2019 Hyundai Ioniq vs. Its Competition

2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric

The Toyota Prius is the iconic hybrid in the U.S.

and has been improved over prior model years.

The Ioniq is more affordable and lacks the Prius' instantly recognizable shape, which may be attractive to inconspicuous buyers.

The Chevrolet Bolt EV and Volt are full-electric and plug-in hybrid models, respectively.

The Bolt EV is one of the most affordable and longest range electric cars on the market, while the Volt could help ease the transition from traditional powertrains to electrified powertrains for first-time buyers.

The Ford C-Max is a tall plug-in hybrid wagon that's been discontinued by Ford.

The Nissan Leaf was new for 2018, but like the Ioniq Electric, it lacks the range to compete against cars with internal combustion engines.
