Hyundai America Partnering With AeroVironment To Offer EV Charging Stations For 2016 Sonata PHEV

As part of the support push for the all-new 2016 Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid, Hyundai Motor America has partnered with AeroVironment in order to give buyers the option of bringing home an electric vehicle charging station as well, according to recent reports.

The partnership means that Hyundai is now the 7th plug-in electric vehicle (EV) auto manufacturer to partner with AeroVironment for such an approach.

”Having your own charging station right in your garage or driveway gives Hybrid and EV drivers a special kind of freedom. It makes charging a car as easy as charging a cell phone,” stated Ken Karklin, AeroVironment senior vice president and general manager of its Efficient Energy Systems business segment. “AeroVironment’s portfolio of EV charging solutions gives the Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid and other EVs the benefits and convenience of faster charging and cleaner driving at home and on the road.”

Here’s some background on the new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) Sonata and the charging offering from AeroVironment:

The 2016 Sonata Plug-in Hybrid comes with a high-capacity lithium-polymer hybrid battery system that delivers an all-electric range of 27 miles before switching to hybrid mode. The Sonata Plug-in Hybrid also comes with a lifetime hybrid battery warranty.

The AeroVironment 240-volt TurboCord and the EVSE-RS charging station can charge the Sonata Plug-in Hybrid in less than three hours versus the approximate nine hours needed using a standard 120-volt charging cable. AeroVironment’s UL-listed products can be installed indoors or outdoors, making it easy to locate the station in the most convenient location.
