1. Hyundai has released 5 videos and 3 images teasing the production-intent Ioniq 5 EV.
2. It can serve as a 3.5 kW generator and has the ability to charge extraordinarily fast.
3. The 2022 Ioniq 5 will be unveiled this February.
Hyundai has teased the Ioniq 5, this time in production form. While not too many specifications were released, the South Korean automaker did exhibit the Ioniq 5's Vehicle to Load power supply, and provided details about its design. Hyundai also detailed the EV's extremely fast charging capability.
Late last year, the Ioniq 5's specs were leaked, uncovering its 313 horsepower all-wheel drive layout. Also leaked was its battery options, a standard 58-kWh pack or an optional 73-kWh battery with more range. Hyundai has, however, confirmed that the Ioniq 5 will be built on the E-GMP platform that was also displayed last year and that it'll ride on 20-inch Aero-optimized wheels.
Hyundai has revealed that the Ioniq 5 can be used as a generator, and proved it in the provided videos, where the vehicle powered a large oven cooking a turkey, high-end audio speakers, and even a treadmill with its 3.5 kW Vehicle to Load technology. Also shown in these videos was the Ioniq 5's fast charging capability, which allows the vehicle to refill 62 miles of range in just 5 minutes.
The 2022 Ioniq 5 will make its debut in February, and should join a large suite of Ioniq-brand vehicles by 2025.
