Electric Vehicle FAQ
What kind of electrified vehicle suits me best?
When you’re considering purchasing a vehicle with some form of electrified powertrain, there are a few decisions that you will need to think about before taking the leap.
You need to be sure that the vehicle you purchase matches to your lifestyle and your needs.
The first decision that you’ll need to make is whether to buy a Hybrid (HEV), Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) or to go full electric and buy a Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV). When considering this, think about your driving habits and lifestyle. Do you live in the city and only use your car for shorter trips to work and around town? Do you have access to charging stations at work or at home? If you answer yes to either of these questions, then you could consider going all in and getting yourself a BEV. For the best of both worlds, a PHEV can provide electric-only power for short commutes, with the flexibility of having a conventional petrol or diesel engine for longer distance driving. If you live in a rural area or simply want to use electric power to go farther on a litre of petrol, then a Hybrid might be the right choice.
The Hyundai IONIQ is available with three different electrified powertrains (HEV, PHEV and BEV) – and if you’re looking for an SUV you can choose from the KONA Electric or KONA Hybrid. It’s never been easier to find the perfect electrified vehicle– depending on your personal preference and driving style, how far you drive and if you have charging possibilities at home or work.
