Hyundai introduces Ioniq 5 electric CUV

Ioniq 5 goes on sale this fall with a pre-reservation program for early purchasers.

Hyundai Motor North America introduced on May 24 the new Ioniq 5, an electric crossover utility vehicle (CUV) with a targeted driving range of 300 miles.

Ioniq 5 rides on Hyundai’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which the company says allows for more interior space and optimized performance. Ioniq 5 is part of Hyundai Motor Group’s plan to introduce 23 BEV models and sell 1 million BEV units worldwide by 2025. Ioniq 5 goes on sale this fall with a pre-reservation program for early purchasers.

Hyundai says features of the new CUV include:

  • Extended 118.1-in. wheelbase
  • Parametic Pixel LED lighting elements
  • V-shaped front bumper incorporates daytime running lamps (DRLs)
  • Flush door handles
  • Front and rear forms merge together at the doors
  • 20-in. wheels

Recently, Hyundai Motor America (HMA) collaborated with Electrify America to support owners of the 2021 Kona Electric and Ioniq plug-in sedans with 250 kWh of included DC Fast charging in the new Electrify America app. Electrify America has a network of over 600 stations. HMA will continue to partner with Electrify America by offering unlimited 30-minute charging sessions for two years from the date of purchase on their growing network of chargers. Electrify America says it plans to have about 800 charging stations with more than 3,500 chargers either open or in development by the end of 2021.

Ioniq 5 is also available with a range of drive motors. Customers can mate the 77.4 kWh battery pack to two electric motor layouts, either with a rear motor only or with both front and rear motors. The dual-motor setup is an all-wheel drive (AWD) option producing a combined power output of 320 HP (74 kW front + 165 kW rear) and 446 ft.-lbs. of torque. An Ioniq 5 with this configuration can go from 0 to 60 MPH in less than 5 seconds, the company says. The single-motor layout with a rear motor offers 225 HP (168 kW) and 258 ft.-lbs. of torque and two-wheel drive (2WD).

When equipped with a single motor (2WD), Ioniq 5’s targeted maximum driving range on a single charge is 300 miles. The targeted range of the dual motor all-wheel drive SE & SEL models is 269. The Limited AWD model has a targeted range of 244 miles. All configurations have a top speed of 115 MPH and can tow a trailer with a capacity of up to 1,500 pounds.

Ioniq 5’s E-GMP can support both 400-V and 800-V charging infrastructures. The platform offers 800-V charging capability as standard, and can accommodate 400-V charging without the need for additional components or adapters. With a 350-kW charger, Hyundai says the Ioniq 5 can charge from 10 to 80% in 18 minutes. If the owner only has five minutes, the Ioniq 5 can recoup about 68 miles of range using a 350-kW fast charger. The standard 10.9 kW on-board charger completes a full charge in 6 hours and 43 minutes using Level 2 charging.

Ioniq 5 is the first Hyundai model to offer Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA 2). Other driving assistance systems include Smart Cruise Control with Machine Learning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), High Beam Assist (HBA), and more.

IONIQ 5 will initially be sold in Hyundai stores in the 10 zero-emissions vehicle (ZEV) states plus Texas, Fla., Ill., Pa, and Ariz. followed by a broader rollout in 2022.
