Between late 2016 and December 2021, Hyundai sold a total of 135,692 Ioniq units in Europe. Ioniq also enjoys great popularity in the Netherlands. Since the start of sales in 2016, nearly eight thousand units of this model, which is split between the Ioniq Electric, Ioniq Hybrid and Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid, have been sold.
With Ioniq, Hyundai does not only present a technical tour de force. As various recycled materials are also used in production, the roof is made of sugarcane components and various other components in the interior are made of recycled plastic, Hyundai sets internal standards.
In the Netherlands, Ioniq is also known for his role as a mobile signage for the Van Gogh Museum. Hyundai has been a partner of the Van Gogh Museum since 2016. Both parties value sustainability and share a love of art and design. This shared spirit became the basis for the collaboration between the Van Gogh Museum and Hyundai. To underscore the partnership, Hyundai has made several electric Hyundais available at the Van Gogh Museum over the years. It all started with the Ioniq Electric, which for the occasion was enveloped in two of Vincent van Gogh’s most iconic masterpieces: Almond Blossom and Sunflowers.
There will be no direct successor to Ioniq itself. His passion will live on in new generation battery-electric models such as the IONIQ 5 and the upcoming IONIQ 6 and IONIQ 7.
