Free Hyundai charger, Toyota hybrid EVs, Audi Q4 E-Tron boost: Today’s Car News


by (Bengt Halvorson)



Hyundai wraps in free chargers with its new EVs. Look for various improvements for Audi’s Q4 E-Tron. New projections are more bullish about global EV adoption. And what’s Toyota calling its electrified models? This and more, here at Green Car Reports. 

Those who purchase or lease a new Hyundai Ioniq 5, Ioniq 6, or Kona Electric through October 31 can get a free home charger—plus up to $600 to cover installation. It’s offered through the company’s Hyundai Home service, which aggregates charging-station possibilities and helps frame solar and energy storage options. 

The Audi Q4 E-Tron is getting increased range, plus faster charging, more power, and a sportier tune, the automaker announced Thursday—for Europe. While Audi hasn’t yet confirmed any of these changes for the U.S., based on how Audi has introduced improvements to its larger E-Tron models they’re likely for 2025.

Toyota earlier this week introduced an “Electrified Diversified” marketing campaign that appears to blur the differences between its hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and EVs. Quick: What’s a “hybrid EV,” and is a “battery EV” or a “plug-in EV” the one without a tailpipe?

And research presented earlier this week by the Rocky Mountain Institute has led to a revised forecast from the organization—that EV sales will top two-thirds of global car sales by 2030. Credit the acceleration of EV sales in “late-adopting” countries with robust new-car sales.
