What is eco-friendlier, an electric or a hybrid vehicle? Most people would say an electric vehicle, because there is no reliance on fossil fuels. The 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric uses a plug-in charger to fuel up, a similar process to how you charge your smart phone. Most people with electric vehicles opt to get a charger installed at home and charge their vehicles overnight. For the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric, this can be done with a fast charge with 480 V and finishes up in less than an hour. On a 120 V charger, the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric will take 24 hours to get a complete charge, but it is likely that you won’t need the complete charge very often, which provides up to a 200 km driving range.
The 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, on the other hand, does not plug-in to charge, but self-charges a little as you drive. You will still have to do the traditional gas-station refueling, but it will not use as much fuel as your non-hybrid vehicle does. Come into Kelowna Hyundai to view our inventory and learn more.
