Faster, closer and more affordable.
Charging your electric vehicles has never been easier. City and national governments all over Europe are fast-tracking new charging stations in cities, shopping centres and on highways. And electricity is cheaper than petrol and diesel, so you’ll save money in the long run.
Normal AC and fast DC charging.
Normal charging with alternate current (AC).
Wallboxes for home charging typically provide up to 22 kW. The on-board charger converts AC into the DC energy that is stored in the vehicle's high voltage battery. Plugging into a regular home socket also charges with AC current.
Fast-charging with direct current (DC).When charging with direct current (DC) the vehicle’s on-board charger is bypassed, so charging can be much faster. As a general rule of thumb, DC fast-charging is defined as everything in the range of 50 kW to 150 kW.
Ultra-fast charging with direct current (DC).As a general rule of thumb, DC ultra fast-charging is defined as everything in the range of 150 kW to 350 kW. At an ultra-fast 350 kW charger, IONIQ 6 can add up to 351 km of range in just 15 minutes – or charge from 10 to 80% in just 18 minutes! Hyundai’s world’s-first technology in IONIQ 5 & 6 supports both 400V and 800V charging infrastructure.

Factors that affect charging times.
How often do you need to charge?
Set the bar according to your daily commute and calculate the number of 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.
Charge at home.
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.
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.
Charge on the road, at the shops, and at work.
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.
On the road.
Once you have chosen a charging network (it’s a little like choosing mobile service provider), your 5 years free Hyundai LIVE Services subscription will show you real-time charging station information such as location, charger and connector types and availability. So you will never have to waste your time worrying about running out of battery.2
