The daily commute to work or other activities in the day can consume a significant amount of money from our paychecks. But what if there’s a way to possibly make that daily drive without having to use a drop of gasoline?
This is exactly what the Chevrolet Volt and Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid have to offer. These two plug-ins are amazing options for people looking to save on cost while being eco-friendly.
But which of these two vehicles should you go for? Read more below for additional details.
The powertrains of both the Chevy Volt and Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid offer advanced capabilities. However, you won’t know all about that just by their looks.
These vehicles have advanced powertrains that bypass the wild styling buyers used to know and instead follow a more toned-down approach. This allows such rigs to be suitable for a wide range of owners.
The Chevrolet Volt is 180.4 inches in length, 71.2 inches wide, and 56.4 inches tall. Meanwhile, it has a 106.1 wheelbase to add to that. The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid is 176 inches long, 71.7 inches wide, and approximately 57 inches tall. It also has a wheelbase of 106.3 inches.
In terms of outward appearance, the Chevrolet Volt has the sportier look, while the Hyundai Ioniq has the more traditional vibe.
When talking about interiors, both vehicles have the same traditional appeal, making them ideal for most buyers. The interior of the Volt is higher on the tech side with blue accents as well as a digital instrument cluster. On the other hand, the Ioniq has the more sportier look with a flat-bottom steering wheel as well as a horizontally-leaning dash.
You can expect the Chevy Volt to have 37.8 inches of headroom for the front seats, 42.1 inches of legroom, 56.5 inches of shoulder space, and 53.7 inches for hip room. Meanwhile, the Hyundai Ioniq has more space than the Volt, but not by much.
If you want more shoulder room, the Chevy Volt makes for a good choice. But if you’re into headroom and legroom, then you want to go with the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.
Despite being hybrid models, they aren’t exactly vehicles that are slow and sluggish. In fact, the Chevy Volt uses a unique powertrain that combines gasoline and electricity to add to its performance. You can expect its electric motor to produce 149 horsepower and 294 lb-ft of torque.
Meanwhile, the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid has a traditional powertrain that uses electricity for propulsion when the battery has sufficient charge but can revert to the traditional hybrid setup once it’s depleted. You can expect its gasoline engine to produce 104 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. Combined, the propulsion of this vehicle can generate 139 horsepower and a sprint speed of 10.8 seconds from 0 to 60.
