Between gas prices and the environment, there are plenty of reasons why drivers are looking to electric vehicle (EV) and plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) versions of popular models like the Hyundai Kona and Hyundai Tucson. That also means that our Hyundai dealers are getting more questions about the types of PHEV and EV chargers available.
