Does the 2021 Hyundai Ioniq PHEV have sufficient power for overtaking on long drive?
The Ioniq PHEV is not exactly a fast car in terms of its acceleration, but it will comfortably cruise at the legal limit. Certainly there are cars that are better at overtaking than the Hyundai PHEV, but it will still accelerate around slower traffic on the highway.
Overtaking is a bit of a lost art these days with dual-lane freeways and it really doesn’t matter how powerful your car is if you don’t know how to overtake safely. The other thing to consider is that hybrids like the Ioniq are at their best in city and suburban traffic where the harvesting of energy otherwise lost during braking makes them most relevant. If all your driving is over long distances at cruising velocities, a conventional car with a conventional driveline might make more sense.
