It is possible to summarize the 2021 Hyundai Ioniq 5 with expressions such as simple design, advanced technologies, spacious and comfortable living space.
Here is the design and features of the electric crossover:
Hyundai has finally lifted the cover on the new electric crossover Ioniq 5. Ioniq 5 is the first product of Ioniq, which the company established as an electric vehicle brand.
The Ioniq 5, which we can define as the serial production version of the Hyundai 45 concept, draws attention to its unique details in the body design. In the vehicle, which was designed quite simply, eye-straining details were avoided. At the front, a layout similar to Opel’s new Vizor design is used. The Parametric Pixel headlights stand out in this area.
The sharp lines in the bumper continue on the doors. We see aerodynamically focused 20-inch wheels being used in the Ioniq 5. In addition to the turbine designed dual-tone wheels, the handles embedded in the door draw attention in this area. At the rear of the Ioniq 5, a trunk spoiler that makes the vehicle look more sporty and the Parametric Pixel stops extending from the front, just like the front, draw attention.
Although the Ioniq 5 looks like a hatchback at first glance, the dimensions tell us the truth. Because the vehicle has a length of 4635 mm, a width of 1890 mm and a height of 1605 mm. The wheelbase was announced as 3000 mm, which is 100 mm more than that of the company’s large SUV model Palisade. In this way, it is aimed for the driver and passengers to enjoy a spacious living space and plenty of luggage volume.
The Ioniq 5’s 531-liter trunk volume increases to 1600 liters with the rear seats folded down. The rear seats can be folded in a 6: 4 ratio for a more practical use and can be slid 135mm forward. In addition, since the Ioniq 5 is an all-electric car, there is 57 liters of storage space (24 liters in AWD versions) in the area remaining from the front engine block. It should be noted that Ioniq 5 is built on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) designed by the company for electric vehicles.
Only and fluent understanding of body design is also seen in the comfortable cabin of Ioniq 5. Right in front of the driver, there are 12-inch digital display and multimedia screens adjacent to each other. In addition, Ioniq 5, which is a first for Hyundai, also has a head-up display (AR HUD) with augmented reality. The front seats, which also have thigh support, become a perfect resting place for the driver and front passenger when tilted.

The center console of the Ioniq 5 can be slid back and forth at the driver’s request. In this way, while providing flexibility in the cabin, it is aimed that the driver can easily exit from the right door when parked in a narrow space. As the console moves, the gear selector is positioned just behind the steering wheel. 15W wireless smartphone charging and USB ports are among the other features in the cabin. In addition, a wide panoramic glass ceiling is included in order to make the living space more spacious.
Engine, battery and charging
Different configurations are offered as powertrain in Ioniq 5. In the version named Standard Range, a 58 kWh battery is used. This version can be chosen as four-wheel drive (AWD) or rear-wheel drive (2WD). The AWD version has two electric motors producing a total of 173 kW of power and 605 Nm of torque. The 0-100 km / h acceleration of this model takes 6.1 seconds. In the 2WD version, an electric motor that produces 125 kW of power and 350 Nm of torque is used. The 0-100 km / h time of this version is also 8.5 seconds.
Ioniq 5 is also available in the ‘Long Range’ version equipped with a 72.6 kWh battery. AWD and 2WD options are also available for this version. The long-range AWD version has electric motors producing 225 kW of power and 605 Nm of torque. The 0-100 km / h acceleration of this model is 5.2 seconds. The 2WD option has an electric motor at the rear that produces 160 kW of power and 350 Nm of torque. The 0-100 km / h value of this version was announced as 7.4 seconds. The longest range offered by Ioniq 5 is 480 kilometers (72.6 kWh battery + 2WD). The range of other versions has not yet been announced.
Ioniq 5’s platform supports both 400V and 800V charging infrastructures. It takes 18 minutes for the battery to reach 80 percent from 10 percent with a 350 kW charger. This means that Ioniq 5 users can achieve a range of 100 kilometers with just 5 minutes of charging. Ioniq 5 also has V2L functionality. This allows users to charge electrical devices such as bicycles, scooters or camping equipment with 3.6 kW with the battery in the vehicle.
Finally, Ioniq 5 includes an advanced driver assistance system called Hyundai SmartSense. The crossover model in question is the first Hyundai model to feature Highway Driving Assist 2. In addition, there are many features such as forward collision avoidance assist, blind spot collision warning system, smart speed limit assistant, driver attention warning and high beam assistant.
