With a charging time similar to a smartphone, while reaching 62 mph in just 9.9 seconds to from a standing start, the Ioniq Electric combines leading technology with impressive performance.
Providing a snapshot of the future of cars, the Ioniq Electric can be controlled through Bluelink, Hyundai’s intelligent smartphone app. This way you can schedule charging, pre-heat the car, pre-determine destinations, find your car in a packed parking lot, and much more.
The Ioniq Electric boasts an outstanding 193-mile range, meaning that you’ll only need to charge it once a day if you use it for on-demand driving. That’s money in your pocket, as the Hyundai Ioniq Electric allows you to drive Uber full-time.
Much like its PHEV cousin, the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-in, the Ioniq Electric features an impressive drag coefficient of just 0.25, making it one of the most aerodynamic cars on the market. Less drag means increased efficiency, or in other words, more miles per charge.
Not only is it cheaper to charge and service an electric car, but on-demand drivers in London can save up to £15 per day on the Congestion Charge. That’s compared to a traditional hybrid or a modern combustion engine, but the ULEZ charge exemption saves you a further £12.50, a daily fee charged in Central London for older, more polluting cars.
Another way the Ioniq Electric saves you money is by accessing Uber’s Clean Air Fund, which subsidises the cost of owning the Ioniq Electric on Splend’s Rent to buy plan. In a nutshell, driving an electric car for Uber means 3p/mile more earnings after each ride.
