Warranty on battery capacity of the ioniq EV

Sun Jan 01, 2017 7:02 pm

Just wondering whether anyone of you has figured out how the 8 years warranty on the battery of the ioniq EV works? I asked my dealer but he said something like if after some time I can drive only 50 km on one charge instead of 180, iT is obvious that they will replace the battery for free. Looks like he didn't know himself either. :cry:

My dealer also did not know. It seems there is no written criterion for maximal degradation before you can get it replaced. So, perhaps officially it will only cover battery disfunctioning. Manufacturers differ in this. Some specify a guaranteed capacity, often set at 70%, but others don't.
But to avoid bad PR I assume Hyundai will also replace when, for example, only 60% capacity is left.

It probably depends on WHERE you bought your Ioniq (country or state/province).
