  1. I think the car was really well done ..
    I’ve put together that just and am scared …

    In the middle equipment variant with AHK I was somehow at almost 60.000 ..

    Then the M3 probably has the nose again ..

    It remains exciting

  2. The IoniQ looks really good in reality (even better) and falls powerful, therefore comes like a powerful golf 1 in the Giugiaro design style.
    Great that Hyundai has set a treat in the BEV world, which stands out from the SUVs of SUVs, polarized and not like an electrified combustion or burning brother (Z,.B. looks like skoda).
    Protection driving, he also has a lot of fun, goes like a go-kart, much better than every sporty combustion, and unbeaten with one-pedal.
    The price is – well – quite self-confident, but the German (burning) competition is not cheaper, especially in the upscale equipment, and technically completely inferior.

  3. What I noticed at the test drive is very positive: the seat ventilation and charging speed.
    Also a frunk for the charging cable is available and the 1600 kg trailer load is excellent.
    The only negative point was the route planning to Jever – even Hyundai may even be able to cool a few improvement ideas at Tesla – as a complete package it is a top BEV standing ovations for Hyundai &# 128578;

  4. Certainly a super bev. Technically superior to German competition thanks to 800V. That’s really great. I am still thinking that Hyundai could have jumped a slightly bigger battery, just because the box is not so quite trimming on aerodynamics. But maybe there will be something in the next few years.

    The design is certainly polarizing. I am still not sure if I like the car or not.

    The technology definitely goes in the right direction. If nothing happens, the diesel station wagon will hold us a few years and then I’m curious what’s on the market in the middle of the decade.

  5. Super car. The route planning is not mentioned. This is actually the biggest shortcoming. The next is the efficiency. Although the model 3 loads slower, you are faster on long-distance. But the trunk is too small in the model 3. I can soon choose one of them as a company car. The choice is extremely difficult. Trunk AHK and design speak for Hyndai. Efficiency and route planning for Tesla. What do you all mean?

  6. The Audi Q4 E-Tron is a premium vehicle and who may choose it will not consider Hyundai or Tesla or Dacia. The BMW is unfortunately mispronched, you have to admit that. Shows the extremely fast facelift ..

  7. After moving to various SUVs of so-called premium manufacturers in recent years, which were all around 20t € more expensive than the project 45 of Hyundai, I can certainly say that this more expectored money was thrown out to the window. I drive the P45 (cat bought in the sack) now about seven weeks and can actually say that all my expectations were far exceeded this new car. For me there is pure not to criticize – even the reputed bad efficiency and the improving route planning rings me only a tired smile. It’s and remains a great and reliable vehicle that meets a smile every day and produces the pure “joy in driving” in every situation.

  8. Together together a test drive. Was great. Place for people without end. Well-enjoy. Sufficient trunk, even if you want from the Alps to the North Cape. And front a frunk for the ladbooster. Fits.
