Hyundai is so sure in its electric vehicles that it will allow buyers to test drive them for an extended amount of time before making a purchase.
While Tesla has elevated the performance of electric vehicles to the forefront, price and range remain two of the most significant barriers to widespread adoption of electric vehicles. Furthermore, despite it is not as well-known or understood as AC fast-charging speed, DC fast-charging speed is arguably even more critical.
Hyundai plans to allow users to test drive its electric vehicles for a prolonged period of time before purchasing them in order to demonstrate the value of its products.
Hyundai will release the Ioniq 5 in the near future, and it will most likely be followed by the Ioniq 6 and 7. The company claims that its base versions would have a range of 300 miles and will be built on an 800-volt design. In comparison, the base models of the Tesla Model 3 and Ford Mustang Mach-E do not have a range of more than 300 miles. In fact, although the Model 3 Long Range – which costs $9,000 more than the original Model 3 – has an EPA-rated range of 353 miles, the Mach-E has a maximum range of 305 miles, according to the manufacturer. Tesla and Ford, on the other hand, use 400-volt systems.
