It's worth noting that while the Hybrid will be available across Canada, the Electric will only be available in provinces with government rebates for electric vehicles.
Hyundai has officially announced pricing for two of the three pillars of the Ioniq family. We now know how much the Ioniq hybrid and electric vehicles will cost, but we'll have to wait just a little bit longer to find out how much the plug-in hybrid version - known as the Electric Plus - will be.
The lowest priced Ioniq you can purchase is the Hybrid in SE trim, which starts at $24,299. Three other trims will be available - the SE ($26,499), Limited ($29,749), and Limited Tech ($31,749). The Electric, meanwhile, starts at $35,649 in SE trim. The SE Cold Climate Package (which includes a heat pump, battery temperature management system, and heated rear seats) comes in at $36,849, and the highest priced Ioniq, the Electric Limited, has an MSRP of $41,849.
It's worth noting that while the Hybrid will be available across Canada, the Electric will only be available in provinces with government rebates for electric vehicles - specifically, Quebec, Ontario, and British Columbia.

The Ioniq Electric uses an 88 kW motor and produces 118 horsepower and 218 pound-feet of torque. According to Motor1's recent review of the vehicle, "Drop the hammer when the lights turn green and a wave of power will surge you forward past every caveman revving up loudly but not able to get a jump on you." Estimated driving range totals 200 kilometres, according to Hyundai.
The Ioniq Hybrid employs a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine and 32 kW electric motor, mated to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission, which Hyundai says is the first time a DCT has been used in a hybrid vehicle. The company says driving range for the Ioniq Hybrid totals over 1,000 km.
The Electric Plus model won't be on sale in Canada until late 2017, so expect pricing details for that Ioniq to be released once the temperatures start dropping again later this year.
Honda's Clarity family of vehicles will also offer three models with differing propulsion systems, but only one will be available in Canada at launch. In terms of competition for pure EV models, the new Chevrolet Bolt still dominates when it comes to driving range, being able to travel an estimated 383 km on a single charge.
