The Hyundai Ioniq is one of the most advanced, affordable all-electric sedans on the road today. As with all EVs, one of the top questions relates to the longevity of the vehicle’s battery. Here we will take a look at how long the typical battery lasts on a Hyundai Ioniq from Danbury Hyundai. Read on to learn more!

Batteries Designed With a 20-Year Lifetime

Under ideal conditions, all batteries on EV Hyundai models are designed to last for 20 years. However, the actual lifetime of the battery will vary due to a number of factors, including the usage rate, weather, and driving habits. Many Ioniq owners have reported that their vehicle’s batteries have continued to work normally after about eight years and 100,000 miles.

Hyundai Lifetime Battery Warranty

Because the health of a battery on an EV is an important issue, Hyundai gives all first owners of the Ioniq EV a lifetime warranty. If the battery fails, then Hyundai will replace the battery free of charge. This should allow the owner of the Ioniq to enjoy their vehicle without having to worry about the cost of replacing a new battery in Danbury.

What Affects The Longevity of the Ioniq’s Battery?

While the Ioniq’s battery enjoys a lifetime coverage, you will still want to get the most out of the original battery. Here are Hyundai’s top five tips to extend the life of the Ioniq’s battery.

Avoid Discharging the Battery at Low Levels: Try to recharge the battery when it is at about 25% capacity. That will avoid straining the battery when it has a depleted amount of charge.

Charge More Frequently: Ideally, you will want to charge the vehicle every day when you come home.

Avoid Extended Periods of Heavy Acceleration: Heavy acceleration, for extended periods of time, can strain the battery.

Park in Shade: If parking for extended periods of time, then park in the shade. This will avoid exposing the battery to excessive heat.

Limit The Max Charging Level to 80% to 90%: You will want to avoid maxing out the charge on the battery.
