Does the IONIQ 5 replace the Hyundai Ioniq?
Not at the moment. When the IONIQ 5 arrives in UK showrooms in June, it will be sold alongside the Ioniq. However, in time the Ioniq will be superseded by a range of Ioniq models spawned from the 5.
What is the range of the IONIQ 5?
The long range 72.6kWh battery model should give 298 miles of range while the smaller 56kWh version will give 240 miles. The all-wheel drive 72.6kWh will be somewhere in between. Expect about 220 -250 in the real world.
Will there be a range of IONIQ 5s?
Yes, the IONIQ 5 is the first in a range of new electric cars wearing the IONIQ name. It's a bit confusing as there's already a model called the Ioniq, but the Ioniq name will become a sub-brand for Hyundai's pure-electric cars. The 5 will be joined by a saloon and an SUV in the next couple of years, most likely called IONIQ 6 and IONIQ 7.
How long does it take to charge the IONIQ 5?
The IONIQ 5 is the first mainstream electric car to get an 800V charger – previously this tech was reserved for the Porsche Taycan. It means that if you plug the IONIQ 5 into a 350kW charging point it'll take just 18 minutes to top up to 80%, or 60 miles' worth of charge in just 5 minutes.
