The IONIQ Electric debuted in NZ in late 2016. This first edition (model year 2017) had an 88 kW motor, a 28 kWh battery and around 230 km of range. The Series II edition appeared in 2019 with more range and power. The IONIQ has been a popular choice for fleet vehicles.
In addition to the base model is the Elite trim.

The Series II IONIQ Electric has been a preferred choice of fleet vehicles. Despite its relatively modest battery and engine performance, its efficiency allows a more extended range than similar vehicles.
However, for an extra $10k, the Tesla Model 3 is superior in almost every sense and explains why it outsells the IONIQ by ten to one.
