Electric Vehicle FAQ
How and where do I charge?
When it comes to charging your EV, your options will depend on how developed the charging infrastructure is where you live.
Depending on your grid connection at home or the type of public charging station you have access to, electric vehicles like the KONA Electric give you flexible possibilities for charging.
When charging at home, you’ll need to have the option to park off the street, although on-street charging is available in an increase. For home charging, many drivers of electric vehicles choose to have a wall-mounted charging point installed at home for faster charging vs. a normal wall socket. Depending on your country of residence, you might be eligible for government grants to help with the costs of installation. Once your home charging station is installed, you can plug your EV in overnight, and wake up to a fully charged battery.
At the same time, more and more companies are offering their employees the option to charge their EVs at the office. Companies can receive tax breaks for offering these incentives, helping the programs to grow. With various options available, driving an EV ultimately means learning a new way of “filling up”. For example: when you go to the supermarket, the movies or to a restaurant with friends, remember to check where the closest public charging station is. Then simply plug in and charge up for the time your car is parked. EVs offer a range of on-board systems and apps that help you plan your journey and find a charging station. Hyundai’s Bluelink® Connected Car Services shows you real-time charging station information such as location, connector types, and availability: on your phone and on your car’s display.
Step by step, e-mobility is becoming the standard of the industry. And while some car brands just announce sustainable cars, Hyundai has already brought three zero-emission cars onto the road. We are pioneers in Hydrogen Fuel-Cell technology with the NEXO, and we also introduced Europe’s first fully-electric sub-compact SUV with the KONA Electric. And we won’t stop here. Electric awaits. Next Awaits.
