In an announcement on 30th September 2020 it said that after France, Italy, Spain, Norway, the Czech Republic and Switzerland,
the UK was supposed to get the 'Charge MyHyundai' service activated in Q4 2020.
Now we are in 2021 I have not heard anything.

Any news/rumours about this? Or has Brexit thrown a spanner in the works, as I think it is supposed to work in Europe too.

I have given up waiting, this is the Hyundai UK response dated 18th October to that very question. This told me nothing I did not already know.


“ Thank you for your email.

In regards the partnership between Hyundai and IONITY, please see the following links:

https://ionity.eu/https://ionity.eu/

https://ionity.eu/en/where-and-how.html

We are currently in the process of finalising our relationship with IONITY, so we are unable to confirm our plans at this stage. We will make customers aware of any developments in due course.

Kind regards”

I am not going anywhere at present to need Ionity chargers, or indeed anyone else's. Their deal in France with the Charge My Hyundai is nothing special. But I do wonder why its talking them so long to roll out the card in the UK. For most of us not worth paying a subscription till we are allowed out.

I wouldn't hold your breath. No doubt any deals would apply to new cars.

Given that's there's not actually that many Ionity chargers in the UK and that now, with the daft Brexit thing, the roll out of Ionity chargers will no doubt stall given it's a part EU funded setup.

I stumbled across a brand new set of Ionity chargers that had just been installed in the services on M5 at J28 about 8 weeks ago. Bit pricey - but worked well and fast. Most allocated funding from the EU that was already committed to the UK before Brexit is going to be continued until it has been spent, but also, I assume that because Ionity is not a UK company, that they'll continue to get EU funding to expand their network regardless. They are also in the middle of installing a new set in Beaconsfield, so doesn't look like they've been slowed down.
