    Apart from another opportunity to make poor Alanis Morissette-based jokes, this is our chance to drive the all-electric version of the Hyundai Ioniq on UK roads.

    Hyundai's electric offering drives well, but its range will soon slip behind ever- improving rivals.

    The sporty D-cut steering wheel is equipped with paddles that control the variable regenerative braking. More important is the smooth power delivery and complete absence of vibration from under the bonnet. The electric models are only available in Premium and Premium SE trim, with 16in alloy wheels, heated steering wheel and front seats, climate control, automatic lights and wipers, LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, electric windows, rear parking sensors and a reversing camera.

    There is good reason for the fitment of a torsion beam rear axle, though. Indeed, the lithium ion cells have enough juice to give the Ioniq a maximum potential range of miles. As for the hybrid models , the electric motor is paired to a 1. With bhp, the Electric may be the least powerful Ioniq , but it is, nevertheless, the fastest.

    A substantial Ib ft of torque from rest and no pauses to change gear result in a mph time that just squeaks under 10 seconds. At urban speeds, the Ioniq feels even quicker than that. To put it in context the hybrid models can only muster a mph time of That instant torque can overwhelm the economy-biased tyres, though. In the wet, the traction control has to cut in hard if you try to accelerate quickly. Turn it off and the Ioniq will spin its front wheels all the way up to 35mph.

    Not that performance is really a selling point of the Ioniq , more a handy by-product of the electric powertrain. More important is the smooth power delivery and complete absence of vibration from under the bonnet. Like other electric cars, it proves far more serene than a diesel or even petrol engine. The motor may be quiet, but it does highlight other noises. It may be happy enough to build speed, but the brakes take some getting used to. Initial response is very sharp, but it feels like you need to push the pedal a long way further to get any meaningful stopping power.

    You can alter how much the car decelerates when you lift off by using what look like gearshift paddles behind the steering wheel. The Ioniq starts with fairly weak regenerative braking initially, but this can be ramped up to slow the car faster and increase the amount of energy that goes back into the battery pack. We soon turned it back down again to make smoother progress. Hyundai suggests that the Ioniq Electric should offer decent driving dynamics.

    Pitch the car into a corner harder and you can tell the weight balance of the car is more even than that of a front-engined, front wheel-drive hatch, though. With this in mind, we would have liked more compliance from the suspension at urban speeds. Things do settle down at motorway speeds, though. Up front, you get plenty of soft-touch materials on the upper portion of the dash and doors, with harder materials underneath.

    Everything is nicely textured and the controls work with precision. There is no gear selector lever, just buttons to select Park, Neutral, Drive or Reverse. You also get a responsive 8.

    As for trim levels, there are three to choose from for hybrid models and two for the pure electric versions. Fancy an Ioniq Hybrid and opt for the entry-level SE model expect to find 15in alloys, cloth seats, dual-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control, electric windows, rear parking sensors, reversing camera, lane departure warning system and autonomous emergency braking system as standard.

    The electric models are only available in Premium and Premium SE trim, with 16in alloy wheels, heated steering wheel and front seats, climate control, automatic lights and wipers, LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, electric windows, rear parking sensors and a reversing camera.

    The range-topping Premium SE models get all-round parking sensors, a leather upholstery and heated rear seats thrown into the package. An internal combustion engine rival will still be cheaper to buy and in many cases better to drive, while the Ioniq Hybrid may be the perfect compromise. Our first UK drive of the plug-in hybrid version of the Ioniq confirms its frugality - but it can't challenge for class honours.
