A brief overview of the Electrify America Select Charging Program as it pertains to the Kona EV and Ioniq EV

The cost of operating a Hyundai EV is remarkably low compared to a gas vehicle.  Currently, Electrify America is offering a new program for Hyundai owners to further reduce charging costs, and make it more convenient to access charging stations.

What is Electrify America?

Electrify America is building a vast charger network throughout the United States.  Currently, they have 410 stations across 42 states and 17 metropolitan areas, and the network is constantly growing. By the end of 2021, they expect to have approximately 800 charging stations, for a total of 3,500 chargers in 45 states and 29 metropolitan areas.  All stations will include the CCS (Combined Charging System) chargers used by Hyundai electric vehicles.

Each Electrify America, CCS charger offers Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 ranges of charging speed.  The higher the tier, the higher charge speed, and the higher charging cost per minute.  The maximum charging speed is dependent on the vehicle.  The maximum charging speeds of both the Kona EV and Ioniq EV fall within the Tier 2 range, and will charge at Tier2 automatically. Tier 2 charging normally costs $0.69/minute, plus a $1.00 session fee.
