How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range?

Real-world range of the Hyundai Ioniq Electric 2016 is 114–140 miles (ranked №581 out of 667 electric vehicles) — depending on several factors, including:

  • Speed: Higher speeds deplete the battery faster.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold and hot weather impacts range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous terrain reduces range.
  • Driving style: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Use of features: Features like climate control and media system also affect range.

It's important to remember that these are just estimates, and your actual range may vary. It's always best to factor in these various factors when planning your trip and be prepared for potential charging stops.
