Battery cooling?

Fri May 12, 2017 11:36 pm

I know the Ioniq had a decent battery warranty, but I can't find any information on the cooling system.

Does the Ioniq Electric have a cooling system? Or is it like the e-Golf with nothing to protect the battery from overheating during charging?

This isn't specific to the Ioniq but EVs in general:

That’s because Level 1 and Level 2 “charging stations” aren’t really chargers.

The chargers are built into the car. The thing most of us call a charger is actually known as electric vehicle supply equipment, or EVSE.

It’s the cord-set that came in the trunk, or the free-standing or wall-mounted “station” you’re used to seeing PEVS hooked up to. It is the device that enables the car’s charger to communicate with the the electrical supply to control the flow of current and keep the battery pack from overheating. It is also a safety device that can shut things down if there’s an electrical short or other problem, and it anchors and stores the charging cord.

So it sounds like overheating is not an issue, as the flow of current is controlled.
