Hyundai said it will provide 250 kilowatt-hours of complimentary charging on Electrify America’s charging network for owners of 2021 Kona Electric and 2021 Ioniq Electric models.
The 250 kilowatt-hours equals about 1,000 miles of EPA estimated driving range for either of the EVs, according to the automaker. Customers can access their complimentary charging via the Electrify America mobile app that will also help drivers find and navigate to Electrify America stations and to start a charging session.
Electrify America has more than 2,400 ultra-fast chargers across the country, according to teh company. Stations are conveniently located along major routes and in metro areas, and placed near shopping, banking and dining amenities.
Each station has between three and ten individual DC fast chargers to accommodate multiple vehicles charging at one time. The chargers utilize the fastest technology available today – providing speeds of up to 150kW and 350kW for capable vehicles – to help reduce the amount of time spent charging, Hyundai said.
Since Electrify America installed its first charging station in May 2018, the company has on average added four charging stations per week. Across the country, 96% of the population live within 120 miles of an Electrify America charger. Hyundai customers will be able to manage their fast charging plan through Electrify America’s mobile app.
