The Hyundai Ioniq 5 just showed itself, correcting everyone called a hatchback-including us. Hyundai’s new electric car is the CUV, even if it does look like a hatchback. If this is the case, the Ioniq 5 will be a hatchback with a length of 4.64 meters (182.7 inches).
This makes it larger than the Volkswagen ID.4 and almost as large as the Tesla Model 3. However, this is not the only impressive technical specification of the new electric car. According to Hyundai, its 3 m (118.1 in) wheelbase is the largest among electric vehicles. For example, the wheelbase of the Tesla Model S is 2.96 m (116.5 in).
To avoid making it look like a real long car, Hyundai gave it 20-inch wheels and a height of 1.61 m (63.4 inches). The width of Ioniq 5 is 1.89 m (74.4 inches), and its luggage compartment can hold 531 liters (18.75 cubic feet) of cargo.
For thrift fans, even small electric vehicles can provide it. If only the rear-wheel drive is used, in all markets except North America, there is 57 liters (2 cubic feet) of space under the clamshell hood. There, the RWD and AWD versions of the electric crossover will all accommodate 24 liters (0.85 cubic feet) of space in this compartment.
As expected, Ioniq 5 is the first product built on the E-GMP platform. It will have two battery pack options: 58 kWh or 72.6 kWh. Unfortunately, Hyundai did not disclose the power range of the 58 kWh unit.
Under the WLTP cycle, the 72.6 kWh battery pack applied to the AWD version of Ioniq 5 will be able to reach between 470 km (292 miles) and 480 km (298 miles). Hyundai also did not tell how far the RWD Ioniq 5 equipped with this battery can travel. In any case, this is probably the most effective choice of all methods.
Strangely, Ioniq 5 has four motor options. A battery equipped with a 58 kWh battery pack can provide 125 kW (168 hp) in its RWD option. AWD added a 53 kW (71 hp) electric motor to the car, but the rear motor lost 5 kW, providing only 120 kW (161 hp) for a total of 173 kW (232 hp).
When a 72.6 kWh battery pack is used for frequency division, the rear motor alone produces 160 kW (215 hp). The front motor of the AWD has 70 kW (94 hp), while the rear unit loses 5 kW, making its total power 225 kW (302 hp).
If you want to ask what the transmission torque of the hatchback steroid is, the 255 Nm of the front electric motor and the 350 Nm of the rear unit are added, and the total is 605 Nm (443.2 lb-ft). The most powerful Ioniq 5 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.2 seconds, and the top speed of all derivatives is 185 km/h.
According to Hyundai, it can tow a trailer weighing 1,600 kg (3,527 lb). We don’t know how heavy the car is, and there is no ground clearance. For dividers, this is relevant information. The brand may release it to every market where Ioniq 5 will be launched in the first half of 2021.
When it comes to its 800V battery pack and its fast charging capability, it is not clear whether Ioniq 5 can beat Taycan. Using a 350 kW fast charger within 18 minutes, the charging capacity changed from 10% to 80%. Porsche claims that using a 270 kW charger can reduce the charge from 5% to 80% in 22.5 minutes. Ioniq 5 also has a built-in 400V fast charging capability.
In the new electric crossover interior, there are three things that will attract the attention of potential buyers: a 12-inch digital cluster integrated with a 12-inch infotainment touch screen, Universal Island, and V2L.
The first item is self-explanatory, but the internal pictures will illustrate its importance. The interior is simple and reminds us of Honda e. In fact, Ioniq 5 looks like a bigger Honda e, and many American customers may consider buying rather than buying some. Hyundai also promised that the head-up display (HUD) will provide augmented reality, which is a feature already provided by the Volkswagen ID series.
The universal island is a sliding center console that can move 14 cm (5.5 inches). We don’t know what might be used-maybe our readers will understand this. V2L (or vehicle to load) is easier to understand.
Under the rear seats and on the charging port, two V2L ports allow Ioniq 5 to provide up to 3.6 kW of power to charge high-power electrical equipment with the help of converters. Even if the car is turned off, the V2L port on the Ioniq 5 charging port can work normally.
The last relevant information about Ioniq 5 is the road driving assistance system 2 (HDA 2). Hyundai’s suggestion is that this is the company version of Tesla Autopilot and GM Super Cruise, or a level 2 driving assistant. Ioniq 5 is the first vehicle to show it. We will have to wait and see to compare it with competitors.
Judging from the appearance and appearance so far, Ioniq 5 can compete with Volkswagen ID.4, Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E for car buyers looking for stylish and spacious electric vehicles. If its price is as aggressive as its appearance, it should be one of the best-selling electric cars in all markets.
