Electric vehicles have come a long way over the last decade, and Hyundai continues to lead the way in advancing electric vehicles. What began as an option for drivers looking to reduce their carbon imprint has since grown into a segment that offers fun-to-drive cars that deliver exceptional economy through an all-electric operation.
Tens of thousands of charging stations have sprung up around the United States to support this booming market of the auto industry. In addition, Hyundai has put the total weight of their research and development over the last decade to create electric vehicles with power, performance, and all the comfortable amenities you crave in a car.
So, suppose you want to lower your carbon footprint and elevate your McKinney, Texas, commute. In that case, Huffines Hyundai McKinney can help with a Hyundai electric vehicle that can do it all and then some. Let’s look at the reasons why a Hyundai electric vehicle might be the right choice for you.
More Comfortable and Spacious Cabins

Going from a large gasoline engine paired with a six, eight, or ten-speed automatic transmission to a much smaller electric motor and a single-speed gearbox eliminates the powertrain tunnel beneath the vehicle. That extra space allows Hyundai to lower the cabin floor resulting in a much larger cabin before raising the roof line.
In the Hyundai IONIQ 5, the roof line matches the height of other SUVs in its class. As a result, when you slip into the IONIQ 5 cabin, you get more head and legroom than traditional SUVs. The IONIQ Electric Hatchback benefits from the lowered floor, in the same manner, offering the additional leg and headroom without adding bulky size to the vehicle’s height.
Both vehicles offer premium leatherette upholstery with a sophisticated style. Hyundai also uses bio-friendly materials throughout its cabins, turning recycled material into comfortable and modern furnishings.
Hyundai believes that a technologically advanced EV should come with in-vehicle technology to match. That’s why they created the voice recognition software that allows you to operate vehicle systems with simple, intuitive voice commands. With this dynamic technology, you can roll down the window, pop the trunk, heat your seats, and more.
The IONIQ 5 uses this software exclusively, while the IONIQ Electric Hatchback uses Bluetooth technology to achieve similar results. In addition, both vehicles feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability that lets you sync your cellphones with your infotainment center. These platforms allow you to make calls, access your favorite apps, and get navigation information hands-free.
Hyundai installed a futuristic dashboard that combines the driver information interface and the infotainment touchscreen into one rotating panel in the IONIQ 5. The IONIQ Electric Hatchback comes with a 10.25-inch floating touchscreen that powers the infotainment system.
The Power of Electricity
Hyundai makes excellent use of the electric power in the IONIQ 5 and IONIQ Electric Hatchback. Now, you get the control from an available all-wheel-drive system with the IONIQ 5. AWD adds a second electric motor, one for each axle, to deliver smooth power and control.
The IONIQ 5 features an ultra-fast charging capability that delivers 60 miles of range in only five minutes. The system can charge from 10% up to 80% in 18 minutes. On a full charge, the IONIQ 5 has a driving range of up to 300 miles. In addition, you get regenerative braking that returns energy to the battery and acts as a power source to operate laptops, televisions, and even charge your e-bike with the two-way onboard charger. A wireless charging pad keeps your cellphone charged.
The Hyundai charging system of the IONIQ Electric Hatchback delivers an 80% charge in 54 minutes at any Electrify America charging station. With a 220V/240V home charging outlet installed, you can fully charge your IONIQ Electric Hatchback in six hours.
When you purchase an IONIQ 5, you get two years of complimentary unlimited 30-minute charging sessions at any Electrify America charging station. These stations utilize ultra-fast DC chargers to supply power to American EV drivers. With the purchase of a 2021 IONIQ Electric Hatchback, you get 250 kWh of free charging. That equals about 1,000 miles of driving range completely free.

You’ll receive alerts to possible hazards, and in some cases, the systems will provide emergency braking and steering correction.
You’ll benefit from the protection and convenience of forward collision avoidance assist, smart cruise control, lane keeping assist, and remote smart parking in either vehicle. The IONIQ Electric Hatchback also comes standard with blind-spot collision warning and rear cross-traffic collision warning systems. You can add these two systems as an option on the IONIQ 5.
The IONIQ 5 comes with the Highway Driving Assist (HDA-2) system. This intelligent system works with GPS, highway driving data, smart cruise control, and lane following assist in helping you drive. The system keeps you centered in your lane. In addition, it can change lanes for you, keep you at a safe distance to the car ahead, and match your IONIQ 5’s speed to the posted speed limit.
Taking in the past and present with an eye to the future, the IONIQ 5 boasts clean, sharp lines that give it an athletic stance. Rolling on 20-inch alloy wheels and featuring pixel-inspired lighting, a clamshell hood, and flush door handles, the IONIQ 5 looks the part of a futuristic SUV.
Signature LED headlights, and a futuristic patterned grille gives the IONIQ Electric Hatchback an aggressive stare. Sharp lines and a bold rear fascia provide athletic appeal as it rolls by on stylish 16-inch Eco-spoke wheels.
