Hyundai has launched a new service it says will give its EV and PHEV drivers access to more than 15,000 public chargers in the UK.
Charge MyHyundai offers access to chargers from a range of networks through a single platform, using either a phone app or an RFID card, with a flexible pay-as-you-go tariff.
The app, compatible with iOS and Android devices, also features intelligent route planning and real-time price information, and can be used in conjunction with Hyundai's Bluelink connected car services.
Hyundai Motor UK managing director Ashley Andrew said: "We're excited to introduce Charge MyHyundai to the UK for Hyundai electric vehicle customers as we know that public charging is one of the biggest perceived barriers for EV ownership.
"Charge MyHyundai provides a comprehensive service where customers can easily locate and access public chargers, with a simplified payment solution giving EV and PHEV owners peace of mind.
"You'll see that as we continue to launch our next generation of electric cars, like the forthcoming Ioniq 5, Charge MyHyundai will be integrated into the car's head unit making it even more convenient and seamless."
