Time for some clarity.

Maybe you are concerned about electric vehicle range and where to charge on longer road trips. Or about the driving experience. Let us address those concerns.

Just as there is a range of factors that affect the fuel efficiency of an internal combustion engine (ICE), the total electric driving range will be affected by the size of the battery, your driving style, the outside temperature, any passengers you are carrying and more.


    How to charge your electric vehicle at home.

    When it comes to charging your electric vehicle, your options will depend on the charging infrastructure where you live.

      If you own.

      By installing a home charging station you can significantly reduce charging times compared to charging at a domestic socket. A home charging station can be wall-mounted (in a garage) or stand-alone (outside). Your Hyundai dealer will help you plan the setup that’s right for you. Charging an electric car feels like charging a mobile phone - plug in overnight and start your day with a charged car. You can also choose to plug into a standard power outlet, which will require longer charging times.

      If you rent.

      You can talk to your landlord to get permission to install a wallbox in the garage or parking lot of the building. You might have to cover the costs partially or completely on your own, but government grants may be available as well. Alternatively, you can search for public charging stations near your apartment, e.g. in front of supermarkets or public buildings.

    How to charge your electric vehicle at work.

    Many companies already offer charging stations for their employees and visitors. And many countries already offer tax incentives and grants to install them. Talk to your employer to get charging points at your workplace.

    How to charge your electric vehicle on the road.

    Once you have chosen a charging network (it’s a little like choosing mobile service provider), your 5 years free LIVE Services subscription will show you real-time charging station information such as location, connector types and availability (free LIVE Services only available in combination with navigation system). So you will never have to waste your time worrying about running out of battery.

    Across borders.

    Exploring with a free mind is what Hyundai electric vehicles are all about – so please, take your car across the border. If you are driving a fully-electric vehicle, it’s important to plan your route ahead of time, so you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee at a rest stop that has fast-charging stations. And to make travelling even more convenient, LIVE Services bring you real-time charging station information in other countries, too. Charging stations are available to you all over Europe and their number continues to grow.

    It's fun to drive!

    Electric vehicles (EV) are typically equipped with a single-speed reduction gear, so there’s no more shifting. As a result, the ride is smooth, silent and the response is almost instantaneous.

    And EVs accelerate surprisingly quickly. Just because you don’t have a 6 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine on board doesn’t mean that EVs are slow. EVs deliver instant torque and impressive acceleration. Despite the extra weight a battery brings, EVs are quick off the line and deliver a smooth and constant acceleration.

    Although fast and powerful, EVs drive very quietly. There is still noise from the tyres on the road and the wind rushing around the car, but on electric power alone, they are comparatively quiet. This results in a peaceful and relaxing driving experience.

    When it all comes down to it, an EV is still an automobile. There is nothing scary or difficult about driving one. If you can drive a conventional automobile, you can drive an EV.
