The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a battery-electric compact crossover SUV manufactured and marketed by the South Korean car manufacturer Hyundai from March 2021 until now. Hyundai's Ioniq sub-brand and the Hyundai Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) are the first to be utilized for advertising this vehicle. Hyundai revealed the model on February 23, 2021.
History of the Hyundai Ioniq 5
With a CUV-like look and a magnificent design, Hyundai unveiled the second generation of electric Ioniq 5 vehicles at the start of 2021. The design was shown off at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019 with the Hyundai 45 EV Concept. The wheels, headlights, and taillights employ the Parametric Pixel design in the show car and the Hyundai Pony production model. The Ioniq 5 was inspired by Hyundai's 45-year-old electric vehicle design research. Developed on the E-GMP platform, it had a larger wheelbase and a much more powerful look. The sci-fi design and angular-sculptured body panels laid the groundwork for a brand new design aesthetic for a Korean carmaker. The 2021 Ioniq 5 was available with two power choices from the manufacturer. One or two motors are options for customers (one on each axle). It was also possible to choose from a variety of battery alternatives. Other key breakthroughs were high voltage and high power charging points of up to 800 volts.
Hyundai retails the Ioniq 5 model with a starting price of $41,245 for the SE Standard Range (base) model and goes up to higher prices, depending on the trim level.
- SE Long Range - $45,295
- SEL Long Range - $47,545
- SE Long Range AWD - $48,395
- SEL Long Range AWD - $50,645
- Limited Long Range - $52,395
- Limited Long Range AWD - $55,745
Interior Features of the Hyundai Ioniq 5
The Ioniq 5's cabin isn't as artistic as the one shown off by the Hyundai 45 Concept, but it does have a digital dashboard and plenty of environmentally friendly materials. Just one innovative feature is a head-up display (HUD) that uses augmented reality to show navigation instructions onto the windshield. The all-electric design of the small crossover also benefits the vehicle's optimum passenger and cargo capacity, which has a flat floor. While the Ioniq charges, passengers may recline the front seats and use the footrests. A larger wheelbase than the three-row Palisade, the 5 provides passenger capacity in both the front and back seats. There's a lot of storage capacity in the vast center console that moves back and forth between the front seats in the Limited grades.
Exterior Features of the Hyundai Ioniq 5
This is one of those rare cases when a concept car presented at the 2019 Frankfurt Auto Show (the Hyundai 45) is based on the production version. However, the lack of rear-facing cameras is more than tolerable, given that it has traditional side mirrors. Furthermore, the Ioniq 5's general design is sleek and fascinating at the same time. Design cues came from Hyundai's first mass-produced automobile, the Pony. For the 20-inch alloy wheels, the simple yet unique bodywork is complemented with a more intricate Parametric Pixel design. A retro-cool 1980s vibe is evoked by Ioniq 5's exterior lighting, which features LED pixel lights. A clamshell hood reduces panel gaps and provides the best aerodynamic performance possible. There are nine exterior paint colors to choose from when purchasing a home. Hyundai claims that five of these are unique to the Ioniq 5 and were inspired by nature.
