If top speed matters to you, looks like the ioniq will beat any other BEV available for under ~$75k.
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2016/02 ... ioniq.htmlHyundai will unveil all the members—hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and battery-electric—of its IONIQ range at the Geneva Motor Show next week....
The IONIQ Electric features a 28 kWh lithium-ion-polymer battery for an estimated range of more than 250 km (155 miles). The 295 N·m (218 lb-ft) of torque is delivered by the electric motor with maximum output of 88 kW (118 hp) through a single-speed reducer transmission accelerating the car up to 165 km/h (103 mph)...
Video preview on all three versions below.
I prefer the no-grill look of the BEV version myself. It even has a decent front license plate location, which the LEAF does not.
Looks to me like the BEV charge port door is not located in one wrong location, the left front fender where it is on the PHEV.
I hope both charge ports (or one, if CCS) are under that big emblem on the nose, the single correct location for any BEV, IMO.
