Automobile Giant Hyundai has released the all-new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5, a small SUV with the interior room of a midsize. Hyundai says the Ioniq 5 will debut in the fall of 2021 in 19 states. The rest of the U.S. will see them arrive in 2022.

The five-passenger Ioniq 5 will be the first vehicle to use Hyundai’s new Electric Global Modular Platform, or E-GMP, designed solely to underpin electric vehicles. Many current EVs — including the Hyundai Ioniq and Hyundai Kona Electric — are designed to support both engine and electric applications, which causes some packaging issues when converting for EV use.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 has an electric-only powertrain that’s available in two potencies. The rear-drive configuration generates 225 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, which Hyundai says will propel the 5 from zero to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds. The all-wheel-drive version is much more powerful, with 320 horses and a substantial 446 pound-feet, and quicker, too. It’s said to catapult to 60 mph in 5.2 ticks. The 5 rides on Hyundai and Kia’s new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which, again, will underpin the companies’ slew of incoming new EV models.

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

With 800 volts of operating voltage, the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 has the same type of advanced electrical architecture as the Audi e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan. However, as it stands, its battery has a smaller usable battery capacity. The Ioniq’s pack supplies 77.4 kWh and can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in around 18 minutes or add 68 miles in about five minutes when plugged into a DC fast charger. Hyundai is targeting a 300-mile range for the rear-drive model and 269 miles with all-wheel drive. We estimate the final versions will offer between 258 and 290 miles of range.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Since Hyundai hasn’t released any information about the Ioniq 5’s efficiency, we have nothing to report here. Once those details come out, and we have the opportunity to test one, we’ll evaluate how efficient the Ioniq 5 is in the real world. For more information about the Ioniq 5’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

While not as artsy as the cabin teased by the Hyundai 45 Concept, the Ioniq 5’s interior boasts a tech-savvy space with a digitized dashboard and a heavy dose of eco-friendly materials. A head-up display with augmented reality that can project navigation directions on the windshield is just one fanciful feature. The compact crossover also takes advantage of its all-electric packaging, with a completely flat floor for maximum passenger and cargo space.

The front seats also recline and incorporate footrests, which will let folks relax while the Ioniq is charging. With a wheelbase that’s longer than the three-row Hyundai Palisade, the 5 has ample front- and rear-seat passenger room. Its large center console has lots of storage space, and on top-spec Limited trims, it slides back and forth between the front seats.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Hyundai says the Ioniq subbrand emphasizes connected living, and the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 has a host of innovative infotainment and connectivity features. A 12.0-inch touchscreen shares a panel on the dash with a 12.0-inch digital gauge cluster, but the former acts as a hub for all things entertainment. This includes smartphone-integrated apps such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as advanced voice-recognition technology.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

Along with a suite of driver-assistance technology, the Ioniq 5 will offer a Level 2 autonomous drive mode called Highway Driver Assist 2, which is similar to GM’s Super Cruise in that it can drive on the highway and change lanes with little to no driver intervention. For more information about the Ioniq 5’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites.

NB: Updates on full specifications will be available as and when we receive info.
