Charging at home.

For more convenience and faster charging at home, you should have a dedicated home charger, also known as a wallbox installed. These units are fused independently from the household circuit, and can be used any time of day or for overnight charging.

Wallboxes are more than boxes on a wall.

They charge electric cars much faster than a domestic socket, but that's not where wallbox functionality ends.

    Battery Protection.

    The safety features of a wallbox harmonise the electric current when your car is plugged in and protects your car battery from damage that can be inflicted by power surges.

    If you are interested in how efficiently your Hyundai electric vehicle is charging, you can compare consumption on a daily or weekly basis to be aware of costs and power use.

  3. Programming the charging process on the KONA Electric touchscreen.


    You can charge your car during cycles of cheaper electricity, e.g. late at night, by programming the wallbox directly or by using the infotainment system of your vehicle or the Bluelink App.

    One charging station is not like the other.

    While wall-mounted stations are most common in private homes, stand-alone systems are a great alternative when wallboxes are not an option or when more than one car is being charged.

      Wallboxes are usually mounted to garage walls. They support charging with up to 22 kW (depending on your vehicle‘s on-board charger and on your actual domestic power supply).

      Stand-alone charging points for private households can be placed in garages, parking lots, or carports. They can charge up to two electric cars at the same time with up to 11 kW each (depending on your vehicle‘s on-board charger and on your actual domestic power supply).

    Do you need all the power you can get?

    The power of wallboxes installed in private households ranges from 2.3 to 22 kW, depending on the car and the building's electric circuit.

    It’s simple math.

    Larger electric vehicle batteries take longer to fully charge and higher wallbox power means faster charging. When it comes to the power of a wallbox, all of the following factors will be considered:

    The power of the on-board-charger of your car.
    More powerful on-board-chargers can receive higher inputs from the wallbox, shortening  charging times.

    Your car's total battery capacity.
    Higher capacity batteries take longer to fully charge. More wallbox power means quicker charging.

    The building's power supply (circuit size).
    The amount of power the building's electric circuit can provide may limit the amount of power the wallbox can deliver, limiting the charging speed.
    A qualified electrician knows how to figure those numbers out for you.

      11 kW Wallbox.

      The IONIQ 5 is equipped with a powerful 11 kW on-board charger, so a wallbox with 11 kW would be ideal to charge either the 58 kWh or 77.4 kWh battery it can be equipped with.

      The KONA Electric is available with 7.2 kW OBC on-board charger (OBC) as standard as well as an optional 10.5 kW OBC for faster charging. So depending on your choice, a 7.2 or 11 kW wallbox is needed for effective home charging.

      7.2 kW Wallbox, or more.

      The current IONIQ Electric with a 38.3 kWh battery has a 7.2 kW on-board-charger, so a wallbox with 7.2 kW will be sufficient. Of course, you can always install a wallbox with more power than you currently need – and be ready for the future of Hyundai electric vehicles.

    Charging times

    Charging times of our electric vehicles.

    Charging times depend on the size and state of charge of your battery, your on-board charger – and the output capacity of the wallbox or the public charging station. Depending on your grid connection at home or the type of charging station you have access to, Hyundai electric vehicles give you a range of flexible AC and DC charging possibilities.

    Cables & Plugs

    When charging at home.

    There are two options for charging an electric vehicle at a private residence: a wallbox or a regular home power outlet. They supply completely different kinds of voltages and power outputs and different cables are needed to plug in.
    1. The AC type 2 charging cable plugs for Hyundai electric vehicles.

      Type 2 cable.

      Typical wallboxes work with 230V (1-phased) or 400V (3-phased) alternating current (AC). Cars are plugged in with Type 2 cables. Depending on the wallbox, the cable might be permanently connected to the box, or have plugs at both ends. They support a charging speed of up to 22 kW.

      ICCB cable.

      To charge your electric vehicle from a domestic 230 Volt socket you need an ICCB-cable (In-Cable Control Box). They have a household plug at one end and a Type 2 plug at the other. The control box communicates between the charging port and the vehicle to ensure safe charging. Because ICCB cables and wall outlets only allow for up to 2.7kW (depending on domestic electric power supply and ICCB setting) charging, the process takes a lot longer. And because residential circuits are not built for that kind of continuous strain, plugging into a regular power outlet should only ever be a fall-back solution.
