Hyundai Ioniq electric car changes for 2020 MY
It is true that the Ioniq EV pricing went up (from a year ago), but the model received some significant upgrades for the 2020 model year.
The all-electric Ioniq actually received a mid-cycle facelift which resulted in a range of cosmetic updates and even powertrain improvements.
Listed below are some of the most important changes of the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq EV
- Increase in battery size (from 28 kWh to 38.3 kWh)
- Longer driving range on a single charge (from 124 miles to 170 miles)
- Upgraded on-board charger (from 6.6 kW to 7.2 kW)
- More powerful electric motor with 134 horsepower
One of the most important upgrades of the Hyundai Ioniq EV is hidden from our eyes. That’s the new battery pack, which has increased in size quite significantly.
The previously available 28kWh battery has been replaced with a 38,3 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Because of that, the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq EV range increased from 124 miles (200 km) to no less than 170 miles (274 km).
Hyundai’s compact electric vehicle also received a new electric motor, which packs 134 horsepower and 218 lb-ft (295 Nm) of torque. Compared to the previous unit, the new one boasts 16 horsepower more.
The new Ioniq EV is fitted with a 7.2-kW on-board charger for Type 2 AC charging. Using a 100-kW fast-charging station, the battery pack can be recharged up to 80% in as little as 54 minutes!
