Hyundai Ioniq - a quick charging guide for your EV

Along with it's sister EV the Hyundai Kona, the Ioniq has been making some serious headway into the Australian and New Zealand EV market.

If you live near a Hyundai Blue Drive dealer, you may have been lucky enough to take one of these babies out for a spin...or you may be the proud owner of an Ioniq right now. If so, you've chosen a fantastic EV that we reckon will be a staple vehicle for many families in years to come.

WIth a 64kW battery and incredible efficiency, the Ioniq is in such demand that Hyundai are having problems keeping up deliveries. The Ioniq's great performance, ample cabin and boot space, 5 doors and DC fast charging as standard, it really is set up as the EV of the future.


Powered by a 150-kilowatt AC synchronous motor functioning on energy stored in a lithium-ion battery pack, the Ioniq has 

approximately 230km of range for the average EV driver.

Hyundai Ioniq charging info - how do I charge up?

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. Please note that Hyundai only supplies a slow portable charger with the car, which is fine for charging up overnight, but not so great for top ups in between trips.


As with many of other EVs, our team highly recommends the British-made Myenergi Zappi as the best domestic wall charger to go with the Ioniq.


Plug Standard: Type 2 / Mennekes
Maximum AC charge rate: 32amp or 7kW

Time to fully recharge at the typical 32amp single phase or 7kW which takes around 9 hours

If you have solar panels at home or work, the Myenergi Zappi will ensure you're always using your self-generated solar power when your Ioniq is plugged in. This eco-aware, super smart system hooks into your solar and distributes power where it's most needed at any given moment; pop the kettle on and the Zappi will direct power there. Once the kettle clicks off, the Zappi will send it back to your EV. Very clever!

What do our EV customers say about us?

Being relatively new to the EV industry, and having just bought a new Hyundai Ioniq Electric, I had a lot of queries about all of the different accessories I might need to get the most out of the new car. Russ Shepherd from EVolution personally answered every one of my many questions no matter how silly I thought some of them were. We ended up going with the type 2 charging cable, type 1 to 2 adapter cable, and a Zappi car charger. My wife and I have now had the opportunity to test all three and couldn’t be happier. Thanks EVolution!!!
