Hyundai Motor Company has this week launched the IONIQ 5 midsize electric SUV during a virtual world premiere event.
The IONIQ 5 features a progressive design inside and out, as the manufacturer looks toward the future of EVs. IONIQ 5 is built upon Hyundai Motor Group’s dedicated BEV architecture called Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), enabling strong performance, ultra-fast charging, advanced connectivity and driver assistance features that will offer the ultimate in-car experience while ensuring safety.
“IONIQ 5 will accommodate lifestyles without limits, proactively caring for customers’ needs throughout their journey,” said Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President and Global Chief Marketing Officer.
“It is truly the first electric vehicle to provide a new experience with its innovative use of interior space and advanced technologies.”
IONIQ 5 is available with a range of power electric (PE) configurations to fit the mobility needs of every customer, with no compromises on performance. Customers can select from two battery pack options, either 58 kWh or 72.6 kWh, and two electric motor layouts, either with a rear motor only or with both front and rear motors.
When equipped with two-wheel drive (2WD) and 72.6 kWh battery, IONIQ 5’s maximum driving range on a single charge will be around 470-480 km, according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) standard.
With a 350 kW charger, IONIQ 5 can charge from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 18 minutes. IONIQ 5 users only need to charge the vehicle for five minutes to get 100 km of range, according to WLTP.
The IONIQ 5 is also equipped with the next level of Hyundai SmartSense, advanced driver assistance system, ensuring the highest levels of safety and convenience on the road. Other safety features included are as follows:
- Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA 2)

- Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA)
- Driver Attention Warning (DAW)
