The 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 will be able to travel up to 488 kilometers
Depending on its technical configuration, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 2022 will be able to travel between 354 and 488 kilometers on one charge. We are therefore almost exactly on the figures predicted by Hyundai.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reveals the expected autonomy based on the results of its tests on the Hyundai IONIQ 5 2022. Most likely due to its aerodynamics, it ends up behind the 499 kilometers of its twin, the Kia EV6.
354 base kilometers
The Kia EV6 will not be entitled to the version with the lowest range with the 58 kilowatt-hour battery, but the IONIQ 5 will. In this case, we are considerably expanding the technical offers. For the two basic versions Essential and Preferred with rear-wheel drive, we are talking about a range of 354 kilometers, the exact figure predicted by Hyundai several months ago. These versions offer a power of 168 kilowatts (225 horsepower) and a torque of 258 pound-feet thanks to a single engine placed on the rear axle. They are therefore strict propulsions. Their base price is $ 44,999 and $ 46,999, an amount to which must be added transport and preparation in addition to other applicable taxes.
When you keep a single motor and opt for the larger 77.4 kilowatt-hour battery, you get the most range. Hyundai was hoping for 480 kilometers, but the EPA estimates the range at 488 kilometers. It is therefore a slight gain for this version. This configuration is only offered on one version, the Preferred extended range. Its price is $ 51,999, an amount to which must be added transport and preparation in addition to other applicable taxes.
The full cost a few kilometers
The versions which should be the most popular in Canada are the models with two electric motors, therefore with all-wheel drive. We’re talking about a combined output of 239 kilowatts (320 hp) and a torque of 446 pound-feet. Even if you automatically enjoy the 77.4 kilowatt-hour battery, you have to make a concession on range due to the higher power consumption. The result is a range of 412 kilometers, 3 less than Hyundai’s initial estimate. The buyer can always find a consolation in the acceleration which will be around 5 seconds. The base price to access the complete is $ 54,999, an amount to which must be added transport and preparation in addition to other applicable taxes.
109 kilometers in 5 minutes
Hyundai has worked particularly hard to ensure that charging technologies are at the cutting edge. Thanks to its charging capacity of up to 350 kilowatts, the IONIQ 5 will be able to increase the range from 10 to 80% in just 18 minutes. According to Hyundai engineers, it will even be possible to recover up to 109 kilometers in 5 minutes under optimal conditions. The 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 will arrive in dealerships in the coming weeks.
