With two types of battery capacity, front and all-wheel drive, the Hyundai Ioniq 5, the Korean brand’s first model specifically developed for electric operation, will arrive at the end of the year. The 4.6-meter car looks exactly like one at a glance
VW Golf I-es Hyundai Pony is from the seventies, but since it’s 20 percent bigger, it’s actually a huge, high-bellied, horrible (exactly 3 meters!) Wheelbase something.
Praise to Hyundai designers for hiding the unusually large wheelbase behind a familiar, friendly shape – and praise to its engineers for creating this particular wheelbase that, along with a completely flat floor, makes the interior not only very spacious but also perfectly rearrangable.
A key part of this is the sliding floor console, which has cup holders, a huge storage shelf and other useful features. If we push back, we are free to drive left and right at the front – the driver can even get out on the right side if he wants to. The legroom is reminiscent of a dance hall at the back, and the front seats can be tilted into a recliner – in which case a calf support emerges from under them so that we can really relax while, for example, charging the battery.
It’s not as if you have to wait very long: a 72.6 kWh or 58 kWh battery can be charged with up to 800V, 350 kW, so you can reach 80% of a discharged battery in 18 minutes. The Ioniq is available in three power levels: the rear-wheel drive version has a single electric motor of 125 kW (170 hp) with a smaller battery, 160 kW (218 hp) with a larger battery, while the two-wheel version of the all-wheel version combines 225 kW (306 hp) and 605 Nm delivers torque. The latter is available with both small and large batteries; the former accelerates to 100 km / h in 6.1 seconds and the latter in 5.2 seconds. Its rear-wheel-drive Ioniq 5 doesn’t even complain about its acceleration: it takes 7.4 or 8.5 seconds to reach 100 km / h, depending on engine power.
Passengers have plenty of space and luggage can’t complain either: depending on the position of the seats, the rear cavity is 531/1591 liters; to this is added a boot in the nose, which with all-wheel drive is 24, without 57 liters. The Ioniq 5 can not only carry but also tow up to 1.6 tonnes.
The car received two 3.6 kW, 220V sockets: one under the rear seats and another next to the charging cable connector opening – the latter can also be used with the car disconnected.
In front of the driver is a 12-inch, configurable digital instrument cluster, with a multimedia display of the same size in the center; during the latter, separate climate control switches indicate that Hyundai is paying attention to customer feedback. The third display is an augmented reality head-up display that displays not only standard information but also, for example, an image of a panoramic camera system that displays the car’s surroundings.
Ioniq 5 is available for pre-order for the time being, in the first round we can apply for an introductory series of 3000 pieces; the first copies of this will be handed over to the owners as early as this summer.
