How long has Hyundai been producing EVs?
Hyundai began operating as a car manufacturer in 1967, however it wasn’t until 2010 that they turned their attention to electric vehicles.
At the beginning of the decade, Hyundai launched BlueOn, its first production electric car. Equipped with a 16.4 kWh lithium polymer battery pack with a six-hour charging time, the BlueOn was only sold in South Korea.
In 2016, Hyundai released the IONIQ, the world’s first car with three electrified powertrains – hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full electric. This was closely followed by the launch of the Kona Electric, the first all-electric subcompact SUV in Europe.
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
