2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5

by admin


The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a new all-electric compact crossover with advanced technology, futuristic styling, and a versatile interior. Intended as a Hyundai subbrand, the Ioniq moniker also applies to a flood of upcoming EV models, but 2022 5 has debuted first. It features an 800-volt architecture that allows impressive charging speeds, and we estimate it’ll have a driving range between 258 and 290 miles. Available with rear- or all-wheel drive, the EV ute makes between 225 and 320 horsepower. Its eco-friendly interior boasts a tech-centric dashboard, reclining front seats with footrests, and generous passenger space.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Ioniq 5 has an electric-only powertrain that’s available in two potencies. The rear-drive configuration generates 225 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, which Hyundai says will propel the 5 from zero to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds. The all-wheel-drive version is much more powerful, with 320 horses and a substantial 446 pound-feet, and quicker, too. It’s said to catapult to 60 mph in 5.2 ticks. The 5 rides on Hyundai and Kia’s new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which, again, will underpin the companies’ slew of incoming new EV models.

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

With 800 volts of operating voltage, the Ioniq 5 has the same type of advanced electrical architecture as the Audi e-Tron GT and Porsche Taycan. However, as it stands, its battery has a smaller usable battery capacity. The Ioniq’s pack supplies 77.4 kWh and can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in around 18 minutes or add 68 miles in about five minutes when plugged into a DC fast charger. Hyundai is targeting a 300-mile range for the rear-drive model and 269 miles with all-wheel drive. We estimate the final versions will offer between 258 and 290 miles of range.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Since Hyundai hasn’t released any information about the Ioniq 5’s efficiency, we have nothing to report here. Once those details come out, and we have the opportunity to test one, we’ll evaluate how efficient the Ioniq 5 is in the real world.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

While not as artsy as the cabin teased by the Hyundai 45 Concept, the Ioniq 5’s interior boasts a tech-savvy space with a digitized dashboard and a heavy dose of eco-friendly materials. A head-up display with augmented reality that can project navigation directions on the windshield is just one fanciful feature. The compact crossover also takes advantage of its all-electric packaging, with a completely flat floor for maximum passenger and cargo space. The front seats also recline and incorporate footrests, which will let folks relax while the Ioniq is charging. With a wheelbase that’s longer than the three-row Hyundai Palisade, the 5 has ample front- and rear-seat passenger room. Its large center console has lots of storage space, and on top-spec Limited trims, it slides back and forth between the front seats.
