Hyundai’s next batch of Ioniq5 have some upgrades

Ioniq5 – Hyundai has revised its Ioniq5 all electric vehicle with more features and revised pricing.


The Ioniq5 with is distinctive design and a broader focus on how the interior of a car may be used, and has been praised around the world.

They have made a clearer distinction between two models with the base 2WD called the Dynamiq and the top-spec AWD called the Techniq.

New features on both models are

  • Head-Up-Display which is a great safety and convenience feature
  • A power output socket on the inside of the vehicle in addition to the existing socket on the outside so that so you can charge devices in the cabin as well, and
  • The rated range on the RWD Dynamiq has increased to 481km.

The base model price has been reduced to $69,900 plus on roads

While the top-spec price has risen to $77,500 plus on road but also now has a Vision Roof – fixed glass with electric sunblind as a $1,500 option.


72.6 kWh Lithium-ion Polymer battery

IONIQ 5 is powered by a 653-volt, 72.6kWh lithium-ion polymer battery mounted beneath a flat floorpan, which enables optimised interior packaging and abundant cabin space.

Ultra-fast DC charging

2022 IONIQ 5’s E-GMP architecture can support both 400V and 800V charging infrastructures, to enable segment-leading rapid charging.

The platform offers 800V (i.e. 350kW) charging capability as standard, along with 400V (e.g. 50kW) charging, without the need for additional components or adapters.

The multi-charging system is a world-first patented technology that operates the motor and inverter to boost 400V to 800V for stable charging compatibility.

Connected to a 350kW DC fast charging station IONIQ 5 can be recharged from 10 percent to 80 percent in only 18 minutes – a five-minute charge can provide 100km of range.

When connected to a 50kW fast charging station, IONIQ 5 takes 57min (2WD) or 62min minutes (AWD) to recharge – that’s a lunch break on a road trip.

AC charging

2022 IONIQ 5’s onboard AC charger can recharge the high-voltage battery in around six hours when connected to a charging station or wall-box of equal or higher capacity.

That means IONIQ 5 can be comfortably recharged overnight, ready with 100 percent battery in the morning.

Electric motor

IONIQ 5’s next-generation powertrains deliver best-in-class performance and exceptional energy efficiency.

At the heart of IONIQ 5’s powertrain is a high-output 160kW permanent-magnet synchronous motor driving the rear-wheels. This can deliver up to 350Nm instantaneously across the range of motor speeds.

The AWD powertrain teams a 155kW rear electric motor with a 70kW front axle-mounted motor. This delivers a total system output of 225kW and 605Nm.

With a substantially higher torque than a 225kW conventional powertrain, IONIQ 5’s standing-start acceleration dramatically exceeds performance expectations. The AWD achieving 0-100km/h in 5.2 seconds.
