In this late CarTell.tv news segment, we look at the soon to be released to market Hyundai IONIQ 5. One of the hottest electric vehicles we will see in 2021 and possibly the best. This pure EV carries with it a lot of hope from Hyundai who are flexing on the international stage their ability to produce electric cars that can rival the likes of Tesla, Nissan, and Volkswagen.
The all-electric SUV is pushing boundaries, much like several other more recent models in the Hyundai lineup.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 will have two battery packs to choose from and a single- or double-motor setup, the latter giving AWD capability. The RWD model with the smaller battery gives 125 kW of power and 350 Nm of torque. The AWD model with the smaller battery gives 173 kW and 605 Nm.
The Ioniq 5 with the bigger battery and RWD gives 160 kW and 350 Nm and the top version with the bigger battery, two motors and AWD produces 225 kW and 605 Nm.
Charging is also a very nice upgrade in the Ioniq 5. The fastest charging option gives you 100 km in just 5 minutes, while a 10-80% charge takes just 18 minutes.
