Throttle House reviews the 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5

The 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 is the beginning of the new EV series from Hyundai.

Thomas and James review the AWD long range model which has been specced with the ultimate package, about CDN$59,900 (~USD$54,900). That means it gets lots of goodies such as the vision sunroof, dual motors, and the augmented reality heads up display.

James reveals he is in the market for an EV to replace his Audi S4, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 might just be a the one.

But otherwise, I am struggling to find things not to like about the Ioniq 5. Looks may be subjective, but it’s hard to argue with the range efficiency and charging speeds or the build quality and feature set. In fact, I feel confident in saying the Ioniq 5 is the best EV I’ve driven all year. As much as I adore Porsche’s Taycan 4S so very, very much, objectively the Ioniq 5 not only charges four minutes quicker, it’s also a not-inconsiderable $80,000 cheaper.

Jalopnik drive the Hyundai Ioniq 5, and declare it “fantastic”

Hyundai Ioniq 5

David Tracy / Jalopnik »

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is the first car built on Hyundai’s new 800-volt Electric Global Modular Platform, or E-GMP. It’s an industrial-looking, retro-futuristic little hatchback that shares bones with the much less retro, more aggressive Kia EV6. But even though the two cars share platforms, they are both vastly different and both thoroughly good.

A key factor that makes the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and its sibling the Kia EV6 so compelling is the 800-volt architecture. We’ve seen this on more expensive cars like the Porsche Taycan and its platform-mate the Audi E-Tron GT, but never on mainstream, budget (ish) vehicles. This matters because one of the things holding electric vehicles back from mass adoption, other than infrastructure and pricing, is charging time.

It’s no surprise that the Hyundai ended up winning the German Car of the Year contest. I, myself, ranked the Kia EV6 a bit higher due to what I felt was a more premium cabin, but I can’t fault the other jurors for choosing the Hyundai. It’s got swagger.
