2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Range & Specs

The all-new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 is the ideal blending of retro-modern form with 21st-century functionality and efficiency. Here's a look at the EV's range, charging, performance and specs.

The 2022 Ioniq 5 is a breath of fresh air among utility vehicles. Hyundai has established itself as a leader in many automotive-related categories including design. Always looking to push the styling envelope, the Ioniq 5 looks like no other vehicle, and it happens to be electric. 

Hyundai’s taken advantage of the opportunity afforded by the push for electrification to introduce a near-revolutionary vehicle in many respects. While design is a matter of personal taste, the Ioniq 5’s minimal ultra-modern-yet-retro shape leaves no one indifferent.

Beyond the looks lies an incredibly sophisticated vehicle in every way. Hyundai has built an EV that offers ultra-fast charging capabilities, impressive performance, and various other technologies including both infotainment and safety that makes many competitors seem out of touch with what consumers want. 

Two battery options each with different range delivery

The first two trims of the Ioniq 5 are fitted with a 168-horsepower rear-mounted permanent magnet synchronous electric motor. It is powered by the standard lithium-ion polymer 58-kWh battery that, when fully charged, delivers up to 354 km of range. This configuration enables the EV to cover the 0-100km/h sprint in 8.5 seconds. 

The Ioniq 5’s rear motor can be fed by a larger Long Range lithium-ion polymer 77.4-kWh battery which boosts its output to a respectable 225 horsepower. All three single-motor vehicles feature 258 lb.-ft. of torque however, the horsepower bump means this version of the 5 reaches 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds. This iteration provides an impressive range of up to 488 km.

Finally, the top version is supplied with the Long Range battery pack and a pair of electric motors for all-wheel-drive capability. Total system output is a sports-car-like 320 horsepower and 446 lb.-ft. of torque. Off the line, few other vehicles will manage to keep up with this Ioniq 5 as it hits 100km/h in only 5.1 seconds.

One of the fastest-charging electric vehicles on the market

Built on Hyundai’s exclusive Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the Ioniq 5 features the ability to support both 400V and 800V charging infrastructures. Thanks to this novel technology, the Ioniq 5 can, connected to an SAE Combo 350kW fast charger, go from a 10% to an 80% state of charge in only 17 minutes 16 seconds. 

This makes the Hyundai one of the fastest-charging electric vehicles on the market. Connected to a 50kW fast charger, the same recharge sequence will need just shy of 46 minutes for the 58-kWh battery and 61 minutes and 42 seconds for the 77.4-kWh pack.

Plugged into a Level 2 charger, the EV’s standard onboard 10.9 kW charger will complete a full charge in as little as 6 hours and 43 minutes for the Long Range models. The smaller battery will need only 5 hours and one minute. 

The Ioniq 5’s platform is not only innovative but its unusually long wheelbase provides an immense amount of usable interior volume. In fact, the 5’s wheelbase is nearly a full four inches longer than that of Hyundai’s large 3-row midsize Palisade SUV. 

Ioniq 5 Essential vs Ioniq 5 Preferred AWD Long Range

As standard, the Ioniq 5 Essential includes a twin 12.3-inch display setup. The central screen serves for infotainment purposes including navigation and audio controls. The other is the digital instrument panel. Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, 19-inch alloy wheels, and many more features are also incorporated. 

Must-have items such as a heated steering wheel, the heat pump, and the battery heating system are only available with the more expensive Preferred trim. Feature-wise, the Preferred Long Range adds nothing other than the larger battery. 

At the top of the trim ladder is the Preferred AWD Long Range. For buyers looking for premium equipment, the optional and aptly-named Ultimate package can be selected. It includes 20-inch alloy wheels, full LED lighting, wireless device charging, heated rear seats, leatherette seating surfaces, a power liftgate, and far more.
