Electric vehicle buyers looking at Hyundai’s Ioniq lineup can look forward to getting their car serviced half as often as before
Recommended servicing intervals now stretch to two years or 30,000km, whatever comes first, making Hyundai one of only a handful of manufacturers to offer these lengths in Australia.
By removing the combustion engine and accompanying drivetrain parts, car manufacturers are often able to extend servicing intervals, due to there being no need for common maintenance such as changing engine oil and transmission fluid.
However, regardless of drivetrain, all cars need to have items such as brakes checked and maintained and other parts such as cabin filters do need to be replaced over time.
Tesla doesn’t have set intervals for its servicing, instead recommends that drivers come in as each component requires maintenance or replacement.
Servicing both a single-motor RWD and dual-motor AWD Ioniq 6 will set back buyers $560 for the first two intervals, up to the 48-month/60,000km mark. Proceeding intervals have not yet been released.
The Ioniq 5 is slightly more expensive with both of its dual- and single-motor options requiring buyers to fork out $570 at the first and third service, while the second service (at the 48-month/60,000km mark) commands quite a bit more at $1090.
