Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric SUV finally sheds the veils to show off its good looks. Also, it can reach the 100 kmph mark quite fast. Read the complete report here.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is the company’s pure electric car, which has been recently revealed by the carmaker. It is the first car under the company’s new Ioniq electric sub-brand. The Ioniq 5 is built on the company’s dedicated BEV architecture called as Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). This platform will also underpin Hyundai’s Ioniq 6 sedan and Ioniq 7 SUV. The Korean automakers' E-GMP platform allows Ioniq to offer a modern cabin, strong performance with ultra-fast charging and some latest connectivity features. The upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 5 crossover will be offered in two battery sizes - 72.6 kWh and 58 kWh. Both come with rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive configurations.
The 76.2 kWh battery version is claimed to offer a maximum range of 480 km. The upcoming Hyundai electric crossover will support an 800V battery, which offers ultra-rapid charging. It is compatible with up to 220 kWh DC charging, which allows the battery to charge from 10 to 80 per cent in just 18 minutes. The top-of-the-line Ioniq 5 crossover gets a dual-motor, AWD layout, which is capable of shredding out 306 Bhp of peak power and 605 Nm of torque. It is claimed to sprint from 0-100 kmph in just 5.2 seconds and can touch a top speed of 185kmph. The entry-level model, which is powered by a 58 kWh battery develops 169 Bhp of power output. The rear-wheel-drive trim of the EV does a 0-100 kmph sprint in just 8.5 seconds.
In terms of dimension, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 measures 4,635 mm in length, 1,890 mm in width, 1,605 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 3,000 mm. Moreover, it offers 531 litres of boot space, which can be extended up to 1,591 litres by folding down the second-row seats. The all-new Hyundai EV comes loaded with features like a 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system, electrically-adjustable front seats, 12-inch fully-digital instrument cluster, advanced head-up display, Bluelink connected car technology, and a wireless phone charging pad. Right now, Kona is the only electric car offered by Hyundai in the Indian market. But if the Ioniq 5 will make its way to the Indian showroom floor or not, it still remains a question unanswered.
