"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."

Michael O’Brien, vice president, Product, Corporate and Digital Planning, Hyundai Motor America said:

“We’re very excited about taking this important next step in Hyundai’s evolving leadership in eco-focused mobility. 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.”
