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 Electric. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||19h45m||8 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||12h15m||14 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x31A||7.2 kW †||6h15m||26 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW †||12h15m||14 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||230V / 1x31A||7.2 kW †||6h15m||26 mph|
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)
Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Hyundai IONIQ Electric.
- Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
- Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
- Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
- Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
|Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Avg. Power||Time||Rate|
|CCS (50 kW DC)||50 kW||45 kW †||36 min||190 mph|
|CCS (100 kW DC)||70 kW †||65 kW †||25 min||270 mph|
|CCS (150 kW DC)||70 kW †||65 kW †||25 min||270 mph|
|CCS (175 kW DC)||70 kW †||65 kW †||25 min||270 mph|
† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle
Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.
All about the Hyundai IONIQ Electric
The Hyundai IONIQ Electric has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £32,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Hyundai IONIQ Electric is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Hyundai IONIQ Electric is £29,000.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Hyundai IONIQ Electric is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Hyundai IONIQ Electric is 101 kW (135 hp). The maximum torque is 218 lb-ft. The Hyundai IONIQ Electric is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 10.0 seconds. The top speed is 103 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Hyundai IONIQ Electric has an estimated total capacity of 38.3 kWh. The usable capacity is 38.3 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 165 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 115 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 245 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 7.2 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 6 hours 15 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 19 hours 45 minutes.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 70 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 65 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 25 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 115 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Hyundai IONIQ Electric is about 230 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 174 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 330 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 155 Wh per mile.
The Hyundai IONIQ Electric emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
The model shown on this page is the successor of the Hyundai IONIQ Electric. The previous model was £1750 less expensive, had 45 mi less range, same acceleration and was similar in energy consumption.
