Hyundai has confirmed the new Ioniq 5 electric hatchback will be priced from £36,995 when it goes on sale later this year.
It's the first model of a new sub-brand dedicated to electric vehicles (EVs).
The car is built on Hyundai’s dedicated battery electric vehicle (BEV) architecture called Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) and is available with a range of electric power configurations.
Company car drivers and fleets can select from three battery and drive types; a 58kWh rear wheel drive with a range of up to 240 miles, a 73kWh rear wheel drive with a range of up to 300 miles, or a 73kWh all-wheel drive with a range of up to 287 miles.
The Ioniq 5 will be offered in three trim levels: SE Connect, Premium and Ultimate. There is also an Edition 45 limited edition version.
Starting at £36,995, the SE Connect (58kWh rear wheel drive only) includes 19-inch alloy wheels, a 12.3-inch infotainment system with satnav, wireless phone charging, rear view camera, LED headlamps, rear parking sensors and adaptive cruise control.
The Premium trim adds a four-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats and steering wheel, auto dimming rear view mirror, power tailgate. It also offers customers the optional Vehicle 2 Load pack (V2L). The V2L function allows users to freely use or charge any electric devices, suppling up to 3.6kW of power. Using a converter, customers can charge high-power electric equipment, consumer electronics or even charge another electric vehicle.
Range-topping Ultimate models features leather seat coverings, solar and privacy glass, electrically adjustable and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, Bose sound system and head up display with augmented reality. Customers can also specify the Eco Pack which comprises Battery Heating system and Heat Pump.
With a 350-kW charger, the Ioniq 5 can charge from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes and drivers only need to charge the vehicle for five minutes to get 60 miles of range, according to WLTP.
Its exterior design is characterised by the Pony-inspired profile over a 3,000-mm wheelbase. The front of the car is equipped with Hyundai’s first clamshell hood that minimizes panel gaps for optimal aerodynamics, while the front bumper is defined by a V-shape incorporating daytime running lights. These small pixel-like clusters also appear at the rear of the vehicle.
On the sides, auto flush door handles provide clean surface styling and enhanced aerodynamic efficiency.
Aero-optimized wheels are offered in a super-sized 20-inch diameter, the largest rims ever fitted to a Hyundai EV.
Inside, the Ioniq 5 integrates advanced technologies for an enhanced digital user experience. The wide, configurable, dual cockpit features a 12-inch, full-touch infotainment screen and hoodless 12-inch digital gauge cluster.
For the first time in Hyundai, the Ioniq 5 features an augmented reality head-up display, essentially turning the windshield into a display screen.
It is also equipped with the next level of Hyundai SmartSense, advanced driver assistance system. It is the first Hyundai model to offer Highway Driving Assist 2. Other driving assistance systems include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Intelligent Speed Limit Assist, Driver Attention Warning and High Beam Assist.
