Hyundai has announced that all new Ioniq 5 buyers receive two years of free charging at Electrify America charging stations. The free charging sessions will be limited to a maximum of 30-minutes.
This latest announcement builds on a similar one made earlier this year in which Kona and Ioniq buyers would receive 250 kilowatt-hours (1,000 miles) of free charging.
“Recently, we partnered with Electrify America to support owners of the Kona Electric and our IONIQ plug-in sedans. Electrify America’s plan to have a network of over 800 stations by the end of 2021 offers owners the access they need to fully enjoy their EV,” said José Muñoz, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America. “In order to support our IONIQ 5 customers, we will continue to partner with Electrify America to provide convenient, ultra-fast charging stations across the country.”
The Ioniq 5 will be a perfect match for Electrify America’s high-powered 350kW stations. The EV can support both 400V and 800V charging infrastructure, allowing it to charge from 10 percent to 80 percent in 18 minutes at 350kW.
No similar deal has been announced with Electrify Canada for Canadian buyers of the Ioniq 5.
Hyundai is hoping to have the first Ioniq 5 EVs hit showrooms in select regions later this fall. Its impressive specs announced earlier this year are making it one of the most anticipated EVs to launch this year.
