Hyundai Motor America will provide 250 kilowatt-hours of complimentary charging on Electrify America ‘s ultra-fast charging network for owners of 2021 Kona Electric and IONIQ Electric models.

Customers can access their complimentary charging using the Electrify America mobile app that will also help drivers find and navigate to stations and to start a charging session. 250 kilowatt-hours equals about 1,000 miles of EPA estimated driving range in a 2021 Kona Electric or Ioniq Electric.

“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 models’ higher power charging capabilities.”

Electrify America has 2,400 ultra-fast chargers across the US. Stations are located along major routes and in metro areas, strategically 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 use 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.

Since VW Group-backed Electrify America installed its first charging station in May 2018, the company has on average added four charging stations per week.
