EV Charger Installation for Hyundai Vehicles

Coming soon, Hyundai will offer home EV chargers via their Hyundai Home program. Until then, you have two options to charge your Hyundai vehicle at home.

Level 1 Charging

Your Hyundai EV will come with a portable charger or in-cable control box (ICCB). You can use this cable to plug into any standard 120V outlet. This will charge your vehicle without having to have an electrician install an EV charger. However, you will get the lowest charging speeds at around 5 – 6 miles per hour.

Level 2 Charging

With Level 2 charging, you have the option to charge your car at a higher speed. This can be done with a portable charger (reach out to your local Hyundai dealership to learn how to purchase) or with a wall charger. Depending on your EV type, you can get up to 29 miles per hour charged.

Level 2 charging usually requires the assistance of a professional electrician to install. You can choose to install a NEMA receptacle or a wall charger, like those provided by ChargePoint.

We are happy to provide you an estimate to install an EV charger for whichever Hyundai vehicle you have. Please visit this page to fill out a little bit of information on your home and vehicle.
