The EV is the first from the legacy automaker to be built on its electric-overall modular platform, giving the all-electric crossover a standard range of 58 kWh and a long range of 77.4 kWh.
The car is coming in a full-drive and standard option, but there will also be an all-wheel-drive variant. The fit options include an “Ultimate” package and a “Preferred” package, although it is not clear what is actually different between the two options. Hyundai likely plans to reveal more information in the coming weeks.
The estimated range for the Canadian version of the Ioniq 5 is as follows: standard range Essential RWD – 354 km, standard range Preferred RWD – 354 km, Preferred AWD long range with Ultimate package – 400 km, Preferred AWD long range – 435 km, preferred long-range RWD – 480 km.
When it comes to horsepower, the Ioniq 5 is capable of 225-320 horsepower. Exterior color options include “Phantom Black”, “Cyber Gray”, “Atlas White”, “Digital Teal”, “Lucid Blue” and “Shooting Star”. For the interior, there is “Obsidian Black Monotone”, “Dark Pebble Gray / Dove Gray” and “Dark Teal / Dove Gray”.
It’s unclear how much the Ioniq 5 will cost in Canada, but given that Hyundai’s Kona electric car starts at $ 38,000, most estimates place the cost in the $ 45,000 range. It’s unclear when the EV will be released, but it will likely end up in the hands of drivers this fall.
In February, rumors circulated that Apple and Hyundai were in talks about a partnership related to the often-rumored Apple car. Reports indicated that Hyundai would provide the manufacturing and underlying EV technology powering the vehicle. However, talks collapsed after a Hyundai executive spoke publicly about the deal during a results call.
