What do you think about plug-in vehicles?

hyundai-ioniqNearly 275,000 people signed up to be first to get on the list for the new, clean and green Tesla car made for the masses – well, not made yet, but in production.

That’s a whole lot of green thinkers, and potentially green automotive drivers pining for something that doesn’t exist quite yet.

Are you one of them?

At Key Hyundai, Connecticut’s new and used car dealership we’ve seen an uptick in people asking about cleaner, greener vehicles. The recent Tesla news has drivers lining up for efficient green cars – 275,000 – and Hyundai is answering the call, turning heads at the New York Auto Show with a sporty, affordable energy efficient model: the Hyundai Ioniq.

Listen to Jill Merriam’s Dealer For The People, share in her Nicer, Newer News video more more about the latest and greatest Hyundai hybrid, electric, and plug-in automotive solutions:

The Hyundai Ioniq is a completely new vehicle from Hyundai, and will definitely give Tesla lovers something to think about.
