IONIQ 5 DC Fast Charging: 150 kW vs. 350 kW Session Comparison

From Plug and Play EV.

This video compares fast charging sessions in a Hyundai IONIQ 5 on 150kW and 350kW charging stations… how much longer will HI5 drivers wait when they only have a 150kW unit available?

Our sessions comparing the two occurred quite far apart, in March (350kW) and now June (150kW), but both in EV-friendly temperatures around 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit (21-27 degrees Celsius). Hyundai’s claim of 10-80% pretty much held up in our first session — watch that one here: — but the 350kW option isn’t always open or available.

So, is it really a disaster if a slower-charging EV is taking up that most powerful charge stall as you pull in this summer? Check out our results and see if you can cut them some slack!
