As electric vehicles (EVs) gain popularity, especially in eco-conscious regions like California, the accessibility of charging stations becomes a pivotal aspect of car shopping. Whether you’re in the market for a new car or a used car, understanding the charging capabilities of a potential EV is crucial. Today, we’re diving into the Hyundai IONIQ 5, a standout model of electric vehicles, which has announced recently that it will adopt the  North American Charging Standard (NACS) which brings access to 12,00 of Tesla’s superchargers in North America starting in Q1 of 2025. 

The Hyundai IONIQ 5: A Brief Overview 

The Hyundai IONIQ 5 is not just another entry in the EV market; it’s a bold statement by Hyundai, with a futuristic design with cutting-edge technology. This is Hyundai’s most awarded SUV with the standard range FWD model bringing a range of up to 303 miles. The IONIQ 5 stands out as a top choice for both new car and buyers featuring advantages like no emissions, HOV lane access, quick acceleration, no more oil changes, and regenerative braking. 

Charging Capabilities: More Than One Way to Charge 

One of the Hyundai IONIQ 5’s most significant advantages is its versatile charging capabilities coming in 2025 to access the Tesla supercharger network. Unlike some EVs that are restricted to specific charging networks, the IONIQ 5 can be charged in multiple ways. Owners can charge at home with a level one home charging option that plugs into your standard 120V AC outlet, or if you are looking for a faster way to charge, the  ChargePoint, a 240 Volt level 2 charger can charge up to nine times faster than a conventional 110-volt outlet. You can also find Level 3 fast public charging easily. This flexibility allows owners to charge their vehicles at home or at a variety of public stations, which is essential for long-distance travel and convenient for everyday use.

The Tesla Supercharger Network 

Tesla’s Supercharger network is renowned for its extensive coverage and rapid charging speeds. Traditionally, this network has been exclusive to Tesla vehicles. However, recent developments have seen Tesla opening its Supercharger stations to other manufacturers including Hyundai, who will adopt North American Charging Standard ports for their electric vehicles in the U.S. and Canada.  

Can Hyundai IONIQ 5 Use Tesla Superchargers? 

As of now, Hyundai IONIQ 5 cannot use the Tesla Supercharger network in the United States. The IONIQ 5 uses a CCS port for charging, while Tesla chargers use a different connector. However, in Q1 2025  non-Tesla EV owners including those with an IONIQ 5, that has an NCAS port will be able to access these fast-charging stations. This development will significantly enhance the charging infrastructure for Hyundai owners. 


The Hyundai IONIQ 5 is a great option for anyone who is looking for a tech-centered driving experience and a top-performing electric vehicle with easy fast charging options. You can not go wrong with the popular IONIQ 5. Please contact us at Ontario Auto Center if you have any questions about this vehicle.
