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.
How long is your daily commute?
Calculate the number of commute days between charges.
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.
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.
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.
