The 2018 Hyundai Ioniq — available as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid and a pure battery electric — aims to give buyers options based on how they see their transportation needs. The Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid gives drivers maximum flexibility. When its battery is depleted after driving an all-electric range of up to 29 miles, the 1.6-liter gasoline engine kicks on to continue your journey with an EPA combined fuel economy rating of 52 mpg.

The Ioniq looks relatively normal compared to some other plug-in competitors. Drivers who simply want excellent efficiency and drive it in peace and quiet, without making a statement.

Even on the inside, the Ioniq appears as typical as most other Hyundai models, not overdone with the futuristic flourishes. But its interior panels are made with recycled and sustainable materials, with an eye on closing the loop from production to the inevitable dismantling and recycling of its parts.

Buyers of the standard Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid will benefit from dual-zone climate control, a 7-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as well as keyless entry and push-button starting. The 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks allow drivers to load up the back, and the hatchback opening makes loading easy.

Opt for the Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid Limited trim and you'll get an upgraded digital gauge cluster display, leather seating surfaces, ambient lighting, a power driver seat with memory function, blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, and air vents for rear passengers. Importantly, Limited models can be equipped with the Ultimate package, which includes a larger 8-inch infotainment display, an eight-speaker Infinity surround-sound audio system, Blue Link remote connectivity, a wireless phone charging pad, a sunroof, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, rear parking sensors, and dynamic xenon projector headlights.

Blending fuel efficiency, utility and style, the 2018 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid has all you need to maximize those commuting miles while using your hybrid like a regular car. When it's time to find the Ioniq model that suits you, look to Edmunds for the best buying advice.
