2021 Hyundai Ioniq/Kona get 1,000 miles of EA charging as network expands – Electrek

2021 Hyundai Ioniq and Kona owners and prospective owners from today will get a free 250kWh of fast charging at Electrify America (EA) stations as the network continues to expand.

  • 2021 Kona Electric and Ioniq Electric owners can access 250 kWh of complimentary charging (approximately 1,000 miles of EPA estimated driving range )
  • The Electrify America fast-charging network is rated No. 1 by umlaut Inc. in Charged Electric Vehicles Magazine
  • Electrify America has more than 2,400 ultra-fast chargers across the country
  • Across the country, 96% of the population live within 120 miles of an Electrify America charger

Hyundai announced today that it was going to offer its 2021 customers 250kW of Electrify America DC fast charging. At EA’s $.43/kWh à la carte charging fee, the bonus is just about $100 worth of charging, but critically, it makes range anxiety a lot less of a thing.

“We know EV interest and sales are expanding, nationwide and more people are adding chargers to
their homes every day,” said Olabisi Boyle, vice president, product planning and mobility strategy,
Hyundai Motor North America. “Our Kona and Ioniq EV owners are getting additional peace of mind
when heading out on longer trips with prepaid access to Electrify America’s national fast-charging
network. Electrify America’s DC fast chargers more than meet the Kona and Ioniq’s higher power
charging capabilities.”
