Hyundai has announced pricing and specs for its three-pronged Ioniq range in Australia, with the eagerly-anticipated pure-electric model to kick off at $44,990 before on-road costs.
The cheapest model will be the series hybrid, priced from $33,990 before on-roads, while the plug-in hybrid will start at $40,990.
