Hyundai News – December 2018

Introducing the IONIQ Electric Vehicle, sales and service news.


The new Hyundai IONIQ range was recently launched in Australia, and Doncaster Hyundai is lucky enough to be one of the first dealerships in Australia able to not only sell the range, but we’re factory trained to service the new vehicles.

With a great mixture of technology and style, the Ioniq is the first Hyundai to offer three electrified powertrains within the one body type: Hybrid, Electric and Plug-in Hybrid.

Prices start from an incredible $33,990 before on-roads for the Hybrid, $40,990 BOR for the Plug-in Hybrid and $44,990 BOR for the Electric model.

The full range is now available to test drive at Doncaster Hyundai. Be one of the first to drive the future by calling Doncaster Hyundai on (03) 9039 3130, or click here to make an enquiry.
