You’ve got charging questions. We’ve got answers.
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.
At home or on the go.
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 centers¾check 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.See charging stations map

What’s MPGe, exactly?
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.

What affects range
Fuel cell charging
Stopping power. Literally.
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.
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.

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.
