The Ioniq is a sound choice if you want to buy new.
If the shape of it does not offend you, consider a second gen Insight which looks like the Ioniq stole its molds. Not as economical as the Ioniq but dirt cheap second hand and fairly reliable.
Avoid 2013 and early 2014s unless they had an engine/piston ring rebuild.

Me, I wish I had an EV. My next car will be an EV.
