Charging on the road.
Easy and convenient public charging.
With more and more charging stations available, easier plug compatibility symbols, and providers like Charge myHyundai and IONITY providing ultra-fast charging capacity of up to 350 kW, public charging has never been easier.
Type 2 cable.Just like wallboxes, most public charging stations work with alternating current (AC) and require the same Type 2 cable. The on-board-charger then converts the alternating current (AC) into direct current (DC). The charging speed (maximum charging capacity per hour) is determined by the power of the charging station, usually between 11 and 43 kW (3-phased) or your car's on-board-charger, usually 7.2 kW (1-phased) or 10.5 kW (3-phased) – whichever has the lower kW.
CCS type 2 cable.Fast-charging stations use direct current (DC) and usually have a permanently connected Combined Charging System cable (CCS or Combo 2). These cables are similar to Type 2 cables but have two additional contacts to allow high-power DC fast-charging. The charging speed is not limited by your car's on-board-charger which is completely bypassed (it doesn't need to convert from AC to DC). CCS cables can transmit up to 350 kW but few charging stations deliver that kind of speed.
For AC charging, all you have to do is match the label of your vehicle with the corresponding label on the charging station. For example: "C" on your KONA Electric to "C" on a charging station.
For DC charging, all you have to do is match the label of your vehicle with the corresponding label on the charging station. For example: "L" on your IONIQ 5 to "L" on a charging station.

Copy about the following graph, description of what we're showing here.
*Maximum range according to WLTP combined cycle. Specification dependent. Actual range will vary depending on factors including road conditions, outdoor temperature, driving style, use of climate control and battery condition.
**350KW ultra-fast charger required for quickest charge times - chargers are currently available on selected arterial routes – see Charge myHyundai map for details. Not currently available in Northern Ireland.
Hyundai test data for comparison purposes. 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.
In optimal conditions, the latest IONIQ 5 is capable of accepting power at up to 240KW and IONIQ 6 at 220KW.
