Simple and convenient.

Charging your electric vehicle is simple, just plug-in and charge. With new charging stations in cities, shopping centres and motorway service stations being continually developed there are plenty of options whilst on the go. Or alternatively home charging options are available to charge from the comfort of your own home. 

Technology

Normal AC and fast DC charging.

There are two types of electric vehicle charging: normal alternating current (AC) charging and fast direct current (DC) charging. Normal AC charging is typically less energy-intensive which makes it much slower. When you charge at home using a conventional plug or home EV charger, or even at some public stations, you will be using AC. Fast DC charging can be completed in under an hour and is typically only found at public charging stations.

    Home EV chargers 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. When connected to an ultra-fast 350kW charger, IONIQ 5 & IONIQ 6 are capable of charging from 10-80% in as little as 18-36 minutes. 1

Factors that affect charging times.

When it comes to charging, every plug is not created equal – or better said: there are many factors that affect how fast your EV can charge: Like the size and state of charge of the battery. Or the max charging rate of the vehicle as well as the max charging rate of the charge point. And of course, environmental factors – batteries don’t like extreme heat or cold.

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.


    Home Charging

    Charge 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 conveniently charge your electric vehicle at any time. A home charging station can be wall-mounted (in a garage) or stand-alone (outside). Your Hyundai retailer can help you plan the setup that’s right for you. Charging an electric vehicle 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 home EV charger in the garage or carpark of the building. You might have to cover the costs partially or completely on your own. Alternatively, you can search for public charging stations near you e.g. in front of supermarkets or public buildings.

    Ohme

    Our recommended home EV charger provider

    The best way to minimise your electric car charge cost is to charge at home. 

    Hyundai recommend Ohme as our preferred home EV charger supplier.

    Ohme's unique tech integrates with all energy tariffs, including Intelligent Octopus and OVO Charge Anytime, so that you can charge at the cheapest and greenest times available. Running a Hyundai IONIQ 6 Single Motor RWD with its 77.4kWh battery (WLTP range: 338mls) and an Ohme smart charger on Intelligent Octopus Go*, for example, could cost £116.80 for a year for an average UK driver doing 6,800 miles. By comparison, charging on the Standard Variable Tariff would cost £451.62 for the same distance and an equivalent petrol car would be more than £1,200.

    Your local Hyundai Retailer can help you order 7.4 kW Ohme Home Pro or 7.4 kW Ohme ePod at a price, reserved to Hyundai customers.

    You may be also eligible for the EV chargepoint grant (1)⁠⁠⁠ to help you with your electric car charger installation cost if you own or rent a flat (you can get either £350 or 75% off the cost to buy and install a socket, whichever amount is lower.) Ohme team will help with this process too.

    *Intelligent Octopus Go at 7.5p/kWh for 23.30-05.30am, Standard Variable Tariff – 29p/kWh

    1. The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) replaced the Electric Vehicle Homecharge scheme (EVHS) with the new EV charge point grant. The Government grants are subject to full terms and conditions and eligibility may be revised or withdrawn at any time without prior notice. This information is correct as of December 2023.

      Public Charging

      Charge on the road, at the shops, and at work.

      Charging an electric vehicle is different than filling up with petrol. You can plug in for a short time when you stop at the shops, adding range to get you home. And many employers now offer charging points. And for charging on a road trip – Charge myHyundai is an easy-to-use public charging solution that gives you access to charging points in 30 European countries with one app.

Actual time will vary and is dependent on several factors including battery temperature, condition and age, ambient temperature and the power provided by the charger. Charge time increases in cold weather and if battery temperature activates safeguarding technology.
