Really? For the pure electric version?
Yeah, the Ioniq BEV. It's for sale in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, and possibly even more CARB states.
On cars.com, if you search a 500 mile radius from NYC, there are 54 for sale:

I test drove one of these in the Boston area back in September - at Mirak Hyundai in Arlington, MA. They still have quite a few on the lot. You're right that the sales are puny, but I'm not sure why. Maybe it's lack of dealer enthusiasm/effort. Maybe it's too little/too late for EV customers - maybe people would have bought the Ioniq two years ago but now they're holding out for a 200+ mile EV. I'm not really sure. But at some of the Maryland dealerships, some of the base model Ioniqs are listed at 25-26K....
Part of the issue with the Ionic (aside from the abysmal rear visibility for all versions - I sat in the HEV and it was like looking down a tunnel with a small opening) is that I've never seen a single ad for it. None, zip, nada, here in the Bay Area. Toyota advertised the Mirai
far more heavily. Kia did advertise the Soul EV briefly when it was introduced, and I expect the new version and the Niro to get some ads, but Ionic advertising might as well be a black hole. It's too late now for the current Ionic BEV, as its range is no longer up to snuff, with 200+ is the base going forward, until 250+ and then 300+ become the norm.
I'm kind of confused why people are comparing the Kona to the LEAF, as the latter's a much bigger car. LEAF/Niro seems a much better comparison (given the latter's TMS, greater range and CCS vice CHAdeMO, there's no question which one I'd opt for).
