Hyundai Publishes Delivery Times of Electric Car

Electric passenger cars, particularly those by Hyundai, are currently in high demand and may have a long wait time for delivery. This is due to a global shortage of components and logistics issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, as well as the growing popularity of electric vehicles. Hyundai, however, is transparent about these wait times and provides updates on its website.

As a brand that began investing in electric vehicles earlier than others, Hyundai has a well-established production network. The company reports that customers currently have access to thousands of stock models of battery-powered, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid vehicles from Hyundai dealerships.

All Hyundai electric vehicles are currently available from authorized dealers, with delivery times varying by model. For example, the delivery time for a hybrid or electric version of the Kona compact SUV is currently six months, and the new Ioniq 5 electric vehicle will have a wait time of eight months. Hyundai also plans to release hybrid and plug-in versions of the Tucson and Santa Fe SUVs within the next six months.

The Ioniq station car, which comes in hybrid, hybrid plug-in, and electric drive versions, can only be purchased from authorized dealers and no longer accepts individual orders. This may indicate that Hyundai is discontinuing the Ioniq model. Starting with the Ioniq 5, the company’s new electric vehicles will utilize the E-GMP platform, specifically designed for electric drive systems.

For German customers, the timing of delivery is particularly important as the government’s “environmental bonus” for electric vehicle purchases will be changing in 2023. The bonus, which is currently up to 9000 euros and jointly funded by the government and manufacturers, will be reduced to 4000 euros in 2023 and 3000 euros in 2024 and 2025. Additionally, the bonus will no longer apply to plugin hybrids.

Hyundai assures German customers that they will not miss out on the government bonus if they place their order for an electric vehicle in a timely manner. The company guarantees that customers who finalize a purchase agreement with a Hyundai dealer before certain deadlines will still qualify for the environmental bonus. These deadlines vary by model, with the Ioniq 5 having a deadline of April 30th, the Tucson plug-in having a deadline of May 31st, and the Kona Elektro, Ioniq Elektro, and Santa Fe plug-in having a deadline of June 30th, 2022.
