Korean car manufacturer Hyundai announced the IONIQ 5 today as promised.

The IONIQ 5 is an electric crossover with an angular design that is built on the E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform). The novelty received a wheelbase of 3000 mm, 20-inch wheels, all kinds of assistants, as well as a futuristic interior, which is made from recycled and environmentally friendly materials.

The IONIQ 5 will be sold with rear or front wheel drive, as well as 58 kWh (Standard Range) and 72.6 kWh (Long Range) batteries. The basic version of a car with rear-wheel drive has modest characteristics: power 125 kW, torque 350 Nm and acceleration to “hundreds” in 8.5 seconds. The all-wheel drive model, in turn, received a total engine power of 173 kW, a torque of 605 Nm and acceleration to 100 km / h in 6.1 seconds. The manufacturer does not report the range of the Standard Range battery, but presumably, we are talking about 350-400 km.

If we talk about a complete set of IONIQ 5 with a Long Range battery, then the specifications are already more interesting. The four-wheel drive car received a power of 225 kW (605 Nm). Thanks to this, the car accelerates to 100 km / h in just 5.2 seconds. The declared cruising range of this configuration is 480 km (according to the WLTP cycle).

IONIQ 5 features fast charging. For example, using a 350 kW station, an electric car can charge from 10% to 80% in 18 minutes. In addition, 5 minutes of charging will add up to 100 km of range. The novelty also received support for the Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) reversible charging technology with a power of 3.6 watts. That is, the IONIQ 5 can power electrical devices. For this, the cars have two sockets: one on the body, and the other in the cabin.

Hyundai IONIQ 5 sales will begin in Europe in the first half of 2021. They will ask for a car from 41,900 euros. When the new product arrives at us, there is no information yet.
