We’ve made it easier than ever to go electrified.
For us, electricity is more than a form of energy. It’s an expansive vehicle lineup that has four different kinds of electrified powertrains. It’s a complete range of energy products that helps you take charge of your home’s electricity. It’s an ingenious EV platform that’s flexible enough to be used for our entire IONIQ series. Electricity powers our belief in the future, which is why our goal is for every Hyundai to be electrified by 2040.
Using motors entirely powered by batteries, electric vehicles give you instant acceleration and nimble handling on the road. They also have bigger batteries than plug-in hybrids or hybrids. This means a much longer electric range—up to an EPA-estimated combined All-Electric Range of 303 miles for IONIQ 5 and 258 miles for KONA Electric. Regenerative braking helps extend the range.
The battery’s recharged by plugging into an outlet, with charging speed depending on the vehicle and type of charger. For instance, IONIQ 5 is capable of ultra-fast charging with an 800V DC charger, which makes it one of the quickest charging EVs.
With a battery-powered motor and a gas engine, plug-in hybrids have bigger batteries than hybrids, so you actually have the option of driving in all-electric mode. You also get an impressive combined range too—as high as 440 miles with SANTA FE Plug-in Hybrid. The battery can be recharged with an electrical outlet, and regenerative braking helps extend driving range.
Hybrids use their gas engine and electric motor separately or together, depending on the speed. It’s why they tend to have better fuel efficiency than their gas-only counterparts. The motor’s battery is recharged by only the regenerative brakes, so there’s no need for you to plug in to an outlet.
Like electric vehicles, fuel cell vehicles also exclusively use a battery-powered motor. But their battery’s recharged by a fuel cell stack that turns liquid hydrogen into electricity. Water’s the only tailpipe emission. Refueling the hydrogen tank is conveniently similar to filling a gas tank, taking about 5 minutes. And you get an EPA-estimated range of up to 380 miles with NEXO Fuel Cell Blue.
Currently, NEXO Fuel Cell is available only at select California dealers.
Find out why electric vehicles are generally more efficient and less expensive to own than cars that use only gas. Even then it still may not be a simple decision, so we’ll explain other things to consider like MPGe and the actual costs of electricity.
Up to $4,500 in potential added savings from a California Clean Vehicle Rebate. Local utilities and other state incentives may also apply.
3-year or $15,000 maximum, whichever comes first.
Filling up with hydrogen is just as easy as pumping gas.
The only thing coming out of the tailpipe is water.
Drive solo in carpool lanes where available.
For added flexibility, you get complimentary car rentals, 7 days a year for 3 years.
The electric motor smoothly delivers instant torque.
Brakes convert energy into electricity, which charges the battery.
Electric vehicles use motors entirely powered by batteries, while plug-in hybrids use both a motor and gas engine. EVs have larger batteries than plug-in hybrids–which means longer all-electric range. Plug-in hybrids can go in all-electric mode for a shorter range compared to EVs but can then travel in hybrid mode.
While both hybrids and plug-in hybrids use a battery-powered motor and a gas engine, plug-in hybrids have bigger batteries than hybrids, which provides you with the option of driving in all-electric mode for a limited range. So while both vehicles recharge with regenerative braking, plug-in hybrid batteries should be recharged with an outlet.
We currently have 9 electrified models in our lineup: 2 electric vehicles, 2 plug-in hybrids, 4 hybrids, and 1 fuel cell vehicle.
Fuel cell vehicles use a motor powered by a battery like EVs. But their battery is recharged by a fuel cell stack that turns liquid hydrogen into electricity. Refueling the hydrogen tank is conveniently similar to filling a gas tank and takes about the same amount of time. There are a limited number of hydrogen fueling stations — use our map to find the ones closest to you.
Several states allow electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids, and fuel cell vehicles to qualify for carpool.
Currently IONIQ 5 RWD has the longest electric range based on EPA estimates, with up to 303 miles on a fully charged battery.
During braking or coasting, regenerative braking turns the wheels’ rotations into electricity, which is then 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.
With electrified vehicles you no longer have to rely on gas as the only source of power. In fact, electric and fuel cell models don’t use fossil fuel at all. Which is why two of the most important questions many shoppers ask is, “How do I keep my electrified vehicle charged?” and “How does it fit into my life?” We’re here to answer these questions and more.
If you’re considering an EV or a plug-in hybrid, it’s important to understand the different types of chargers out there and how long each takes to power up your vehicle.
This is the easiest home charging option, since you simply plug into a standard 120V AC outlet at your home. However, Level 1 charging takes significantly longer than other charging options.
The faster way to charge at home. Level 2 charging requires specialized equipment that plugs into a 240V AC outlet, which is typically used for larger appliances like dryers and water heaters. Fully charging your vehicle can take as little as 7 hours depending on the model and various conditions.
Found at public locations like charging stations and shopping centers–check charging capabilities in your area using our map link below. Using over 480 volts, DC fast chargers can take your vehicle from 10% to 80% in as little as 25-64 minutes, depending on model. Even better, a 350-kW, 800V DC ultra-fast charger can power up an IONIQ 5 from 10 to 80% in just 18 minutes. And you get about 68 miles of range after 5 minutes of charging.
With an expansive network of DC fast-charging stations across the country, you can feel confident there’s always power ahead. And IONIQ 5 and KONA Electric qualify for limited complimentary charging with Electrify America.
Electrify America has built an expansive network of DC fast-charging stations across the country, so you can feel confident there’s always power ahead. And when you purchase IONIQ 5 or KONA Electric, you get limited complimentary charging.
Making the switch from a gas to an electrified vehicle is a big decision. One great reason to go electric is lower overall energy costs. To make it easier to compare electric with gas models, the EPA created MPGe which stands for “miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent.
Simply put, MPGe is the distance an EV can travel on 33.7 kWh of electricity, which is the energy equivalent of one gallon of gas. So, KONA Electric has a 120 Combined MPGe while our gas-powered KONA has 32 MPG Combined.* Based on a cost of $4.00 per gallon for a gas and $.25 per KwH of electricity, traveling 100 miles would cost $12.00 in gas for the KONA and just $7.00 for the KONA Electric.
You can also use MPGe to compare different types of electrified vehicles. For instance, NEXO Fuel Cell has 61 Combined MPGe while TUCSON Plug-in Hybrid has 80 Combined MPGe.
The average EV battery stores less energy compared to gas tanks, so electric cars typically have lower total range compared to gas ones. While this means you’ll be recharging an electric vehicle more often, you’ll still be paying less overall due to electricity costing much less than gasoline.
The range of electric and gas vehicles are both negatively impacted by cold weather, aggressive driving, cargo weight, and passengers. Air conditioning can also lower a hybrid’s driving range.
Gas powertrains get their best MPG on the highway, but electric vehicles get better range in the city, thanks to regenerative braking.
Less than 40% of the energy produced by traditional gas engines actually power the vehicle—the rest is wasted as heat. Electric powertrains also lose some energy as heat via charging and the battery cooling system, but they’re still up to 90% efficient.
Since our NEXO Fuel Cell vehicle is powered by an electric motor that runs exclusively on hydrogen, refueling at a hydrogen station takes just 5 minutes and is similar to pumping gas.
When it comes to charging, regenerative braking can help extend the range of all our electrified vehicles. When you coast or brake, the 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.
Set to higher levels of regenerative braking, you get more energy capture when decelerating. On IONIQ 5 you can use the i-Pedal function which activates the brakes when you take your foot off the accelerator, slowing to a complete stop.
When you set to the lower levels of regenerative braking, you capture less energy but get longer, smoother coasting when you take your foot off the accelerator pedal.
Activate the Smart Regeneration System, and it automatically adjusts the regenerative braking level according to the speed and distance of the vehicle in front of you.
Make your house as electrified as your electric vehicle. With Hyundai Home, you’ll have the power to take charge of your electricity with solar panels, energy storage systems and a 240-volt (Level 2) charger.
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.
There are a lot of reasons why our lineup evolved to have a wide array of electrified vehicles. They’re electrifying when it comes to next-level technology and driving fun. And they embody our belief in a more sustainable future. Which is why in 2040, our goal is that every Hyundai sold in major global markets will be an electrified vehicle, with the aim of our company becoming 100% carbon neutral by 2045. And we’re making your electric journey smarter and easier with complimentary charging for our electric vehicles, home energy solutions, and a worry-free battery warranty.
At Hyundai, we believe in a better tomorrow, and we believe in doing everything we can to make that tomorrow a reality. That’s why we’re investing billions of dollars in electric and alternative fuel vehicles, so we can help build a greener and more accessible world for our children.

The idea of solar energy is still a new and complex space. Consumers spend hours researching what products to use, and which ones are safe and compatible for their needs. Hyundai Home simplifies this process. Through a “one-stop-shop” marketplace website, Hyundai and its partner Electrum have done all the legwork, so you can easily:
Purchasing through Hyundai Home helps streamline your decision process and experience, both pre-and post-sale.
With Hyundai Home, you can expect an outstanding customer experience that combines Hyundai’s leadership in customer care with class-leading partners in energy and electrification. Launching Hyundai Home in collaboration with these industry experts is the perfect way to introduce you to a more streamlined way to access solar and EV charging solutions, because you’re free to pick and choose which components are right for you from a selection of different manufacturers.
Hyundai Home will also provide a personalized purchase process and consistent touchpoints throughout your EV journey, making your transition to solar power, home electrification, and living sustainably as seamless as possible.
Yes! The Hyundai Home energy ecosystem has the flexibility to generate as much clean, sustainable energy as you need. In fact, many customers can substantially impact their energy usage, or even offset it completely. The only real limitation is the roof space you have available for solar panels.
Once you’re up and running, every device and appliance in your home–including your EV charger–will utilize power from the energy grid that’s supplemented by the clean, renewable energy generated by your solar panels. And whenever you generate more solar power than you consume, the excess can be stored in energy storage units for later use.
Solar panels, energy storage systems and the ChargePoint® Home Flex EV charger are now available in select markets; please visit HyundaiHomeMarketplace.com for more information.
Partnering enables Hyundai to offer end-to-end components and services right out of the gate–all through the one-stop Hyundai Home Marketplace website. By purchasing solar panels, microinverters and other energy solutions from the same marketplace, you can be assured that all of your components will work together, and will be backed by strong product and installation warranties from reputable companies.
At launch, Hyundai Home will offer the ChargePoint® Home Flex EV charger, a 240-volt, Level 2 in-home charging solution that’s highly configurable and allows you to set the charging speeds and amperage that’s right for your needs and your home’s electrical panel.
Since Hyundai does not manufacture an in-home EV charger, we chose to work with ChargePoint® to ensure that our customers have easy access to one of the most highly-rated home charging systems available.
Because every home is unique, components are priced based on your individual needs and requirements. EV wall chargers will be competitively priced, while solar power systems and energy storage units are priced by the manufacturer, with varying installation costs. The goal is to offer transparency and price consistency, which will make it easy for you to understand and choose whether you want to purchase one or more components from Hyundai Home.
At launch, no. However, Hyundai is still studying different financial options to offer you the best products and energy solutions.
This could be possible. However, your specific situation must be examined on an individual basis by a home energy consultant and installation professional, as there are many factors at play (age of panels, panels’ energy production, differing technology, etc.). In addition, new components may not be compatible with an existing solar panel system, so new inspections and permits will be needed to ensure everything is up to code and functioning properly.
Since each system is customized for your specific needs, installation costs will vary. Variables that may affect these costs can include things such as where the charger will be installed relative to the home’s electrical panel, condition of the home’s wiring, and similar considerations. Due to this variability, installation costs are separate from and in addition to component pricing.
There may be opportunities for cost savings when it comes to bundling components; however, Hyundai cannot share hard figures at this time.
All systems come with a minimum one-year production and performance guarantee (except where excluded by law), provided by the electrician contracted to install your system. Certain markets offer extended installation warranties. Additional information regarding product and installation warranties can be found at the Hyundai Home Marketplace.
At this time, there is no buy-back policy available once components are installed.
Hyundai encourages interested customers to always check with their Homeowners’ Associations (HOAs), landlords, and/or building managers on permissibility of installing EV wall chargers and solar components in their residences. Please note that Hyundai Home products are only available for residential use.
At this time, Hyundai is working on connecting the MyHyundai app with related control systems for solar and EV charging. Stay tuned for more information.
