The Electrify America charging network has more than 2,400 ultra-fast chargers across the US with conveniently located stations along major routes and near shopping malls, banking and dining places, etc. Each charging station has between three and ten individual DC fast chargers and thus can support multiple vehicles charging at one time. The chargers provide speeds of up to 150kW and 350kW for eligible vehicles, helping reduce the amount of time spent charging.

Hyundai says that both Kona and Ioniq's higher power charging capabilities are in sync with Electrify America's DC fast chargers and thus reduce the time taken to fully charge the vehicles. "Our Kona and Ioniq EV owners are getting additional peace of mind when heading out on longer trips with prepaid access to Electrify America’s national fast-charging network," says Olabisi Boyle, vice president, Product Planning and Mobility Strategy, Hyundai Motor North America.
