FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 21, 2017 – Today, Hyundai Motor America officially opened its “Charging Century” of more than 100 convenient, level-two charging locations to its employee work force. These innovative and efficient new chargers allow Hyundai’s employees driving Ioniq Electric, Plug-in Hybrid and Sonata Plug-in Hybrid vehicles to conveniently recharge their vehicles at Hyundai Motor America’s new gold LEED-certified modern building, minimizing local fossil-fuel-based emissions during their weekly commutes. Hyundai refers to its headquarters as “The Headquarters of Better” in keeping with the overall direction for the innovative automotive brand.
“We’re very excited about taking this important next step in Hyundai’s evolving leadership in eco-focused mobility,” said Michael O’Brien, vice president, Product, Corporate and Digital Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “By allowing hundreds of our employees the opportunity to conveniently plug-in daily at work, our new headquarters has become a blueprint for zero-emissions corporate commuting throughout the nation.”
By providing convenient charging at work via a 113-charger Chargepoint® network, many employees with a sub-25-mile commuting distance will be able to fully charge both at work and home during the week, minimizing fossil-fuel-based emissions and gas station visits on their daily commutes. The Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid has an estimated all-electric range of 27 miles and the Sonata Plug-in Hybrid has an all-electric range of 27 miles, allowing for emissions-free commuting to and from work. The Ioniq Electric has an even greater range of 124 miles and is the most efficient electric vehicle in the U.S. market, with 136 MPGe.
Hyundai has established itself as an eco-focused vehicle leader by offering a full spectrum of eco offerings including: Ioniq Electric, Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid vehicles, Sonata Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid vehicles and the Tucson Fuel Cell electric vehicle.
