Hyundai Ioniq 5 Production: The Hyundai Ioniq 5 will be the first car produced at Hyundai's new Georgia factory this fall.

Production at the Georgia plant will start in October.

Federal EV Tax Credit: The US-made Ioniq 5 is expected to qualify for the full $7,500 federal EV tax credit.

The South Korea-made version does not qualify for this credit, except through a leasing loophole.

Battery Production and Sourcing: Hyundai will not produce batteries at the Georgia plant until about a year after production starts.

In the meantime, batteries will be sourced from a Hungarian factory operated by SK On, Hyundai’s partner.

Charging Standards: An important consideration is whether the first vehicles will use the North American Charging Standard (NACS).

Hyundai announced Tesla Supercharger access for its cars starting in Q4 2024.

All new or refreshed EVs from Hyundai will come with NACS charging ports starting in Q4 2024.

The announcement leaves open the possibility that initial US-made Ioniq 5s may have CCS ports instead.

Hyundai has not explicitly confirmed whether the first US-made models will have NACS ports.
