Hyundai Turns To AeroVironment To Supply Dealerships With Charging Stations
Hyundai has selected AeroVironment as its preferred charging station provider for dealerships in the U.S. For AeroVironment, Hyundai is the seventh carmaker to select the company to provide chargers.
The Korean company is just now launching sales of 2016 Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid, which arrived late in November.
AeroVironment home charging stations will naturally also be available to order by Hyundai customers when purchasing their vehicles.
“The AeroVironment 240-volt TurboCord and the EVSE-RS charging station can charge the Sonata Plug-in Hybrid in less than three hours versus the approximate nine hours needed using a standard 120-volt charging cable. AeroVironment’s UL-listed products can be installed indoors or outdoors, making it easy to locate the station in the most convenient location.”
“Hyundai owners can purchase AeroVironment home chargers and installation when purchasing their vehicles at the Hyundai dealership. AeroVironment-certified, licensed electricians, who are also specially qualified to support EV drivers, perform on-site installation and services.”
Ken Karklin, AeroVironment senior vice president and general manager of its Efficient Energy Systems business segment said:
“Having your own charging station right in your garage or driveway gives Hybrid and EV drivers a special kind of freedom. It makes charging a car as easy as charging a cell phone. AeroVironment’s portfolio of EV charging solutions gives the Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid and other EVs the benefits and convenience of faster charging and cleaner driving at home and on the road.”
