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

 

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. 


125k to 130k? zhun boh?

 

hyundai sg website put it as 140K plus...

prius is already 137k... hyundai will not price it below that and somemore its a new model...

 

Where did you see the price at hyundai singapore website?

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]

Besides the impractical pricing, note the rear headroom is even lower than Elantra. Side note - iirc, Ioniq using lithium batt as opposed to Prius Nimh.

Yup, it uses Li-Po batteries which is a significant weight saver, and space saver and it doesn't have memory effects. But it can catch fire ala Samsung Note 7.

 

I have taken a good look at the car on display when I went back for a service. The boot is very shallow, not very practical. The rear headroom is really low, too low for me (1.75 m). And the inside isn't my taste with the same design direction as the Tucson, i40, etc... prefer the Sonata and Elantra design.

 

I don't understand why if it's going to be a taxi, then it is an issue... lots of Prius taxis also... but Hyundai has a relationship with Comfort Taxis, so I guess we should have seen that coming from faraway... it makes sense for Comfort as they will only have one brand of cars in their stable. While it makes sense for Hyundai cos they will move thousands of units of what essentially is rather over-priced in Singapore... it in within $5000 of the Prius, and that's going to make people buying hybrids move to the Prius instead... it will take quite a while before the public associate hybrid with Hyundai...

 

But having said that, this is a groundbreaking model since the variants are PHEV, full EV and hybrid petrol-electric... all other car companies have different models and drive trains for each of the different models above... Hyundai is the first and the most ambitious to do a 3-in-1 design...

 

This is a 1.6 L class car... and it's almost $40,000 more than a base model Elantra... how to sell...

 

The Kia Niro also shares this platform...

The new Prius is so ugly I wonder how it got past the design stage... this Ioniq is really good looking at the rear but the front needs some work.

Was at showroom, now pre order $113,988.
Got driver memory seat, rear aircon, and front ventilated seat

I would say, low price, and feature rich.

Furthermore, they offer 10 year unlimited hybrid batt replacement, which they claim prius only entitled to 1 claim, which needs to be verified. Spacewise, on papet ioniq is bigger, but when i sat in both, prius feels bigger

Now that is a more reasonable price... do you know whether it comes with Apple CarPlay?

Nv ask.
But its has wireless charging for andriod phones.

Not sure how reliable it is. It claim much more superior performance than prius. Ioniq only 1st gen while prius alr 4th.
Running on DCT while prius CVT

And, also, sunroof :)
