    Mmhmm. I'm surprised there isn't more chatter on this.

    In the US, the Model 3 (as I write this), is US$42,990 for the standard range RWD, yes? so it's cheaper but not my much. But the Model 3 will qualify for the tax credit making it cheaper than the Ioniq6 in the U.S.

    In Canada, the TM3 RWD is $54,990. The Ioniq5 starts at $46,000 for the SR RWD version. I suspect the Ioniq5 will be around that price so there'll be a greater difference in Canada. More so as you move up the trim as all trims are likely to qualify for the federal rebate ($5,000) while only the base Model 3 is eligible. (same for provincial rebates).

    Edit: Looks like Hyundai Canada isn’t selling the “Essential” trim level in Canada so the cheapest one (still 58kWh) is the Preferred at $49k ($51,643 on the website as it includes all fees but before taxes). Not sure how many Essential trim levels they sold since it didn’t include a heat pump, battery heater or “800V ultra fast charging” (not sure what the last one means since I don’t recall any other base model Ioniq5 anywhere else in the world not getting the 800V architecture).

    It's a lovely car, but it is too much for the commuter role I plan for an EV. I'll take a look at what used is going for in a few years, but I suspect it will still be higher than I wish to pay. Maybe it(or a 2 or 4) will be my second BEV. Or maybe a Punk Cat.

    Maybe Hyundai updated their site since the article was written, or maybe because the site was sneaky and hid the trim, but there is an Ioniq 5 SE standard range that is less than the 6; 220 mile range with 58kWh battery. @Tideland Prius it looks like C&D updated the Ioniq 6 pricing since you made the table.

    The Ioniq 6 price is good, but it is about average.

    Those prices aren't completely up to date.

    Here in Ireland the "base" 58kw Ioniq 5 is €40,995 versus the RWD Model 3 at €44,990. The Ioniq 5 seems to be a strong seller across Europe (but not so much in the US, unsurprisingly).

    BYD's coming soon. It'll be interesting to see how the market shakes out when they arrive.

    C&D’s prices include the $1,115 destination fee.

    Yes there’s an Ioniq5 SE 58kWh trim. Kyle from Out of Spec did a comparison between the 3 trims. He found two other owners.

    I'm starting to see Ioniq 5's. Being third child of the EV markets means we are last to get supply from foreign makers.

    We had a BYD E6 listed on the EPA site for a few years. It was a bit of an electron guzzler. Not even sure it made it to sale. Between the market and politics, the US likely won't see an EV from China soon.

    I think the BYD Atto 3 is the first model that's going to be sold. Apparently it's gonna cost €38,000, but like Vinfast in the US market, I'm not sure who's going to pay name-brand amounts of money for a car from an unknown (in the West, at least) brand.

    EVs are still kind of new. Those buying are likely doing a little more research, and have come across the BYD name before. I've heard of them years before Vinfast. They've been selling EV buses here for years. Some traditional car brands have at least spoken to them for batteries. Most recent headlines have been about them outselling Tesla, if you also count their PHEVs. Buffet is also a big investor into the company, which has moved BYD news into the financial section.

    I understand that there are other Chinese EVs for sale in the EU and UK. So BYD isn't the very first in that regard. Not saying they will be a huge success, but the company isn't a complete unknown.

    “Mmhmm. I'm surprised there isn't more chatter on this.“

    OK, I’ll do a trip report to my local Hyundai dealer. Then I hang out at a CCS-1 charging station and ask, “How do you like your electric car charger?”

    Well maybe not as I have an FSD driver assistant to design and build.

    In my case, I'd be more likely too respond to the initial post if they introduced some new tech or feature that was not already available in other cars.

    I'm not in the market for a EV right now, and probably won't be as long as my current cars work well.

    The price alone does not interest me, as it is free to change from day to day. The range does not excite me, because I've learned that I my daily driving needs only a 30 mile range with occasional access to a L2 charger. The package levels don't excite me, again because they're subject to change before I am ready to buy.

    I don't think I'd realized any ever had.

    I don't know much about our next car, but I do know the window sticker is going to be somewhere south of $30k (in early 2023 dollars)

    We have found our new equilibrium of car usage. We could make very good use of a family sedan with 100 miles of range, if anyone happened to build one.

    A car with a big battery isn't a bad thing in general, but I don't like the idea of buying the range I need for 8 trips a year. Huge savings to be had in only buying what I need for 200 trips a year and renting for those other 8.

    lol because it wasn't a serious effort. I guess they needed a compliance car to thread some legal needle.

    A two door (or was it actually two seat?) SUV with 100 mile range. I'm fairly certain the point was to please nobody.

    It has suicide doors, Like the i3. I think Mazda always intended to other a range extender, but is just taking long to get the rotary working.

    As Trollbait said, it has suicide doors. It is a 4 seater. I've sat in it in one of those pop-up boutiques. It's actually decently sized.

    The other is the MINI (and there'll be a new one out soon).
