You'll be lucky to get 600 miles out of anything if you drive those Cincinnati hills on a regular basis! I don't miss driving there, especially in winter

The PHEV Ioniq kind of reminds me of my Volt. The site says it only does 29 electric miles before kicking in the ICE, but it's definitely cheaper out the gate than a Volt and has a longer overall range! It's pretty nice looking, but like the Volt it looks like the back seat is pretty small. I just lay down my back seats since I never have anybody in the back of mine, I can put a lot of stuff in the back since it's a hatch
The cars are pretty comparable, but if you have a sub-60 mile daily commute you can make it on EV only in a Volt, and still have over a 400 mile range if you need to go farther.
