Hyundai introduced a new service for mobile charging electric carsDecember 4, 2019
A new service called V2V (Vehicle to Vehicle) is designed to increase the popularity of electric cars. Now the owner of an electric car can charge it anywhere.
At the beginning of 2019, Hyundai decided to promote its own electric cars in the Indian market. Since then, 302 orders have been received for the Kona crossover with an electric motor. Moreover, 231 copies have already been delivered to their owners. Nevertheless, the company expects to increase demand for its own electric cars, although the infrastructure for them in India is very weak.
To do this, the local unit came up with a new V2V service. Now the company can come to your electric car and charge it. For this, another electric car is used, from which charging takes place.
In addition, Hyundai installed 7.2 kW stationary charging stations in 15 dealerships in 11 cities in India. This allows you to charge Hyundai Kona Electric in 6-8 hours. While from the outlet, charging takes about 19 hours.
An added bonus for local customers is the free home charging station.
Meanwhile, the electric Hyundai Lafesta EV is officially unveiled in China. Sales will begin early next year.
