Have questions about charging?
You can plug into a standard 120V AC outlet at your home. Getting from 0% to a full charge can take up to 10 hours or more, depending on the vehicle and other conditions. Level 2 charging is much faster but requires specialized equipment that plugs into a 240V AC outlet, which is typically used for larger appliances like dryers and water heaters.
Level 3 DC fast chargers can take your vehicle from 10% to 80% in as little as 25-64 minutes, depending on model. Level 4 350-kW, 800V DC ultra-fast chargers can power up an IONIQ 5 from 10 to 80% in just 18 minutes.
When you coast or brake, the regenerative brakes turn the wheels’ rotations into electricity, which is stored in the battery. IONIQ 5, KONA Electric, and NEXO Fuel Cell have control paddles behind the steering wheel, which let you choose from different levels of regenerative braking.
You can charge as much as you need to get to where you are going. It doesn't need to be charged to 100% every time.
Electricity costs are typically lowest from 11 PM to 7 AM when energy demand is lowest. Check with your power company for off-peak times.
Among our electric models, currently the furthest you can go on a single charge is up to an EPA-est. 303 miles with IONIQ 5 and EPA-est. 258 miles with KONA Electric. With our plug-in hybrid models, you can go up to an EPA-est. 33 miles in all-electric mode with TUCSON Plug-in Hybrid and EPA-est. 30 miles with SANTA FE Plug-in Hybrid.
Cold temperatures can reduce an electric vehicle’s range by about 20 percent and recharging takes longer than in warm weather.
Faster acceleration and higher speeds use more power and therefore drain the battery quicker. Slower braking helps the regenerative brakes to capture more energy for the battery, which may help extend your vehicle’s range.
