempting deal if you guys are interested in making the switch to full electric.
i am having ZERO luck trying to track down one of these. i spoke on the phone with a dealership near Baltimore yesterday. he told me they have five and i offered to put down a deposit. he said no need, these aren't going anywhere
he even set me up with an appointment for Saturday at 11:45. but i was still trying to get him to email me a formal quote with all the fees and numbers before i started off on a 4 hour drive.
He said he'd have it within the hour at 12:30 yesterday. When I got home, still nothing so i called again at 430 and spoke with someone that was supposedly his manager. He said he would follow up and make sure they got me the quote.
this morning, still nothing! then i get a voicemail from the sales manager shortly after they opened and he wanted to make sure i had everything i needed. i call him back and now all five are gone??? WTF.
another place in NY was showing 11 but apparently those are all gone too.
f*cking car salespeople.
As of this posting, I see 3 base models at Garvey in upstate NY.

the 2020 Ioniq will have a 170 mile EPA range, which indeed explains the blowout lease rates on the outgoing model. I still think 124 miles is in the category of "good enough" for the most part, but yeah, explains the fire sale 2019s.
i still see the Limited model available at a few dealers which honestly I prefer with the extra options it comes with, wonder how much per month those run for. All the base models have sold out it seems even here in the LA area.

Just checked here on the Ioniq Limiteds. $150 a month with $1000 down. Nice little car, actually. Drive this one (it was filthy on the outside). Liked the Apple Carplay and wireless charger, the typical suite of safety aids and adaptive cruise control. Drove really good, especially with the regen cranked up to one pedal driving. Plenty of pep, though not as much as the Kona EV I also drove. Very quiet and luxurious, though i don't know if I like the added pedestrian safety noise they make.
Seems they sell mostly to out of staters.

GF was interested but we missed the october deal and last weekend this deal didn't exist. So the plan was she get the check from insurance on her Sentra, drive my TT until we find a similar deal.
We drove the regular hybrid last week and it was nice for the money, an EV is very nice for the money at 79 a month!
Allegedly a white on black base up in NJ not too far from my parents, just one charge on the ride down away
I forgot in the excitement of seeing the deal that she has an interview in a week that would mean a 124 mile range EV won't work, so no point in rushing only to have to dump it.
We both did like the ioniq hybrid that she drove at carmax last week though, so these are on the list. There are some good deals on the plug-in if you buy not lease so we'll see in a few weeks.
