Hyunadai IONIQ5 EV to start at £37,000


Hyundai has announced the pricing and specification of its new IONIQ 5 EV, the first car in its new IONIQ brand and the first built on Electric-Global Modular Platform.

E-GMP provides IONIQ 5 with different powertrain options, with customers having the choice of battery and drive types; a 58kWh rear-wheel drive with a combined range of up to 240 miles, a 73kWh rear-wheel drive with a combined range of up to 300 miles, or a 73kWh all-wheel drive with a range of up to 287 miles.

The IONIQ 5 features 800V charging as standard, which when combined with a 350kW ultra-rapid charger will provide 80% charge in just 18 minutes and 100km of driving range in 5 minutes. The system also supports both domestic wall box charging and mainstream public 400V high-speed charging, using the motor and the inverter to convert the voltage from 400V to 800V for optimised charge times whenever possible.

IONIQ 5 will be available in 3 specification levels – SE Connect, Premium, Ultimate – which join the comprehensively equipped special launch edition Project 45. Prices start from £36,995 for the IONIQ 5 SE Connect 58 kWh rear-wheel drive.
