More likely about 31 kWh total
But ~28kWh available
from the Ioniq pack seems pretty well confirmed by the multiple range/capacity tests posted ON THE IONIQ THREAD-repost below.
The Ioniq's low drag means excellent results in high speed driving, and low weight means the Ioniq also surpasses all other (?) BEVs in efficiency in stop-and-go city
driving, as shown in the video below:Hyundai Ioniq BEV, hybrid, and PHEV.
Meanwhile, back at the 2016 28kWh (available, we think) pack...
Looks like the max speed was ~35 mph, ambient temperature averaged about 77 F, and the whole drive took almost eight hours.
Increased efficiency means about 50% more range, with only ~33% greater available kWh than we had in our 2011 LEAFs.

“The Ministry of Environment officially approved that IONIQ electric’s mileage on a single charge is 191.2Km.
However, real mileage was confirmed to be 351.1Km, when it was tested.
IONIQ electric was driven at an average speed of 50Km/h (~31 mph) in a downtown like environment, using engine brake with 3-stage regenerative braking device.
Then, it recorded real mileage of 351.1Km, (~218 miles) which is higher than official mileage.
We drove around Hangang River four times, starting from Hyundai Autoway Tower Electric-car Charge Station.
As if it were in the middle of commuting, mileage was measured, while driving through downtown and congested areas, including Olympic highway and Gangbyeon highway.”
Back on-topic, any BEV that tries to "match"
the bolt on battery capacity, will be severely compromised in terms of efficiency and total cost of ownership, just as the Bolt is.
If Nissan cannot come close to matching
the Ioniq in TCO and efficiency, then it will be nearly as unlikely it will sell me one as that GM can sell me a Bolt.
