This electric vehicle is not available yetThe second generation IONIQ hasn't been formally announced by Hyundai. The new IONIQ is expected to become available in September 2019 and will receive several updates to both the exterior and interior. The most important update will be the battery, which will be increased to around 40 kWh. This should result in around 235 miles on the NEDC cycle. The real range should however be closer to 160 miles, which is about 33% more than the current IONIQ. All specifications with * are estimates.

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 Gen 2 Electric. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
NOTE: Hyundai has not released details about the on-board charger of the IONIQ Gen 2. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.
|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||13 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x29A||6.6 kW †||7 hours||23 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW †||12h15m||13 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||230V / 1x29A||6.6 kW †||7 hours||23 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 Gen 2 Electric.
Hyundai has not released details about rapid charging the IONIQ Gen 2. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.
- 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||40 min||160 mph|
|CCS (100 kW DC)||100 kW||80 kW †||25 min||260 mph|
|CCS (175 kW DC)||100 kW †||80 kW †||25 min||260 mph|
† = Limited by fastcharge capabilities of vehicle
NOTE: Most rapid charges are currently limited to 50 kW. Chargers with more power are expected in the near future.
All about the Hyundai IONIQ Gen 2 Electric
The Hyundai IONIQ Gen 2 Electric has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £30,000. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Hyundai IONIQ Gen 2 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 Gen 2 Electric is £26,500.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Hyundai IONIQ Gen 2 Electric is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Hyundai IONIQ Gen 2 Electric is 88 kW (118 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 218 lb-ft. The Hyundai IONIQ Gen 2 Electric is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 10.0 seconds. The estimated top speed is 103 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Hyundai IONIQ Gen 2 Electric has an estimated total capacity of 38.3 kWh. The usable capacity is 38.3 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 160 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 240 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 6.6 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 7 hours. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 19 hours 45 minutes.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 100 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 80 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 25 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 110 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Hyundai IONIQ Gen 2 Electric is about 235.0 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 169 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 330.0 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 155.0 Wh per mile.
The Hyundai IONIQ Gen 2 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.
