The Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In has gone off sale but since most models still have plenty left on the generous five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty, it’s a smart used buy. We’d expect it to be very reliable – Hyundai wouldn’t offer this level of coverage if it wasn’t – but even if you have issues, they can be sorted under warranty for years to come.

Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In reliability & problems

Along with the normal car warranty, you get eight years of cover for the battery against loss of performance. Hyundai managed a 16th-place finish out of 29 manufactures in the 2021 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, which was a worse performance than in previous years. However the Ioniq was one of the best cars to own in the same year - it came in 27th place in the top 75, a really good result. Hyundai’s Kona came first in the poll, too, showing how dependable and good to own the maker’s modern cars are.

Safety

There should be no such worries regarding safety, with the Ioniq posting impressive Euro NCAP crash-test results. Despite the tests getting more stringent in recent years, the Ioniq easily obtained the full five stars, with an impressive 91% for adult occupant protection and 80% for child occupant protection. Just as impressive is the 82% in the safety assistance category, which takes into account the included safety technology.

Seven airbags are fitted and the latest iteration of Hyundai’s SmartSense safety pack includes front collision warning, lane-keeping assistance and auto-dipping headlights as standard. Lane-following assistance and smart cruise control are available on some trims, allowing the Ioniq to maintain a set distance to the car ahead and automatically come to a complete stop if required.
