Hyundai’s first electric car on sale

Hyundai’s first electric vehicle, the Ioniq, will hit showrooms soon. The car can travel 206 km in the city on a single charge and up to 173 km on highways.

Hyundai delivered the first Ionic EV to a local customer on July 5 and held a test-drive event last week.

The Ioniq costs W40-43 million, but the price tag drops to between W20 million to W25 million thanks to government subsidies for green cars (US$1=W1,134).

A full charge costs W8,700 and takes four hours and 25 minutes, while a rapid charge takes only 23 minutes.

Hyundai said it will introduce mobile recharging stations across the country in the second half of this year. EV mechanics will be stationed at Hyundai’s 23 directly run after-service centers and 80 affiliated garages.
