The electric CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle) is the first model from the new Ioniq sub-brand
The 4635 millimeter long, 1890 millimeter wide and 1605 millimeter high Ioniq 5 is sold in several electric drive configurations. Depending on the power level, up to two electric motors, rear or all-wheel drive are available. There is also a choice between a 58 kWh or a 72.6 kWh lithium-ion battery. All variants reach a top speed of 185 km / h, the range on one charge is up to 480 kilometers according to the WLTP standard, depending on the version.
The top engine of the Ioniq 5 consists of a rear engine and a front engine with a system output of 225 kW (305 hp). Both together result in all-wheel drive and a torque of 605 Nm. In conjunction with the 72.6 kWh battery, this variant accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds. In combination with the 58 kWh battery, the two electric motors together produce 173 kW (235 PS). This configuration of the Ioniq 5 reaches the 100 km/h mark from a standing start after 6.1 seconds.
In addition to the two all-wheel drive versions, the Ioniq 5 is also available with rear-wheel drive. In conjunction with the small battery, the electric drive has an output of 125 kW (170 hp). With the large battery and rear-wheel drive, the electric motor has an output of 160 kW (217 hp) and in this variant enables the maximum range of 470 to 480 kilometers in accordance with the WLTP standard. The Ioniq 5 can draw electricity at charging points with up to 800 V. According to Hyundai, the high-voltage battery can be filled from 10 to 80 percent of its capacity in 18 minutes at a 350 kW fast charging station. A charging time of five minutes is sufficient for a range of 100 km according to the WLTP standard
In the interior of the Ioniq 5, Hyundai emphasizes the designers' focus on "living space character". Its centerpiece is the center console - a “multifunctional island”: “It can be pushed back by up to 140 millimeters. In combination with the flat floor of the vehicle, this movable island enables the occupants to get in and out flexibly, more freedom of movement and a high level of comfort, ”it says.
The spatial experience includes flexibly adjustable, heated front seats with fold-out leg rests and relaxation function. The driver and front passenger can lean back "at an ergonomically optimal angle". The construction of the front seats provides a lot of legroom for the rear passengers. The rear bench seat can be folded down and moved electrically by up to 135 millimeters. Up to 531 liters are available in the trunk, which can be increased to 1,600 liters with the rear seats folded down. A compartment under the bonnet with a capacity of 57 liters provides additional storage space. If even more space is required, a trailer with a permissible total weight of up to 1,600 kilograms can be docked.
Hyundai uses sustainably sourced materials in the interior. The seats are clad in leather that has been dyed and treated with vegetable oil extracts from linseed. Further upholstery consists of textiles made from sustainable fibers such as organic sugar cane, wool and plant-based yarns. Hyundai also uses fabrics woven from the fibers of recycled PET plastic bottles. Surfaces such as the dashboard, the switches, the steering wheel and the door panels are coated with a polyurethane organic paint made from rapeseed and corn oil.
