Hyundai has promised 23 global electric vehicles by 2025, and the 2022 Ioniq 5 is the first of the lineup. With an abundance of technology on the inside, including an augmented reality head-up display, as well as horsepower aplenty and adequate range, the Ioniq 5 compact SUV certainly impresses. Hyundai's 2022 Ioniq 5 will go on sale this fall followed by a sedan and SUV in 2022 and 2024, respectively.
Starting with the Ioniq 5's power output, in rear-wheel drive form the vehicle can produce up to 215 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. These figures apply to the Long Range model with a 72.6 kWh battery (77.4 kWh for U.S with same power output). Standard Range RWD models on the other hand put out 168 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, and utilize a 58 kWh battery. Long Range Ioniq 5s with all-wheel drive can boast up to 302 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque, while Standard Range AWD variants generate 232 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque.
In terms of range, the Ioniq 5 will do between 292 and 298 miles on a single charge, according to the WLTP testing standard. Partial charging can be achieved extraordinarily quickly, and Hyundai claims the EV can be charged from 10-80 percent in just 18 minutes (When using 350-kW charger) - this compares to the Porsche Taycan, which accomplishes this in 22.5 minutes. Also related to charging is the Ioniq 5's Vehicle-to-Load feature, which supplies 3.6-kW of power. This is enough to power electric devices such as a treadmill, not an entire house. Atop the 5 is a solar roof, similar to that on the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.
Inside the 2022 Ioniq 5 it's exceedingly modern, with dual 12-inch screens stretching from the driver to the middle of the vehicle and an augmented reality head-up display that shows navigation (and more) on the windshield. Even more, the SUV has reclining front seats with leg rests, a sliding center console, and eco-friendly materials. Keeping passengers safe is Highway Driving Assist 2, which can automatically change lanes if the turn signal is engaged, among other features.
The 2022 Ioniq 5 is the first of Hyundai's new Ioniq electric vehicle lineup, and will be followed by a sedan in 2022 and an SUV in 2024. The Ioniq 5 is scheduled to go on sale in the U.S in fall 2021.
