Hyundai Motor UK has launched Charge myHyundai – an integrated public charging service offering its electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle customers access to the largest charging network in the UK.
Charge myHyundai gives Hyundai drivers access to over 15,000 charge points across the UK and they will be able to use charge points from most of the main operators via a single platform, with a pay-as-you-go tariff and no subscription fees to make the use of public charging simpler. The system’s payment is via an app or single radio-frequency identification (RFID) card.
Ashley Andrew, Hyundai Motor UK’s managing director, commented: “We’re excited to introduce Charge myHyundai to the UK for Hyundai electric vehicle customers as we know that public charging is one of the biggest perceived barriers for EV ownership. Charge myHyundai provides a comprehensive service where customers can easily locate and access public chargers, with a simplified payment solution.”
Charge myHyundai can also be used in conjunction with Hyundai’s Bluelink Connected Car Services. Bluelink connects drivers to their cars through their smartphones via the Bluelink app, which for full-electric vehicle owners includes the ability to charge vehicles remotely, check battery status, set a charging schedule, and switch on the car’s climate control before setting off on a trip to heat or cool the interior.
