2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Review
The world is moving toward cleaner energy, and our vehicles reflect this transition. Hyundai has joined this trend and is producing electric vehicles (EVs) to compete in an ever-evolving market.
Unlike some uninspiring EV designs on the market, Hyundai has created the Ioniq 5, which is nothing close to boring.
The new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 is the South Korean company’s debut and flagship all-electric vehicle. The stunning Ioniq is the first of the new standard in EVs by the company.
It comes with an all-electric powertrain with a range of different power outputs and a rear-mounted electric motor. The standard 58 kilowatt hour (kWh) lithium-polymer battery produces 168 horsepower.
The top-spec all-wheel-drive (AWD) Ioniq 5 has a 239kW electric motor and a 77kWh lithium-polymer battery, and these combine to produce 320 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque. This vehicle will go from zero to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds, and it will take you 488 km to drain its fully charged battery.
Hyundai upped the game further with its exceptionally fast-charging capabilities. Using the 350 kW DC ultra-rapid charger, you can get 80% battery power in 18 minutes. A five-minute charge will give you a 100 km range using the same charger.
Hyundai took its time designing the Ioniq 5’s exterior, and it was worth every second put in. It’s a beautifully sculptured vehicle with sharp lines and flush door handles that improve the car’s aerodynamics.
The Ioniq 5 has a signature pixel design to its premier LED headlights that come standard on all the trims. These add to the modern look, and the rear parametric LED lights were designed for maximum brightness and safety.
The Ioniq 5 has a spacious and comfortable interior packed with eco-friendly materials. It has a completely flat floor which creates more legroom for the back-seat passengers and your cargo.
Relax, while your car is charging, in the front seats, which recline electronically and come with footrests for extra comfort. The front and rear seats are heated, and the sunroof opens up to give you a clear view of the stars or a chance to catch some rays.
The centre cupholder console is adjustable and, when pushed back fully, allows you to walk through the car.
Technology and Safety Features
The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 has neat features that rival some of the most luxurious brands.
