This fastback is aimed at eco-conscious motorists looking for a more affordable alternative to the BMW i3. The Ioniq Electric has a 28kWh battery and an electric motor that produces 118hp and 295Nm. It takes 30 minutes to recharge the battery using a fast charger (4 hours and 25 minutes with a standard wall socket), which will give the car a claimed maximum range of 280km. If you run out of juice, Komoco Motors will send over a “powerbank” in the form of a rescue vehicle equipped with a recharging module.
