The Hyundai Ioniq is the least expensive plug-in hybrid you can buy. The starting price is $26,300 before a $4,543 federal tax credit and local incentives. That’s an excellent price for a fun-to-drive hatchback that can travel its first 29 miles without using any gasoline. Commuters looking for an affordable, comfortable, and emissions-free daily ride should take a serious look at the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid.

Hyundai’s aerodynamic and attractive compact hatch is offered as a pure electric car with a driving range of about 170 miles. The starting price for the Ioniq EV is just over $31,200 before incentives. That makes it one of the most affordable electric vehicles. However, its 170-mile range is well below battery-powered models that cost a few thousand dollars more. Those competitors include the Hyundai Kona Electric SUV, which sells for about $38,000 while providing 259 miles of range.

The Sonata Plug-in Hybrid is a compelling package, although it doesn’t offer nearly the EV range of the 48-mile Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, its closest competitor.
