Featuring vehicle-to-load (V2L) technology that allows bi-directional charging, Hyundai’s new electric car powers football launcher machines for Chelsea’s Premier League players. The V2L function, which turns the car into a ‘charger on wheels’, can be used for any electric device.
The machines were then plugged into the IONIQ 5, giving the Premier League stars a tricky time as the balls were hurled towards them at high speeds.
The V2L function, which turns the car into a ‘charger on wheels’, can be used for any electric device – whether it’s scooters, electric bicycles or camping equipment.
With a 350-kW charger, IONIQ 5 can charge from 10 per cent to 80 per cent in 18 minutes. It takes around five minutes to get 100km (62 miles) of range.
This is the first time an IONIQ 5, which was unveiled this week, has been on British soil ahead of its arrival in dealerships later this year.
The family car, which has a range of up to 300 miles between charges, is going on sale as demand for electric cars continues to grow.
Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders revealed sales of pure electric vehicles were up by 54.4 per cent in January despite showrooms being closed.
