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 power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point 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 † 38 min 180 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 70 kW † 65 kW † 26 min 260 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 70 kW † 65 kW † 26 min 260 mph
CCS (175 kW DC) 70 kW † 65 kW † 26 min 260 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

Pricing

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 a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the invoice 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 100 kW (134 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 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 115 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

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.

CO2 Emission

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.

Preceding model

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.
