Hyundai EV, with 110-mile range and 100 kW charging, to arrive in the US this year

Hyundai IONIQ Electric

[Updated: 3/28/16 to include fast charging information.] 

The Hyundai Ioniq, the first vehicle from a major automaker to be offered in three electrified versions, is on its way. The Ioniq Electric will begin deliveries in South Korea in June, and is expected to arrive on American shores later this year, after the Ioniq Hybrid.

The Ioniq Electric is expected to achieve a range of 110 miles in US testing, Hyundai Engineer Kim Choong told Automotive News. It has a 28 kWh LG Chem battery pack, similar to that used in the low-volume Kia Soul EV, which is rated at 93 miles. Hyundai also announced that the Ioniq Electric will use the SAE Combo fast charging standard at power levels up to 100 kW, so “charging the Ioniq battery up to 80 percent only takes about 20 minutes.”

The new EV also features paddle shifters that adjust the resistance of the regenerative braking, and a navigation system with an “eco-routing” algorithm that chooses the most energy-efficient route.

Why did Kia decide to use CHAdeMO DC Fast Charging on the new Kia Soul EV?
