The starting point for most generational changes is the introduction of a new structure that allows manufacturers to design the car that best meets current expectations. In the case of battery-electric models that best fit today’s trend, the use of the newly developed platform is more important than usual, and manufacturers like to go even further and rethink the structure of the complete car, which is lucky from a marketing point of view .
After electric cars made of models with internal combustion engines (Ioniq and Kona in Europe), Hyundai has launched the first member of its new electric model family, the Ioniq 5. In no way is the new feature built on the EGMP platform similar to the company’s current types, which is not a detachment but rather a step forward, and for the first time in the brand’s history, they went back to their roots and recalled the first 1976 Pony. the sleek design is attractive, forming a retro yet futuristic compact at the same time, but only seemingly the middle class is the real hunting ground! What it offers is impressive on paper and live, 4635 mm long, 1890 mm wide, 1605 mm high, with a wheelbase of around 3000 mm, yet odd at most at first glance it is difficult to categorize. Due to its ideal proportions, sophisticated workmanship and imaginative details, we can only speak of optical disappointment.
In the press, South Koreans refer to the interior as an intelligent living space, which becomes apparent immediately after pulling the door handle, as the Ioniq 5 offers unprecedented spaciousness in the compact category, and even in the case of minivans and luxury sedans. . Behind the steering wheel, there is an embarrassingly large amount of space in all directions, and you can easily cross your legs at the back, because even if you slide the 135 mm section, the sliding seat is fully extended. The front floor console can also be pushed, there is already 140 mm between the two end points, but this solution is not only useful for adjusting the comfortable position, but also makes it easier to move between the front seats, as the floor is completely flat due to the built-in batteries. .
The driver’s seat, which can also be used in the reclining deck chair function, can be comfortably positioned, both elbows find their place on soft surfaces, and the driving position evokes compact ones. The steep windshield and relatively short instrument panel make for an ideal view and a good sense of speed, which, in terms of ergonomics, has not been forced by the designers. They threw away the proven, traditional layout found in their current models in exchange for a trendy minimalist look for electric cars. The dashboard, which is mostly made of hard materials, is completely flat, with the interface that replaces the center console on it, as well as the white background display, which gives a huge, crystal-clear picture. All of this makes the driver’s environment a bit more fragile, even though many of the rivals are built specifically for the homey interior. In addition to the armrests made of plastic bottles, wool or vegetable oil-tanned leather, the dashboard cover made of innovative paperette and an artificial carpet made of torn fishing nets and other marine waste, Econyl, are also important parts of the concept. the driving experience in the Ioniq 5 is electrifying.
Built under the standard floor of the 527-liter boot, the 217-horsepower electric motor drives the rear wheels, is powered by a 72.6 kWh lithium-ion battery, and this Hungarian license plate is the most livable with its 350 Nm of torque, 7.4 seconds 0 With an acceleration of -100 km / h, a WLTP consumption of 16.7 kWh / km and a range of 481 km also measured according to the WLTP cycle. Despite the 1.9-tonne weight, it was only slightly noticeable how much weight the driveline had to move, the 5-link rear suspension, the “optimal” weight distribution between the front and rear axles, and the low center of gravity play a big role in easy and precise handling. and wheels fitted with 235/55 R19 tires offered at the base price. The suspension, which winds around Zebegény and in some cases is remarkably comfortable on paved roads and gravel roads, is also one of the strengths of the Ioniq 5, but the South Koreans have not broken down on one of the most delicate issues, power consumption. The 800 V batteries can be charged from 10 to 80% of the charging column up to 350 kW in 18 minutes. On the much more common 50 kW public charger, the same takes 44 minutes, of course on a 230 volt home network this time is extended to 24 hours 40 minutes, but in the event of a power failure it can also be used as a 16 amp socket!
The other equally delicate point is the price, in addition to the active and passive safety extras, the basic model, packed with many amenities, can be taken from HUF 14,999,000 without state support, which is more than a competitive offer…
