Hyundai owners can purchase AeroVironment home chargers and installation together with their vehicles. AeroVironment-certified electricians perform on-site installation and services.

“Having your own charging station right in your garage or driveway gives drivers a special kind of freedom. It makes charging a car as easy as charging a cell phone,” said AeroVironment Senior VP Ken Karklin. “AeroVironment’s portfolio of EV charging solutions gives the Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid and other EVs the benefits and convenience of faster charging and cleaner driving at home and on the road.”
