Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

All about the Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in

Pricing

The Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £26,856 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £27,495. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £2,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in is £24,995.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). The maximum power of the Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in is 104 kW (139 hp). The maximum torque is 195 lb-ft. The Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 10.6 seconds. The top speed is 110 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in has a total capacity of 8.9 kWh. The usable capacity is 7.1 kWh (estimate). A range of about 26 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 19 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 35 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 3.3 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 2 hours 45 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 3 hours 45 minutes.

Rapid charging is not possible.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in is about 270 Wh per mile in electric-only mode. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 148 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 370 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 200 Wh per mile.

Fuel Consumption

The Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in has a combined (electric and fuel) range of about 554 mi, of which about 26 of fully electric range. Please note that, even when driving in full-electric mode, the internal combustion engine may kick in under high loads.

When the battery is empty or 'hold charge' mode is engaged, the fuel consumption is about 56 mpg on the combined (motorway and city) cycle. When starting off with a full battery and applying a moderate driving style, no fuel is consumed over a 15 mile trip and fuel consumption is about 188 mpg over a 30 mile trip and 86 mpg over a 60 mile trip.

The combined average consumption of petrol of the Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in will therefor depend on the average trip distance and whether the car is charged before each trip. Climate, driving style and route will have a further impact on the actual fuel consumption. The official figures in accordance with the NEDC driving cycle for fuel consumption of 260 mpg and a range of 690 mi are irrelevant in practice.

CO2 Emission

While driving in full-electric mode, the Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in will not emit any CO2. When the battery is empty, or if the engine load is high, the internal combustion engine will be used. As fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are directly proportional, the average CO2 emssions of a Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in will depend greatly on several key factors that determine fuel consumption. Note: CO2 emissions are calculated per kilometre.

When driving using only the petrol engine, CO2 emissions will be around 117 grams of CO2 per kilometre on the combined (motorway and city) cycle. However, if the average trip distance is relatively short and the car is charged between trips, the average CO2 emissions will be reduced significantly.

CO2 Emissions will drop to 0 g/km on a 15 mile trip, 35 g/km on a 30 mile trip and 77 g/km on a 60 mile trip. This only includes tailpipe CO2 emissions. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels. The offical figures in accordance with the NEDC driving cycle for CO2 emissions of 26 g/km are for comparison of vehicles only and have no relevance in practice.
