Isn't It Ioniq: Hyundai Unveils All-New 2022 Ioniq 5 All-Electric Crossover
Hyundai's latest addition to its electric vehicle (EV) range will compete in the midsize electric crossover SUV (CUV) segment.
Hyundai has been selling its Ioniq line of alternatively-fueled vehicles for almost for years now, and the Brand has just unveiled its latest addition to the Ioniq lineup: the Ioniq 5. As a midsize all-electric crossover SUV (CUV), the all-new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 will take on other electric CUV's in its class, such as the Chevrolet (Chevy) Bolt EUV, the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the Tesla Model Y, and the Volkswagen (VW) iD.4. Featuring sleek exterior styling and a simplistic (yet well-equipped) interior, the Ioniq 5 will be the most versatile Hyundai Ioniq model yet. Read on to find out more about the all-new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5. NOTE: Any and all pricing discussed in this article includes a mandatory destination fee, but does NOT include any applicable taxes, or other fees.
Starting with the all-new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5's exterior design, the all-new electric CUV takes styling takes a more traditional approach, with semi-rectangular LED quad front headlamps, and a rectangular front "grille". Moving to the side of the Ioniq 5, you might just mistake it for one of Audi's small CUV's, as it features similar styling to vehicles such as the Q3 and Q5. The rear of the vehicle echoes the styling language of the Ioniq 5's front end, with rectangular LED rear tail lamps, and an 'IONIQ' logo bar connecting them. The wheels feature a "turbine" design, and aim to improve vehicle aerodynamics. Overall, the all-new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 has a very innovative exterior design.
Moving into the interior of the all-new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5, you're greeted by two large LCD displays: one NON-touchscreen unit for the instrument cluster (which is reconfigurable), and one touchscreen for the infotainment system. The two LCD screens are enclosed in a single bezel atop the Ioniq 5's dashboard, much like the all-new 2021 Hyundai Elantra compact sedan. There is a set of redundant controls below the infotainment system's touchscreen for control of the infotainment and climate control systems. The front bucket seats are able to recline, and the front passenger seat features a footrest for increased comfort while stopped. There's also a full panoramic moonroof, and the entire interior looks open and airy with its light color scheme.
While the all-new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 may be a stylish vehicle, it still includes the latest safety features, such as blind spot warning, forward collision assist, a blind spot view monitor, Safe Exit Assist (SEA), and the Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA) first introduced on the all-new 2020 Hyundai Sonata midsize sedan. The vehicle also includes both perpendicular and parallel parking assistance. There's also an Augmented Reality (AR) Heads-Up Display (HUD) that projects selected information in the driver's line of sight in the front windshield, and Highway Driving Assistant is also included as well.
The all-new Hyundai Ioniq 5, like its competitors, will offer both Front Wheel Drive (FWD) and All Wheel Drive (AWD), and the range-topping dual-motor option boasts a 72.6 kW battery, and an output of 225 kWh and 605 Nm of torque. This allows the Ioniq 5 to sprint from 0 MPH to 60 MPH (0-60 Time) in just 5.2 seconds. With AWD, the Ioniq 5 still impresses with a 0-60 Time of just 6.1 seconds, when it's paired with the 58 kW battery. Even the "base" FWD single-motor option still achieves impressive numbers, with 350 Nm of torque. With the 72.6 kW battery option, the single-motor FWD Ioniq 5 can still achieve a 0-60 Time of 7.4 seconds, and with the "base" 58 kW battery, the 0-60 Time is 8.5 seconds. What's more, when equipped with the dual-motor option, the Ioniq 5 can tow a total trailer weight of around 3,500 lbs., which is impressive for the class.
While Hyundai has yet to announce pricing for the all-new 2022 Ioniq 5, we expect pricing to be similar to other vehicles (such as the Chevrolet (Chevy) Bolt EUV, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Tesla Model Y, and Volkswagen (VW) iD.4), with pricing starting at around $35,000, and climbing to $50,000 for a fully-loaded model.
