On Top Gear, Porsche Taycan Turbo S (Yes, the Turbo S bit was discussed). Not exactly slow (either to 120MP/H or to charge when hit with a 275KW/H charger).

Todays charging companion, not the 100% BEV the KIA e-Niro but

The KIA Niro Eco Plug-in. Yes a hybrid. Here is the KIA league table of electricness.

You will see that the Self-Charging Hybrid, and the Mild Hybrid have an "all electric" range of precisely Zero :-D

Nice work Mick, the KIA e-Soul, maybe it’s debut on the spotting thread.

Edit quick check in the archives and it appears 3 forum heavyweights have declared sightings, mandrake, Richard W, and Zelandeth....but..photographs trump all of that of course :-D

Just wait until Hyundai are tempted to set up their first factory in the UK to beef up the EV revolution, they will be all over the place :-D

Did the Ioniq have the fully blanked off grill ?

If not it was either a hybrid or ICE. I see far more Ioniq hybrids than I do the BEV version with the blanked off grill.
