Paul Tench, Group sales director from JT Hughes Hyundai comments on the IONIQ:
“We are really excited about the new Hyundai IONIQ coming to Shropshire. It is not just an amazing looking car that provides class-leading practicality and technology, but with both full electric and hybrid versions of the car being made available, it will also provide Shropshire people with real alternatives to standard petrol and diesel cars. We are proud that we are one of only a few selected Hyundai dealers across the country that will be selling the IONIQ, and as such we have product specialists available in our showrooms to answer any questions that anyone interested in the car may have and to explain the real benefits of owning a hybrid or electric car".
