Our range of Hyundai electric cars
How long has Hyundai been producing EVs?
Hyundai has actually been developing electric cars since the 1990s. Its first all-electric car was the Sonata Electric Vehicle, a prototype of which was produced in 1991. However, it wasn’t until 2010, with the BlueOn, that the technology had developed to a point where it was ready for the consumer market.
A few years later in 2013, Hyundai developed the first ever mass-produced hydrogen fuel cell car. This meant charging was fast and range was vastly improved, allowing Hyundai to use the technology in its EV development. Now, Hyundai has pledged to sell only all-electric vehicles in Europe by the year 2035.
Why driving an EV is great
There are plenty of reasons why driving an electric car is great, and benefits not only you as the driver, but also the environment.
While Hyundai produces great petrol and diesel cars, the benefits of an EV mean they’re the perfect choice for drivers looking to make the switch to electric:
- There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, which means maintaining them is cheaper and there’s less that can potentially go wrong
- Charging an EV is quick and simple – by using a rapid charge point, you can charge your EV’s battery to 80% in as little as 20 minutes
- EVs are far kinder to the environment, and by using green energy to charge the battery they can be completely carbon neutral after manufacture
- Compared to petrol and diesel, the cost of charging an EV is considerably cheaper than a tank of fuel
