Design and Practicality
Clean lines and minimalism is the design language of the IONIQ 5. Electric car design follows a distinct futuristic vibe and this particular Hyundai is no different. The IONIQ 5 is built on Hyundai's ground-breaking E-GMP platform. This clever design ensures that the IONIQ 5 is able to offer:
- Faster charging times

What's more, a unique clamshell bonnet spans the entire width of the car, which reduces panel gaps for a clean, high-tech look. Aero-optimised wheels further echo the piercing, futuristic design theme, further cementing the IONIQ 5's ability to turn heads. Trick LED lighting also ensures this is one fine-looking electric car.
It's not just a pretty face either, with enhanced practicality combining the best blend of hatchback and SUV practicality. Therefore, five doors come as standard, along with 588 litres of front and rear boot space.
Cabin space is also vast, with relaxation reclining seats, and plenty of space for five people to enjoy the IONIQ 5 in complete comfort.
Technology and Safety
IONIQ 5 offers a striking digital interior full of technology and safety. A crystal clear 12.3-inch infotainment screen is joined by a matching 12.3-inch instrument cluster for a slick and high-tech look.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay come as standard, along with being able to turn the windscreen into an ultra-impressive 44-inch advanced heads-up display, to safely guide you in busy cities.
With Vehicle-to-Load technology (V2L) you can also turn your IONIQ 5 into a hub to power your electrical items, or charge electrical equipment up to 3.6 kW with the on-board 220V plug. You can even charge other electric cars via the IONIQ 5.
As for safety, the IONIQ 5 is also the first Hyundai with Level 2 autonomous safety technology. It also includes other cool safety technology such as lane assist, adaptive cruise control, autonomous parking and high-beam assist. It even has blind spot cameras that appear on the car's digital instrument cluster when indicators are being used, giving the driver a clear image of what is in their blind spot for enhanced safety.
The IONIQ 5 comes complete with the excellent 5-year, unlimited mileage Hyundai warranty, along with an 8-year battery warranty too.
Range and Performance
Being a fully-electric car, there is no internal combustion engine (ICE). Instead, the IONIQ 5 features an electric motor and battery combination, with all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive.
These come in the form of a 58kWh motor with rear-wheel drive, able to offer a combined range of up to 240 miles. There's also a 73kWh motor with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, which offers up to 300 miles, or up to 287 miles respectively. The 58kWh motor is joined by a 195kW battery, whilst the 73kWh motors are joined by a larger 253kW battery.
The headline 73kWh all-wheel drive version has a total power of 302bhp. This version can cover 0 to 62mph in just 5.2 seconds and has a top speed of 115mph.
The IONIQ 5 features an 800V battery system, meaning ultra-fast charging is possible.
