More energy in your life. More freedom, and more exceptional experiences to new electric horizons. Discover the new Hyundai Ionic 5. A 100% electric compact crossover. Nevertheless, competition is rare, but still present. The Ioniq 5’s most direct rival is of course the Tesla Model Y.
Ioniq 5 features the iconic styling of the EV 45 Concept, which was presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019.
For a high-tech look, the one-piece hood stretches the full width of the vehicle and encompasses part of the fenders. The LED daytime running lights are composed of parametric pixels, offering a signature light pattern to the Korean crossover.
The front bumper is V-shaped and has integrated air intakes. These optimize engine cooling when open. When closed, they improve the vehicle’s aerodynamics.
The Ioniq 5 has a sporty silhouette thanks to its geometric Z-shaped line, which meets at the front and rear doors. An ultra-thin LED strip at the rear of the vehicle adds a touch of originality.
Also, the aerodynamic alloy wheels available in 19 and 20 inches give an electrifying design to the Ioniq 5. Finally, depending on the trim level, the door handles are retractable when the key is detected.
Inside the cabin, the driver discovers two 12.3-inch digital screens side by side. The first, located behind the steering wheel, serves as an instrument panel (speedometer, battery charge, etc.). And the second, in the center of the dashboard, is a voice-activated multimedia screen.
The vehicle’s two front seats recline and offer premium comfort. Recline completely at the touch of a button for a recharge. Rear passengers also enjoy optimal comfort. The seats recline manually and slide 135 mm electrically.
Eco-responsibility is a core philosophy at Hyundai. In fact, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 contains 730 grams of cane sugar and corn mix, 294 grams of wool, 200 grams of linseed oil, up to 32 recycled plastic bottles, and 0.08 meters of recyclable fine paper.
As you can see, innovative and eco-friendly materials make this 100% electric crossover less dependent on petroleum-based products.
The Hyundai electric Ioniq 5 has a neo-retro look and compact SUV dimensions. A length of 4.65 m, a width of 1.89 m and 1.65 m in height. Its wheelbase of 3 meters is impressive. The latter is larger than the electric Kona.

Where is the new Hyundai Ioniq 5 manufactured?
South Korea’s Hyundai Motor Co. is producing the all-electric Ioniq 5 model at its first plant in Southeast Asia.
