Gotta have the hatch. After having the Prius I could never go back to a sedan. Unless I bought another 92-00 Civic and cut out the rear deck :P.
The old RAV4 and the 10-15 prius were similar in interior volume. Rav 4 beat it by 3-4 cuft. The Ioniq is essentially a Prius competitor. Similar cabin size. Don't remember if the inside was more or less. I test drove it and noticed the dash and console are smaller which does give more room. All essentially the same as the CUV market.
I do think the Bolt is a smaller car than the Prius though. Sad considering its a way better deal than the Ioniq.

Honestly, with the $200 EV tax now and the $100 hybrid tax, gas at 2.00 even and e rates at 0.10/kWh here I'm only seeing a savings of 1.6c/mi.
For the average driver at 13,000 mi per year thats $200 saved. Also, thats a 2010 prius vs the ioniq ev.

I know someone who got a 2020 Bolt EV for about $29K.

The biggest issue with the Ioniq EV - is availability.
Sincerely, Neil

I have a 2019 Ioniq EV, and love it. Can get up to 6mi/kWh in the summer, and even this week with freezing temp mornings in Maine got over 4mi/kWh.

Hopefully the cold temps and lack of equivalent (to GM, 2020 Ioniq, etc.) thermal management won't result in a short battery life.
