Which EV charging cable should I get for my Hyundai?

Unsure which charging cable is right for your EV Hyundai? No sweat – EV Wired is here to walk you through your choices.

Like the majority of current and new electric vehicles, the majority of the Hyundai range has a CCS Type 2 charge port on the vehicle and, as such, requires a (16A or 32A) Type 2 to Type 2 charge cable. The exceptions are the Sonata and i10 models which use a Type 1 to Type 2 charge cable.

The seven-pin Type 2 plug design is the European standard and this connector type and can be used at practically all modern (non-Tesla) public charge points within the UK. Note that the two larger pins at the bottom of your vehicle’s charge port are for using DC rapid charging cables that are tethered to some charge points – feel free to take advantage of DC rapid charging when the opportunity presents itself!

Whether using a 16A or 32A charger cable, your vehicle will automatically identify and charge at the correct rate of the charging station. As such, you can use the same EV Wired 32A cable at both 16A and 32A charge points. Likewise, our 16A cables are suitable for use at both 16A and 32A charge points.

As most homes have a single-phase electricity supply, only a single-phase 32A cable is required for home charging (unless you have a 3-phase supply). We recommend, however, purchasing a 32A 3-phase charger cable as a great option to have to hand on the road. This allows for quicker charging at public 3-phase charge points and, as 3-phase charging becomes increasingly common, is more future-proof.
