The start of anything is always a challenge, so it comes as no surprise that a company that has been disruptive from the start with extreme auto warranties decides to not hold back when it comes to the next technology change in the auto industry. Hyundai has released full details of their all-new IONIQ 5 BEV CUV with the goal of disrupting the industry from the start of what people expect from an electric auto.
Today many talk about re-charging times and range as the two biggest concerns with electrification of auto's. Hyundai has chosen to disrupt the EV market by not only ensuring that there is plenty of range in their first EV auto but also ensuring you have ultra-fast charging and vehicle-to-load power capability to name a few. Let's look at the list of features the IONIQ 5 will have as it goes on sale later this year for 2021 starting in a total of 15 states California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, (10 ZEV states), plus Texas, Florida, Illinois, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Arizona, with a broad national rollout for sale in 2022.
Ioniq 5 details list:

Hyundai president and CEO of Hyundai America states the following: “Once behind the steering wheel, they are going to be shocked by the range, power, comfort, interior space and advanced technology. Owning one is going to be a new experience and lifestyle that only the IONIQ brand can provide.”
Hyundai believes that the IONIQ 5 while being sleek and sophisticated is their first auto that connects the past, present and future. From the flush door handles and clean flowing surface of the outside of the auto to the ease of use and open interior. Merging form and function together is part of the Hyundai's Parametric Dynamic design.
At launch customers will have six exterior colors to choose from, this includes five nature-inspired hues exclusive to the Ioniq 5. Color choices are Phantom Black Pearl, Cyber Gray Metallic, Atlas White, Digital Teal (Green Pearl), Lucid Blue Pearl, Shooting Star (Grey Matte). Interior will have three color options, Obsidian Black Monotone, Dark Pebble Gray/Dove Gray, and Dark Teal / Dove Gray.
Choice is an important part of the Ioniq 5 launch and while North America will have the single standard 77.4 kWh battery pack, this will be mated to either the AWD setup that combines a 74 kW front motor with a 165 kW rear motor for a total of 320 hp and 446 ft-lbs of torque. In RWD configuration you will have 225 HP and 258 lb-ft of torque.
Single motor will have the targeted 300 miles on a full charge and AWD is targeted at 269 miles for SE & SEL models with 244 miles for the top-of-th-line Limited edition. All configurations will have a top speed of 115 MPH with a towing capacity of 1,500 lbs.
The IONIQ 5 holds nothing back as it will support both 400-V and 800-V charging infrastructures. The platform is a standard 800-V capable system that can also accommodate the 400-V chargers without a need for additional components / adapters. Hyundai is proud to have the worlds first patented multi-charging system that operates the motor and inverter to boost between 400-V and 800-V chargers.
IONIQ 5 using a 350-kW charger can charger the battery pack from 10% to 80% in 18 minutes. Even if the owner only has a few minutes to spare, the 350-kW 800-V chargers can quickly add 68 miles of range fast. The standard 10.9 kW on-board charger completes a full charge in 6hrs and 43 minutes using a home Level 2 charger.

Makes from tailgating to parties and even camping outside with a peak 1.9 kW 120V outlet using the available adapter. You also on the Limited trim have underneath the back seat a second outlet to be used inside the auto.
Passenger space and cargo space are always important items and with that in mind the Ioniq 5 shows just how big this little EV is. Measuring in at 182.5 inches in overall length makes it 14 inches shorter than the Hyndai Palisade midsize CUV and yet the wheelbase is 118.1 inches long which is 4 inches longer than the Palisade CUV. With a 74.4 inche width and 63 inch height, the IONIQ 5 offers large-car-like interior space in a compact CUV form. Allowing true relaxation in your auto.
Hyundai's E_GMP platform was developed with interior space in mind. A nearly flat floor allows for maximum passenger and cargo space. The IONIQ 5 has 106.5 cubic ft of space compared to the Ford Mach-e @ 101.1 cubic feet or the VW ID.4 @ 99.9 cubic feet.
IONIQ 5 provides 27.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 2nd row seat but increases to 59.3 cubic feet when you fold down flat the second row of seats.
The IONIQ 5 offers Hyundai's Premium Head-up display with Augmented Reality (AR) technology. Drivers have a choice of relevant information that they wish to display on the windshield.
This choice of display options expands to the dashboard allowing you to customize the various information to display. The wide, configurable dual cockpit features 12 inch, full touch infotainment screen and hoodless digital gauge that is customizable to meet the owners needs. Apple Carplay and Android Auto are standard and work via bluetooth multi-connection support so two devices can be paired at the same time for phone calls to streaming audio. The navigation system comes with 3 years of Bluelink infotainment / map updates.
Safety has never been better as the IONIQ 5 is equipped with the next level of Hyundai SmartSense, advanced driver assistance systems offering the highest levels of safety and convenience. IONIQ 5 is the first Hyundai model to offer Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA2). The HDA2 system maintains a set distance and speed from the vehicle ahead when driving on highways while keeping the IONIQ 5 centered in the lane, even around curves by controlling the steering wheel. The system actively responds to close-range low-speed cut-ins by other drivers and automatically assist lane changes. Smart Cruise Control (SCC) has machine learning to mimic the drivers unique tendencies for acceleration and spacing with vehicles ahead. There is also Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) which can detect other vehicles, pedestrians or cyclist to help avoid a collision.
IONIQ 5 also comes with other semi-autonomous driving features such as ISLA or Intelligent Speed LImit Assist which adjusted vehicle speed to match posted speed limits and HBA or High Beam Assist which automatically turns on and off high beams while driving for optimized visibility.
A slew of other driver attention related functions also will be standard such as BCA or Blind-spot Collision-Avoidance Assist. BVM or Blind-spot View Monitor which during a driver indicated lane change will show you both left and right sides of the auto on the cluster screen.
Parking also is now enhanced with the RSPA or Remote Smart Parking Assist. RSPA allows the driver to remotely park or exit a parking spot from outside the vehicle. This feature works for both parallel and perpendicular parking and can be activated via a button on the vehicles smart key.
IONIQ 5 also has SVM or surround view monitoring using 360-degree viewing cameras on the auto to check everything before you move. PSA or Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist system helps you when backing up so as to not hit others.
