IONIQ 5 is the first model in Hyundai's new electric family. It has been developed on the Global Electric Modular Platform (E-GMP) which gives unique proportions, a high wheelbase, an innovative interior design with ecological materials, high performance combined with ultra-fast charging as well as Vehicle-to-Load (V2L).
The new Hyundai IONIQ 5 will go on sale in the coming months (before the second half of 2021) with two battery options: a 58 kWh and a 72.6 kWh. You can choose a single electric motor installed on the rear axle or with two electric motors, one placed at the front and the other at the rear.
The autonomy is 480 km, although this figure is still pending official approval.
At the top of the range, we find the Hyundai IONIQ 5 with all-wheel drive (AWD) and the 72.6 kWh battery, which has 306 hp of power and 605 Nm of torque. The cheapest version of the range will be the one that combines the 58 kWh battery with a single electric motor, with 170 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque.
With a 350 kW charger, the IONIQ 5 can charge from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes. IONIQ 5 drivers only need to charge the vehicle for five minutes to achieve 100 km of autonomy, according to the WLTP cycle.
The new IONIQ 5 aims to be a truly revolutionary electric car in many aspects, such as design or its technology, without neglecting the interior. A cabin with recycled materials in pursuit of sustainability. The seats, headliner, door trim, floor or armrests use recycled materials.
But above the above, the cabin stands out for being very spacious and loaded with technology. For the first time at Hyundai, the IONIQ 5 features an augmented reality Head-up Display, which basically turns the windshield into a display with various information. We also have a digital instrument panel with a 12-inch screen, plus another central touch screen for the infotainment system, which has a new interface.
A very particular feature of the Hyundai IONIQ 5 are the seats, which recline to a position that simulates weightlessness, and its sliding centre console. This console can be moved 140 mm longitudinally and incorporates, in addition to the armrest and storage spaces, cup holders for both rows of seats, a 15 W wireless charger for mobile phones and USB ports.
And if the cabin leaves a lot of space for its passengers, the trunk is not far behind. The IONIQ 5 offers 531 litres of boot space, to which must be added another 57 litres of the front boot (in all-wheel-drive versions the front boot is 24 litres due to the second electric motor). The rear luggage compartment can be extended by moving the seats forward (up to 135 mm), or by partially or fully folding them.
The IONIQ 5 comes equipped with the next evolution of the Hyundai SmartSense and is the first Hyundai model to offer Highway Driving Assist 2. There is also the assistant to avoid frontal collisions, the blind spot assistant, the intelligent assistant of speed limits or the automatic high beam.
The new Hyundai IONIQ 5 will begin shipping in the first half of 2021. @Hyundai.
