Electrify America and Hyundai will provide all-electric Hyundai Ioniq 5 drivers with two years of unlimited 30-minute complimentary charging sessions from the date of purchase at Electrify America charging stations.
This announcement builds on an existing agreement between the two companies to provide 250 kilowatt-hours of complimentary charging on Electrify America’s network for owners of 2021 Kona Electric and Ioniq Electric models. Electrify America’s ultra-fast charging network provides speeds of up to 150kW and 350kW for capable vehicles.
Ioniq 5 can support both 400V and 800V charging infrastructures. The platform offers 800V charging capability as standard, and can accommodate 400V charging without the need for additional components or adapters. The multi-charging system operates the motor and inverter to boost 400V to 800V for stable charging compatibility. With a 350-kW charger, Ioniq 5 can charge from 10% to 80% in 18 minutes, the company says.
On the heels of completing two cross-country and two coastal routes in 2020, Electrify America says it is on track to have 800 charging stations with about 3,500 chargers open or under development by the end of 2021.
