Battery charger to reach 60% in 3 minutes

Re: Will Hyundai's eco-friendly Ioniq woo hearts away from Prius?

So we have "Tesla Killers" and "Prius Fighters" I found an article from Hyundai that states the Ioniq was never meant to be a Prius Fighter The reasoning behind this strategy is to try to attract buyers to the Ioniq who might otherwise never consider a hybrid. Hyundai says the I...
