Hyundai is making a move to encourage people to buy its electric vehicles. The automaker says it will offer free home chargers to owners who buy or lease select EVs. They'll receive a complimentary ChargePoint Home Flex Level 2 charger and up to $600 off installation using the Hyundai Home Marketplace.
The new offer applies to leasing or buying the following models through Hyundai Finance:
- 2023/2024 IONIQ 5
- 2023/2024 IONIQ 6
- 2023 Kona Electric
The offer kicked off on Sept 21st, and runs through October 31, 2023. Hyundai says customers who buy or lease one of the select EVs will have 90 days from the purchase or lease date to schedule the installation of the complimentary home charger. An installation credit of up to $600 will also be included, bringing the total value to more than $1,100. Customers will need a coupon code that will be provided by Hyundai Motor Finance. After they register on the Marketplace with their code, Hyundai says they'll be connected with an Energy Advisor at Electrum via Hyundai Home to get the process started. Advisors can help with finding a trusted installer and pulling any permits required by the customer's city or state.
"At Hyundai, we are focused on offering a wide range of high-quality EVs for our customers to choose from, but we know that the charging infrastructure and the process of preparing their homes is at the forefront of the minds of many EV-curious buyers," said José Muñoz, president and global COO of Hyundai Motor Company and president and CEO of Hyundai Motor North America. "With this offer, we're making it easier for everyone to go electric by providing our EV customers with an expert Energy Advisor who can personally walk them through the process of outfitting their homes with the proper charging, energy storage and collection equipment using our Hyundai Home Marketplace."
Hyundai's partnered with Electrum Energy Advisors on its Home Marketplace website. The automaker calls it a "one-stop shop" for its EV customers' home electrification needs. There, customers can arrange for the delivery and installation of their complimentary home EV charger, as well as buy solar panels and home energy storage systems. Hyundai says its Home Marketplace can help customers live more sustainable lives, lower their energy bills, and make their homes more resilient with solar panels, energy storage systems, and electric vehicle chargers.
