Hyundai has released revealing pictures of the upcoming IONIQ 5.

Previewed by the 45 concept, the production model will be introduced next month and become the first electric vehicle based on the new E-GMP architecture.

As you can see, the IONIQ 5 will have a distinctive design which looks unlike anything else in Hyundai’s lineup. This wasn’t a fluke as the company suggested we can expect a “fundamental shift” in the design of EVs going forward.

While the company is keeping details under wraps, the crossover features pixel-inspired headlights which are “suggestive of the digital technology within.” Hyundai also said the model will be their first to feature a clamshell hood that spans the entire width of the car, “thus minimizing panel gaps and creating a clean and high-tech overall look.”

Elsewhere, there’s a fully enclosed grille and digital side mirrors. We can also see contrasting body cladding, slender taillights and aerodynamically optimized wheels that measure up to 20 inches.

While Hyundai is playing coy on details, the company released a handful of teaser videos which highlight the crossover’s capability. Three clips promote its Vehicle to Load technology, which enables the IONIQ 5 to function as a 110/220V power supply. This will enable owners to power everything from an oven to a treadmill, even in the middle of nowhere.

The fourth video takes a different approach and it highlights the IONIQ 5’s “ultra-fast” charging capability. In particular, a five minute charge can enable the crossover to travel more than 62 miles (100 km) in the WLTP cycle.

That isn’t much to go on, but Hyundai Austria accidently posted some performance specs last year. Assuming those numbers are correct, we expect all-wheel drive as well as a combined output of 309 hp (230 kW / 313 PS). This will reportedly enable the crossover to run from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 5.2 seconds.

There’s no word on the battery capacity at this point, but the model is slated to have a WLTP range of approximately 280 miles (450 km). That’s not too shabby and a solar roof will reportedly help to charge the batteries when the crossover is parked.

Looks very smart. I expect vehicle to load to be an expensive option and the car overall to be around the £35-40k mark

It will have 58 kWh battery with a range of 450 km (280 mi) and 73 kWh battery with 550 km (342 mi) range: Hyundai Ioniq 5 To Offer 280 And 342 Miles Of WLTP Range

This means very low consumption considering that it has quite large body and 4WD. Based on these numbers it should be more economical than Kona EV - Kona has 13.22 kWh/100 km consumption based on WLTP range of 484 km and IONIQ 5 should have 12.88 kWh/100 km for the 58 kWh option or 13.27 kWh/100 km for the 73 kWh option.

This low consumption sounds unbelievable. The upcoming Nissan Ariya which seems to be a direct competitor? has consumption in the range of 18.5-22 kWh/100 km depending on battery and power options with 4WD. Even the Nissan's consumption would be on the low side compared to I-Pace, e-Tron etc. So the real-world range and consumption of the IONIQ 5 would be really interesting to find out. The Koreans have been very efficient so far so I am hopeful we see another efficency king coming in a new segment. I just can't understand why other makes can't do it besides Tesla?

I think given what the Kona costs (and the fact that this is more Tucson sized) it’s going to be £40-£55K. This is a Tesla competitor. They’re not dropping the Ioniq or the Kona at the moment so this is coming in above them. It’s faster, more efficient, bigger battery, more range, all wheel drive. This is going to be a lot more than £35-£40K sadly.

Yes, the Austrian website leak said RWD and All Wheel Drive. The initial First Edition cars have been confirmed to the Austrian customers as the big battery (70kWh+), all wheel drive 313PS with every option fitted. Should be good!

With VW (generally considered a more premium brand then Hyundai) revealing that the ID4 will be priced from £37,800 for the larger battery version and with decent discounts seen on the ID3, I wonder where Hyundai will price the Ioniq 5? Certainly no reason for the larger battery 2wd version to be at or above this level if they want to sell decent numbers of them. Could we start to see more competitive pricing from manufacturers as they battle to offset fossil emmisions.

Hyundai produced 70,000 EV last year out of 1.6 million cars, Tesla did 500,000.
They need to get significant production out soon, have they resolved the battery supply issues for 500,000 cars per year soon?

Fair point and to compare apples with apples the iD4 we're seeing at launch that costs £37,500 is the 52kWh battery 204PS version and the 204PS 72kWh version doesn't have a price yet. The 313PS AWD Ioniq 5 competitor iD4 GTX (the 306PS AWD model) will almost certainly be £45-50,000 when it launches.

First edition ID4 is the 77kWh (net) battery according to the configurator



1st Edition
Pro Performance 204PS 77kWh (Net) battery; with 310 mile range (combined WLTP) and 18.0kWh/62 miles
I think I see the confusion. That car actually costs £40,800. It's only £37,800 after the plug-in grant. The actual £37,500 (£34,500 after grant) is the smaller battery one. And I believe that one may not even be the 204PS RWD car, it might be only 177PS RWD.

18kW/100km is only 3.5 miles per kW. Which does not compute to 310 miles with a 77kWh battery. More like 270 miles of range. I don't know if the error is in my calculations or yours or if infamously mendacious VW have just used 'interesting' numbers in their claims but the numbers don't seem to stack up somewhere.

So back to the Ioniq 5, I think the 2wd version with 73kwh battery should be definitely priced under that of the ID4 77kwh version i.e. Less than £37,800 (after plug in grant taken off😉). The base model 58kwh should be sub £35k after grant. 4wd variants will probably be around £40k (after grant) and up depending on the trim levels.

But that's the same price as a current Kona. For a bigger, nicer, newer, more efficient car. I'd be delighted to be wrong, but I just don't see it.

I think that anything lower than 40k is wishful thinking.
With the range, rumoured specs like a solar roof and camera wing-mirrors, and general premium positioning I wouldn't expect much change out of 47-50k

They won't sell any over 40k, unless it's very, very good.
Ergo price of Kona will have to come down.
In turn every other EV.
Could be the start of lower pricing generally.
They're selling every Kona they can build at the moment. And they're not dropping the prices on those. This is a car that can outperform an Audi RS3 (£50K). It's not only going to sell at over £40K, it's going to sell well.

I have to agree. And apparently there is an even swankier Genesis version for more money (that no-one will buy).
