Hyundai drivers no longer need charging pass

June 16, 2023

Plug & Charge

With the Plug & Charge system, Hyundai drivers can now charge their cars more easily. The confirmation required to start the charging session now takes place automatically and directly between the car and the charging point, without requiring a charging card or a special app on the smartphone.

Ioniq 6

Currently, the Ioniq 6 is the first Hyundai electric car to support the Plug & Charge system. In the future, Plug & Charge will also be available for other Hyundai models, such as the Ioniq 5 and the new Kona Electric. With Plug & Charge, it is not only easy to charge, but also easy to pay. No more manual authentication is needed with an app or charging card.


Not only the car, but also the charging station must be suitable to use Plug & Charge. Hyundai works closely with Ionity and Digital Charging Solutions, two key players in the field of (digital) charging solutions, among others. The Charge myHyundai app allows Hyundai electric drivers to search for charging stations, apply various filtering options (such as plug type, charging speed, access type) and receive real-time updates on charging rates and charging station availability.
