As the very first of an approaching line of Ioniq-branded electrical vehicles, Hyundai requires to put its finest foot forward withthe new Ioniq 5 Thankfully, the newly debuted crossover makes a vibrant impression with its geometric outside style and the pledge of huge interior area, in spite of its compact footprint.

However striking excellent appearances will just get the Ioniq 5 up until now. It will need to take on the similarity Volkswagen’s ID 4 and the Ford Mustang Mach-E, each bringing their own distinct balance of worth, efficiency and performance. Obviously, the Ioniq will likewise need to compete with the 800-pound gorilla of this class, the Telsa Model Y.


Little in stature and maybe more of a high hatchback than a CUV, the Hyundai might likewise discover itself cross-shopped with the similarity the Nissan Leaf andChevrolet Bolt Ultimately, it’ll discover itself in the likewise sized business of the Nissan Ariya and Bolt EUV, however for today, the Ioniq 5’s 182.5-inch length makes it the second-shortest design in this contrast, simply edging out the 180.5-inch VW ID 4. The Design Y and Mach-E are especially longer at 187 inches and 186 inches, respectively. Width and height are comparable proportionately, with all 4 designs falling within a couple of inches of one another and the 74.4-inch-wide and 63.2-inch-tall Ioniq 5 landing in the middle of the pack.

Freight capability

Hyundai has actually not launched particular traveler volume since this writing, so we do not understand precisely how Tardis-like it’s interior actually is. Nevertheless, we do understand that Hyundai offered the Ioniq 5 a fancy set of seats and a moving center console focused on making the cabin a more versatile area than we have actually seen in any of today’s rivals.

Hyundai did launch freight capability, a minimum of. The little Ioniq 5 boasts simply 56.2 cubic feet of freight area with its 2nd row seats folded flat, a bit less than the 59.6 cubic feet discovered in the Mach-E and considerably less than the ID 4’s 64.2 cubes. Tesla’s numbers are a little an enigma– we understand that it shares 68 cubic feet in between its rear and generous front freight locations, however we do not understand precisely where the split takes place.

Mentioning frunks, the Ioniq 5 has one, sort of. North American designs just have about 0.85 cubic feet of area underneath the hood for freight, which isn’t much at all. On the other hand, the Mustang’s got that huge ol’ 4.8-cubic-foot water resistant frunk that can work as a cooler and Tesla’s got about a carry-on bag’s worth of area in advance.

Battery and variety

The Ioniq 5 can be had in Requirement and Long Variety setups, boasting either 58 kilowatt-hours or 77.4 kilowatt-hours of particular capability. The longest-range Ioniq 5 trim is approximated to return about 300 miles on the European WLTP cycle, utilizing a somewhat smaller sized 72.6-kWh battery that will not be readily available in the United States. Our EPA cycle is normally a bit less flexible, so anticipate that number to drop when the Ioniq 5 reaches the states. We’re thinking– based upon some really rough napkin mathematics– it’ll be around 260 to 270 miles, likewise representing our larger battery, however take that with a huge pinch of salt.

For an electrical vehicle, among the most essential metrics separating the winners from the losers is variety. For that, you normally require a huge battery, however wise usage of aerodynamics, tuning, thermal management and software application can frequently be simply as essential as kilowatt hours. For contrast, Volkswagen’s ID 4 has a larger 82-kWh battery, however simply an approximated 250 miles of variety. The Mach-E provides to 300 miles from its biggest 98.8-kWh pack. On the other hand, Tesla’s Design Y handles to squeeze as much as 326 miles from its smaller sized 75-kWh battery, which is downright remarkable.

On the other side of the variety formula is the concern of how rapidly you can charge the battery. The Ioniq 5 supports approximately 350-kW DC quick charging and has the ability to quickly fill to an 80% state of charge in just 18 minutes. That has to do with on par with the Design Y’s 20-minute charge at the fastest Supercharger stations, however keep in mind that the Tesla most likely loads more miles into that 80%. The Mustang Mach-E’s 150-kW DC quick charge ability uses up to 45 minutes for an 80% charge with its most significant battery. Lastly, the ID 4 has a 125-kW pipeline and 38 minute fast charging, slower however likewise much shorter than the ‘Stang due to its smaller sized battery.

Powertrain and efficiency

While rear-wheel drive is basic, the Ioniq 5 can be had in a dual-motor, four-wheel drive setup. For functions of comparing efficiency, this is the setup– in addition to the bigger battery– that we’ll be utilizing versus the Tesla Design Y Long Variety, Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium and VW ID 4 Pro.

So geared up, the Ioniq 5 boasts an overall of about 306 horse power in between its 2 motors and integrated 446 pound-feet of torque. The two-motor ID 4 Pro, which will follow the rear-wheel-drive First Edition later on this year, raises at the back of the pack with 302 hp. Volkswagen does not list torque or a 0-to-60-mph time, however they make certain to be modest.

Tesla likewise does not formally list horse power or torque, however the basic agreement is that it’s loading about 384 hp and 376 lb-ft in between its double motors. With less torque, however more power than the Hyundai, the Design Y is the quickest of this lot to 60 miles per hour, at simply 4.8 seconds. On the other hand, the 332-hp Mach-E targets the “mid-5-second variety” with the Prolonged Variety battery and AWD, according to Ford.

Ford and Tesla have more effective trims– Mach-E GT Efficiency and Design Y Efficiency– that can each sprint to 60 miles per hour in simply 3.5 seconds, however they’re a bit too powerful (and costly) for this apples-to-apples contrast.

Rates and accessibility

If cash wasn’t an item, we ‘d all be driving Porsche Taycan Turbos and Tesla Design S Plaids, however in this little SUV class, worth for the dollar is an extremely essential metric. Hyundai hasn’t launched prices for the 2022 Ioniq 5 yet, however we’re hoping that it will be competitive a minimum of with Volkswagen ID 4’s $39,995 beginning MSRP, prior to its yet-unknown location charge or any tax rewards or refunds. The Mach-E begins simply above $43,000, however that’s for the basic variety rear-wheel-drive design; more variety or efficiency come at an extra expense. The Tesla Design Y has the greatest beginning cost of the lot with an MSRP of $47,490 for the Long Variety design. The Tesla likewise validates its cost with the longest variety of the group, longer even than the most costly variation of the Mach-E.
