The Ioniq 5 was designed and built from the ground up as an electric car, the first on the new electric-global modular platform . The electric platform features drive-by-wire and steer-by-wire technology, as well as a flat battery floor. Without the need for transmission tunnels, a steering column, or other intrusions, Hyundai was able to design the 5 for maximum interior space, pushing the wheels to the extreme corners of the body. The result is a vehicle that looks tiny and fits between the Tucson and the Santa Fe in size, but with a wheelbase that is 4 inches taller than the Palisade three-row SUV .

Gropowertrain and performance
The Ioniq 5 will be available in four main configurations, which are distinguished by Standard Range or Long Range battery capacity and rear wheel drive (2WD) or rear wheel drive integral (AWD).
The Standard Range 2WD configuration sta rts with a 58 kilowatt hour lithium-ion battery sending power to a 160 kilowatt motor on the rear axle. With 218 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, the Ioniq 5 takes about 8.5 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph, but it gets faster from there. The standard-range all-wheel-drive model adds a second electric motor to the front axle, producing net horsepower of 235 hp and torque of 446 lb-ft.
The long-range energy capability of the Ioniq 5 varies by region. In North America, we will get the largest battery at 77.4 kWh; overall there is a slightly smaller 72.6 kWh pack. The most pThis pack, when mated with the same 160 kW rear motor as the Standard range, is estimated to be around 300 miles per charge on the European WLTP test cycle. Our EPA test cycle is a bit more stringent, so expect that range to decrease when the Ioniq 5 hits the US, even with our bigger battery.
The Ioniq 5 has bidirectional charging, i.e. can also be used to charge Hyundai
At the top of the range is the Ioniq 5 long-range all-wheel drive. a more powerful front engine than the standard all-wheel-drive model, with a total output of 306 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque. This makes it the fastest version of the dash from 0-60mph, hitting the target in just 5.2 seconds.
With a decent amount of torque in all trims, Hyundai also estimates that the Ioniq 5 should be able to tow over 3,500 pounds.

There is a lot of room inside the Ioniq 5. Hyundai
The range is excellent, but little important if your electric vehicle takes a long time to recharge. Fortunately, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 features the automaker's latest generation of fast-charging technology, along with a few extra tricks in its sharply sculpted sleeves.
Plug in a DC fast charger via the standard The J1772 Combined Charging System (CCS) port and the Ioniq 5 will quickly charge up to 350kW, fast enough to go from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes. In a hurry, plug it in for just 5 minutes to add a quick 100km range - enough for a day on the town for most. Slower household charging level 2, 240 volts and110 volts will no doubt be supported, but charging times for these configurations have not yet been specified.
In addition to being charged, the Ioniq 5 can be the charger through a feature called vehicle charging. V2L allows you to plug other devices - like computers, e-bikes or camping gear - into the 5, which can be recharged via the car battery with a total power of around 3.6 kW . There is a port under the rear seats that is activated when the ignition is on and, with an adapter, high-power gear can be plugged into the Ioniq 5's exterior two-way charging port, even when the vehicle is turned. disabled.
For comparison, the 3.6 kW of the Hyundai is about 70% more power than the Ford F-150 Hybrid 's Standard 2.1kW Pro Power Onboard Inverter - which I recently submitted to a tailgating test - but only half of the Ford 's upgraded 7.2kW big-boy unit. Plus, the Ioniq 5 doesn't generate power, so any power you draw comes from battery storage and EV range to take you home, albeit a small amount. amount of charge can be offset by the roof glass solar panels.
Go on, lie down and sit back comfortably (while the car is stopped, duh). Hyundai
Spacious cabin with lots of of technology
Like most purpose-built electric vehicles, the design of the Ioniq 5 leaves room for two trunks. At the rear you look at a space of 18, 8 cubic feet behind the seats, which can reach 56.2 cubic feet when the 60:40 bench is folded flat. Up front, a 0.85 cubic foot front trunk doesn't really leave much room for it. except maybe a charging cable. In other parts of the world the Ioniq 52WD has up to 2 cubic feet of front storage - about the size of a carry-on suitcase - but here in the US, the 2WD and AWD models are the same fun frunk size.
We don't have a specific passenger volume number yet, but the Ioniq 5 will use its cabin space with a reconfigurable "living space " theme that includes sliding rear seats up to 5.3 inches and “relax and reload” front seats with extendable legrests. One of the coolest features of the 5 is a "universal island " motorized console ( we saw the island console in a teaser last week ), which can slide forward or back, allowing passengers in both rows to access its built-in 15-watt wireless phone charger and space saving spaces.these storage. By sliding to the second row, the console also allows front passengers to exit either side of the vehicle without climbing over a bump, which could come in handy in tight parking situations.
The Ioniq 5 's dashboard is flat in design and lacks a hood over its standard 12-inch digital instrument panel, a stylistic choice that emphasizes the general theme of space. This is reinforced by a column mounted gear lever, just behind the two-spoke steering wheel.
The Ioniq 5 is expected to go on sale in the US later this year. Hyundai
The digital cluster is complemented by a touchscreen infotainment screen from 12-inch series, which houses Hyundai's latest generation of connected services and BlueLink telematics, and features completely new graphics. If that weren't enough for you, the Ioniq 5 will also be the first model to feature Hyundai's new Augmented Reality Head-Up Display, a technology that promises to turn the entire windshield into a screen. Good.
In addition to the dashboard technology, the Ioniq 5 will feature Hy's next generation SmartSense driver assistance systemsundai. This includes the automaker's first implementation of Highway Driving Assist 2, which adds lane centering assistance, lane change assistance, and navigation-based adaptive cruise control to the feature set. The Ioniq 5 will also have what we believe to be one of Hyundai's most exciting driver assistance features, Smart remote parking assistance .
Hyundai plans to make the Ioniq 5 available in select countries in the first half of 2021, and then in North America in the fall. Pricing has yet to be announced, but we expect to have this information (and more) closer to the US launch. Roadshow
