IONIQ 6 vs. Model 3: Ownership Experience

When you purchase a vehicle, having a positive ownership experience is vital. Let’s explore why owning a Hyundai IONIQ 6 is the better option.


  • Tesla: You can only visit a Tesla dealership for service, and you won’t find many locations between Spring Valley and Las Vegas. 
  • Hyundai: There are numerous Hyundai dealerships near you, so you won’t have to worry about traveling far or disrupting your busy schedule when you need a battery inspection or other maintenance. You can visit other dealerships near North Las Vegas to have your vehicle serviced, but our technicians know Hyundai vehicles inside and out.


  • Hyundai: Hyundai is known for offering one of the best warranties among OEMs, especially for electric vehicles. Hyundai offers up to eight years or 160,000 miles, whichever comes first.
  • Tesla: With the Model 3, you only get eight years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first. Those extra 10,000 miles can help those on a tighter budget.
