In August 2020, Hyundai announced the establishment of a new company under its “umbrella”, Ioniq, whose range will consist exclusively of electric models. According to the Korean company, the new brand will “offer customer-centric EV experiences focused on connected lifestyle solutions, according to the vision of the company Progress for Humanity”.
By 2025, Hyundai will release three new electric models with the Ioniq brand, and today, after an extensive teasing period, our company presents its first model, the Ioniq 5. This is the production version of the 45 Concept , which we saw at the Frankfurt fair in 2019.
Ioniq electric models will have a numerical name, with even numbers used for sedans and odd numbers for SUVs. The goal of Hyundai Motor Group is to have sold 1 million electric vehicles and to have a 10% market share, by 2025.
Turning to the Ioniq 5, this is the first model based on the new E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform), on which all future Hyundai and Kia electric cars will be based.
It offers several advantages over existing platforms, which are primarily designed to accommodate internal combustion engines. Benefits include improved performance, upgraded dynamic features, increased autonomy and larger interior space for passengers and luggage.
2Dimensions / Spaces
The Ioniq 5 is a medium-sized CUV, with a length of up to 4,635 mm, a width of 1,890 mm, a height of 1,605 mm, and a wheelbase that will reach 3,000 mm! The rear luggage compartment amounts to 531 liters, which increases to 1,591 liters, with the folding rear seats. However, there is extra luggage space at the front, which in the two-wheeled version has a volume of 57 liters and in the four-wheel drive 24 liters.
3Electric Motors / Batteries
The Ioniq 5 is offered with one (rear mounted) or two electric motors (one per axle, making it four-wheel drive). In addition, it is offered with two battery capacities, where the Standard Range is 58 kWh and the Long Range 72.6 kWh.
The Ioniq 5 Standard Range in two-wheeled option, the total output is 170 horsepower (125 kW) and 350 Nm, with 0-100 km / h coming in 8.5 seconds. Then, the Ioniq 5 Standard Range in four-wheel drive option, the performance of the total is 235 horsepower (173 kW) and 605 Nm, with the 0-100 km / h coming in 6.1 seconds.
Continuing, the Ioniq 5 Long Range in two-wheeled option, the performance of the set is 218 horsepower (160 kW) and 350 Nm, with the 0-100 km / h coming in 7.4 seconds. Then, the Ioniq 5 Long Range in four-wheel drive option, the performance of the total is 306 horsepower (225 kW) and 605 Nm, with the 0-100 km / h coming in 5.2 seconds.
The Korean company announces the autonomy of only the Ioniq 5 Long Range in two-wheeled option, where in a WLTP cycle it amounts to 470 to 480 km.
The Ioniq 5 supports 400V and 800V charging infrastructures, without the need for additional adapters. Using a DC quick charger, from 10% to 80% of the battery takes just 18 minutes, with Hyundai stating that with 5 minutes of charging the car will “gain” 100 km of autonomy (WLTP).
The car will be charged with a simple household socket outlet (2.3 kW), with a household wallbox (11 kW), in public chargers (11 kW). It will be available in the future with photovoltaic panels on its roof to charge the batteries.
Recently, Hyundai and Kia became partners and shareholders in the Ionity charging network, and in selected European countries, Ioniq 5 customers will be able to enjoy a one-year free subscription to the Ionity charger network.
This is part of Hyundai’s new all-European integrated charging service, Charge myHyundai. The latter offers access to over 200,000 charging points throughout Europe.
Charge myHyundai is already available in France, Italy, Norway and Switzerland. The service will be operational in the UK in the first quarter of 2021, with Hyundai intending to expand the service to Germany, Spain, the Czech Republic, Denmark and Sweden within the first half of 2021.
The Ioniq 5 features a progressive design language, inspired by the Hyundai 45 Concept. Guided by the design identity of Hyundai’s “Sensuous Sportiness”, the Ioniq 5 has a monocoque-style body, and offers a bridge to the future of electric mobility that is technologically advanced, environmentally friendly and connected to the needs of today’s customers .
The unique exterior design of the model is characterized by clean and crisp lines, creating an elegant and refined look. The surfaces and shapes give an angular, almost geometric look, with Hyundai designers incorporating Parametric Pixel luminaires at the front and rear.
Ioniq 5 is available in 8 colors, Gravity Gold Matte, Shooting-Star Gray Matte, Digital Teal-Green Pearl, Lucid Blue Pearl, Atlas White, Cyber Gray Metallic, Phantom Black Pearl, Galactic Gray Metallic.
Speaking of the interior, it takes full advantage of the new platform, adopting a completely flat floor. This layout – in addition to the extra legroom – allowed engineers to develop a sliding front center console (Universal Island).
It can be moved backwards up to 140 mm, which will be useful in a narrow parking lot, as the driver will be able to easily pull the car out through the passenger door and vice versa.
There are two 12-inch screens on the dashboard, one in front of the driver for the digital instrument panel and the other for the infotainment system, both of which are housed inside a large piece of glass.
The Ioniq 5 also features a gear selector mounted behind the steering wheel, as well as a head-up, with augmented reality support. The company states that many of the internal contact points are made from recycled materials, including PET bottles.
