The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a new all-electric compact crossover with innovative technology, futuristic appearance, and a versatile interior.
The IONIQ 5 Hyundai was triple-crowned in 2022 World Car Awards, as World Car of the Year, World Electric Vehicle of the Year, and World Car Design of the Year.
It offers an estimated driving range of up to 303 miles and excellent charging speeds (up to 350 kW). The EV ute has a power range of 168 to 320 hp.
Hyundai's all-new, all-electric Ioniq subbrand, which the firm claims will usher in 23 battery-electric vehicles by 2025, makes its premiere with the Ioniq 5.
The 2022 Ioniq 5 with the standard-range battery and rear-wheel drive will cost around $40,000, but it won't be available when the Ioniq 5 is released.
The SEL AWD with the 320-hp dual-motor configuration is our pick; it also has a larger battery pack and a stated 256-mile driving range.
The standard-range battery of Ioniq 5 produces 168 horsepower when combined with a single rear-mounted electric motor.
The rear-drive option provides 225 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque with the longer-range battery, which Hyundai claims will propel the Ioniq 5 to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds.
The all-wheel-drive variant is significantly more powerful, with 320 horsepower and a huge 446 pound-feet of torque, and also much faster. At our test track, it hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
Ioniq 5 range The Ioniq 5 is expected to have a range of 220 miles with the basic 58.0-kWh battery pack.
When hooked into a DC fast charger, Hyundai claims the larger battery can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in approximately 18 minutes or added 68 miles in about five minutes.
