2 min read

NEW – The first new generation electric vehicle from the Korean firm is increasing its versions.

Inspired by the 45 concept revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019, the Ioniq 5 crossover does not lack allure with its forms devoid of aggressiveness and its 20-inch wheels positioned at the four corners. Based on the E-GMP platform serving Hyundai’s electric offensive, this vehicle is 30mm longer (4.63m) than the latest Tucson and as tall as the Nissan Qashqai (1.60m). Thanks to its electrical architecture marked by a flat floor and its generous wheelbase (3 meters long), the Ioniq 5 offers record space.


Symbol of the entry into a new era, the cabin operates its revolution with a very refined dashboard incorporating a huge digital panel similar to what Mercedes currently offers. The completely redesigned ergonomics will be able to rely on a mobile central console which slides 140 mm. In its logic of reducing its carbon footprint, the Korean manufacturer mainly uses recycled materials to make the elements of the interior.


As for the generous and flexible rear space (60/40 bench sliding over 135 mm), it benefits not only from the long wheelbase but also from a thickness of the front seats reduced by 30%. Hyundai is also announcing a load volume of 531 liters to which we can add 57 liters under the front hood for 2-wheel drive models; half month for the four-wheel drive version.

To meet the multiplicity of needs, Hyundai will offer several versions of the Ioniq 5 crossover based on two battery models, 58 kWh and 72.6 kWh. The entry-level version is based on a 125 kW (170 hp) electric machine installed on the rear axle and making Ioniq 5 a rear-wheel drive. A 4WD version is also available with the small battery. It combines a 53 kW (72 hp) engine at the front and 120 kW (163 hp) at the rear. In this case, 100 km / h is reached in 6.1 seconds, 2.4 seconds less than the rear-wheel drive version.


For its part, the 72.6 kWh battery is also available in rear-wheel drive and with four-wheel drive. In the first case, it is associated with an electric machine of 160 kW (217 hp), which allows a 0 to 100 km / h in 7.4 seconds. The second option, the most efficient (0 to 100 km / h in 5.2 seconds) combines a 70 kW (95 hp) engine at the front and 155 kW (210 hp) at the rear. According to the manufacturer, it allows a range of around 470 km. Thanks to its platform compatible with 400 and 800 V charging infrastructures, Ioniq 5 will be able to recharge its battery to 80% in 18 minutes on a 350 kW fast terminal. Motorists will be able to recover 100 km of autonomy per 5 minutes.

Finally, Ioniq 5 embeds the V2L reverse charger technology which makes it possible to use or recharge any type of electrical device, when stationary or while driving. The first model of the Ioniq electric family, this crossover will be marketed at the end of the first half of 2021.
