Hyundai Ioniq 5 price and launch

Thanks to a little bit of 1980s eight-bit design and some very fantastic new-era electric, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 dazzles as a fast-charging SUV with a significant driving range. A 168 horsepower, single-motor, rear-drive Ioniq 5 and a 320 horsepower, all-wheel-drive, dual-motor variant with a 266 estimated mile range each are available. One of the most potent EVs on the market right now costs approximately $60,000 and has a long range of 303 miles. The 350-kW DC fast-charging capabilities, however, are what makes this EV the real star. It permits charging rates equivalent to those offered by far more expensive and luxurious EVs like the Porsche Taycan and Lucid Air.

Hyundai adds small, but sufficient, equipment changes to the Ioniq 5 since it was just introduced last year, raising the EPA rating in a few specific areas. The EPA now estimates the range of all-wheel drive vehicles at 266 miles, up from 256 miles last year. Additionally, their MPGe values have increased a little. All models now have a preconditioning feature and a battery heating system. Finally, the Ioniq 5’s SEL and Limited models can tow up to 2300 pounds, in case you need to use it for that purpose.

Power and Performance

The Ioniq 5 features an all-electric engine with adjustable outputs. A single rear-mounted electric motor can be powered by the standard-range battery, which produces 168 horsepower. Hyundai claims that the Ioniq 5’s acceleration from 0 to 60 mph takes only 7.4 seconds when equipped with the larger battery with the rear-drive configuration’s 225 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. With 320 hp and 446 lb-ft of torque, the all-wheel-drive variant is far more potent and faster than the rear-wheel-drive version. Our test track showed that the time to 60 mph was 4.5 seconds. The Ioniq 5 we tested was remarkably composed on a range of surfaces, and its low centre of gravity and rather wide tyres for an electric vehicle gave it the impression of deceptive agility.

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

The Ioniq 5 has a 220-mile range with the standard 58.0 kWh battery pack. The larger 77.4 kWh battery has a single-motor range of 303 miles and a dual-motor range of 266 miles. In our real-world range test, the dual-motor model went 75 mph and covered 210 miles on a single charge. According to Hyundai, the larger battery can be charged from 10% to 80% in about 18 minutes when connected to a DC fast charger and can add 68 miles of range in about five minutes.

Fuel Economy and Real-World

When equipped with all-wheel drive, the Ioniq 5’s combined EPA rating drops from 114 MPGe with the long-range battery to 101 MPGe. A standard-range battery and rear-wheel drive should yield a combined MPGe of 113 for the EV SUV. Our thorough testing revealed that the dual-motor Ioniq 5 could travel 210 kilometers on a single charge when driven at 75 miles per hour on a divided highway.

Interior, Comfort, and Boot Space

The Ioniq 5 has a computerized dashboard, a lot of eco-friendly materials, and a tech-savvy environment, but it doesn’t have the same artistic flair as the cabin of the Hyundai 45 Concept. One such fancy function is an augmented reality head-up display that can display on the windshield guidance for the driver to follow. The compact electric crossover maximizes its space efficiency by providing a floor that is perfectly flat, allowing for the most possible passenger and cargo volume. While charging, passengers may stretch out in the Ioniq’s front seats, which recline and have footrests. The 5’s wheelbase is longer than the Hyundai Palisade’s third row, allowing for more legroom for front and back seat occupants. When equipped with the top-tier Limited package, the large centre console between the front seats slides back and forth and provides a tonne of storage space.

Connectivity and Infotainment

According to Hyundai, the Ioniq 5 is equipped with a plethora of cutting-edge connectivity and infotainment capabilities that promote a more connected lifestyle. The digital gauge cluster and the 12.0 inch touchscreen both reside on the same panel in the dashboard, but the former is used for media playback. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are among the technologies that fall under this category. Unfortunately, in order to connect an Apple or Android smartphone, you need to use a cable.

Driver-Assistance and Safety Features

The Ioniq 5 boasts a number of driver aid technologies, including Highway Human Assist 2, a semi-autonomous driving mode akin to GM’s Super Cruise. This mode can drive on highways and change lanes with minimal user input. See the NHTSA and IIHS websites for more details on the Ioniq 5’s crash test results (IIHS). Topping the list of anticipated crucial safety features are:

  • Forward collision warning and the automatic emergency braking are also offered.
  • Options include a warning if you start to drift out of your lane and a system to help you stay in your lane.
  • An Adaptive Cruise Control is available.

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Hyundai offers a warranty that is among the best available. It also includes a substantial amount of free regular upkeep.

  • Five years or 60,000 miles are covered by the limited warranty.
  • 10 years or 100,000 miles are covered under the powertrain warranty.
  • The battery has a ten-year warranty or 100,000 miles.
  • Three years or 36,000 miles are covered under the complimentary maintenance period.
