Wasted la, this car model kenna "burned" by taxi company liao, now lesser people will buy...

 

Was thinking the same thing. Now that the taxi coys have gotten their hands on it, it reduces the attractiveness to private buyers.

Tks! If it's priced at $125k, I doubt if many units would be moved bearing in mind Prius is going at $130k+ and also taxi using it, so don't quite understand their rationale but maybe they want to prove its reliability and resilience since it's the first Hyundai Hybrid?

Hybrid cars take off very fast cos using electric motor but my understanding is you shouldn't floor it cos then the normal motor would take over if it goes over a certain speed. It's also very quiet. I'm no expert just hearing from some hybrid owners.

I was kinda interested in the hybrid car as I saw quite a few running in Korea when I was there for holidays recently. But the price of $125K ... its really close to the Honda 1.5T Civic loh...  :wut:

 

The main contributing factor that it can go fast is that it uses a DCT instead of the usual CVT.

For me this is yet another nail in the coffin for diesel cars in Singapore. A huge fleet of Prius and now Hyundai hybrids.

Wow, $125K is high price. Is Kia Niro here yet?

It's called inference and some speculation. It's a sign of things to come.

Pay more up front but save long run in petrol. 1 litre maybe can up to 30km ?

 

Not much real savings as the savings on petrol gets eaten up by the higher cost of hybrids in SG. You need to drive a lot like taxis in order to have good savings.

Yeah its kinda high... No idea about the Niro. If it does come, it will probably be end of 2017 bah considering it is going to be on sale early next year in US.

Well they are silly if they want to compete with Prius price wise cos whilst they may be a new model, the Prius is an established Hybrid which is into its next generation already n thus has the experience n know how of what is expected of a hybrid n all the teething issues have been sorted out largely n like it or not the Toyota brand name is renowned so I won't buy this Hyundai unless they discount it to tempt me to try, my 2 cents....

I think that is just the listed price for the Ioniq. The list also contains veloster, i30 and i40 which they do not currently sell them. 

 

I was offered to place $5K as refundable downpayment for the $125K selling price to have the 1st pick when its officially out for sale. 

 

No one in the right mind to sell or buy that car at $140K.  [smash]
