The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 ultra-fast charging crossover utility vehicle was revealed yesterday, highlighting its Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP).

Ioniq 5’s 300-mile range, and 10-to-80 percent ultra-fast charging in 18 minutes showcases E-GMP technology.

Outside, the ’45’ EV concept influenced the Ioniq 5’s design, while the chassis design adds more interior space.

Ioniq 5 has the longest wheelbase in Hyundai’s U.S. product lineup at 118.1 inches.

Introducing 23 battery electric vehicles (BEV) by 2025, Hyundai expects sales of 1 million units.

“Ioniq 5 introduces the Hyundai brand to a whole new set of buyers,” said José Muñoz, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America.

“Once behind the steering wheel, the range, power, comfort, interior space and advanced technology are shocking.”

“Owning one is going to be a new experience and lifestyle that only the Ioniq brand can provide.”

Six Ioniq 5-exclusive exterior colors, include Phantom Black Pearl, Cyber Gray Metallic, Atlas White, Digital Teal, Lucid Blue Pearl, and Shooting Star Gray Matte.

Obsidian Black Monotone, Dark Pebble Gray/Dove Gray, and Dark Teal/Dove Gray are the interior color choices.

Three drive motor arrangements exist. There’s a 77.4 kWh battery pack with to two electric motors, a single rear motor, or front and rear motors.

The all-wheel drive (AWD) dual motor combo produces 320 horsepower (74 kW front + 165 kW rear) and 446 ft-lbs of torque. With AWD, the Ioniq 5 will do 0-60 MPH in under 5 seconds.

The 2WD single rear motor makes 225 HP (168 kW) and 258 ft-lbs of torque. With a single motor, 300 miles is the targeted driving range. The AWD dual motor setup has a 269-mile targeted range, and the Limited AWD model has a 244-mile range. Top speed is 115 MPH for all Ioniqs, and they have a trailer towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.

With a 350-kW charger, Ioniq 5 can go from 10-80 percent in 18 minutes. If there’s only five minutes to recharge, the Ioniq 5 can recoup 68 miles of range using a fast charger.

Hyundai took the opportunity to announce an agreement with Electrify America to provide Hyundai Ioniq 5 drivers with two years of unlimited, 30-minute charging sessions at Electrify America charging stations.

This announcement is a continuation of an agreement to provide 250 kilowatt-hours of complimentary charging on Electrify America’s network for 2021 Kona Electric and Ioniq Electric owners.

Ioniq 5 goes on sale this fall, with undisclosed benefits for early adopters.

    Looks cool, like KIA built a Golf GTi

    The future of EV's is exciting to say the least. The future of the electric grid, not so much. Until I'm more confident that the grid can handle this infusion of EV's and home heat pumps, I'll stick with a gas car.

  • Dukeisduke "Gouging" - lol. California's gas prices are driven by a combination of the highest state gasoline tax in the US (66.98 cents per gallon) and the CARB-mandated California-only boutique fuel blends.
  • Astigmatism Honestly I'm surprised it's not higher. My parents bought two garage spots in Boston for $250k in the 1980s. When I worked in midtown a decade ago, garage spots near my building rented for $500 a month, which would support a $125k mortgage.Places get expensive when lots of people want to live there.
  • 28-Cars-Later As much as the Orwellian nature concerns me I must say to "add a turbo" as it were to net roughly 20% more bhp for $1,195 doesn't sound too bad. In days of old the V6 -> V8 upgrade was upwards of 20-30% of the base model cost.
  • Nivya Typical Manhattan parking spot price usually ranges anywhere between $15 to $75 for two hours. However, there are plenty of alternative parking options that provide even cheaper rates.
  • Analoggrotto Ironic from the brand that has offered a grand total of 5 vehicles with 3 pedals.
