Introduced to NZ in 2017 and Australia in 2018, this was the first sub $50k mainstream and full sized electric car to be able to crack the 200km mark. Hyundai therefore marketed it as a primary (rather than a second) car for many customers. With its 28kwh battery and incredible efficiency, the Ioniq is very much in demand by the public and corporates and as such, has created a real buzz around it.
With brisk performance, five-doors, five-passenger body shell and DC fast charging as standard, the Ioniq is setup be the only car in a household. Powered by a 66-kilowatt AC synchronous motor functioning on energy stored in a lithium-ion battery pack, the Ioniq boasts approximately 230km real world driving range.
Hyundai Ioniq charging information
The Ioniq is equipped with a single Type 2 Mennekes CCS2 charger port. The Type 2 Mennekes connector is what’s typically used at home and at destination chargers. Note: Hyundai only supplies a slow portable charger with the car. We are currently recommending the Zappi as the best domestic wall charger to go with the Ioniq.
