NEXT STAGE: New in 2021
The midsize crossover from Hyundai’s dedicated EV brand joins a growing host of competitors, especially with offerings in the hot-selling utility vehicle segment. The wheelbase is actually longer than Hyundai's flagship Palisade crossover. Under the clamshell hood is a new all-electric powertrain built around two battery options: a long-range 77.4-kilowatt-hour battery and a standard 58-kilowatt-hour battery. The all-wheel layout gets a motor in the front and rear for combined output as high as 225 kilowatts; the two-wheel has only the rear motor, with output of either 160 kilowatts or 125 kilowatts, depending on the battery. The Ioniq 5's large-battery, single-motor version tops the rest, providing up to 298 miles on a full charge. The Ioniq 5 rides on a new dedicated electric vehicle platform Called e-GMP which is being rolled out by the Hyundai Motor Group for the Hyundai, Kia and Genesis brands. The Ioniq 5 will hit U.S. dealers in fall 2021, Hyundai said.
