Hyundai Ioniq 5: We’ve been waiting to get behind the wheel of the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 — also called the Ioniq Electric — since it was first unveiled at the 2021 LA Auto Show, and now we finally have our chance. What should you know about this new electric vehicle before you take the plunge? Keep reading to find out!

Performance of Hyundai Ioniq 5:

The new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric SUV is an electric hatchback that boasts more than 300 miles of range. Check out the competition to see if this car is right for you! In our experience, it performed well on public roads thanks in part to its mid-size footprint and versatile interior that seats five passengers with surprisingly comfort for an all-electric vehicle. The base model comes with 20 wheels which is considered small in today’s market but gives off a luxury vibe.

The Hyundai Ioniq is known for its reliability, though no vehicle is completely free of issues. Still, most reviewers find that they have few complaints about their Ioniqs. Consumers don’t report an unusual number of problems with their vehicles, and those who do are generally satisfied with how quickly Hyundai takes care of them under warranty. With proper maintenance and care, you should expect your car to last several years without incident or visit to a repair shop—or at least one much less often than in past generations of cars from other manufacturers.


The Hyundai Ioniq 5 comes standard with a variety of safety features that are similar to those found in other electric vehicles. Some of these features include: Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection, and Adaptive Cruise Control. The lane departure warning system is particularly useful because it helps avoid distracted driving by letting you know when you’re drifting out of your lane, which happens more often than you might realize.


From an e-motor in each wheel to wireless charging, Hyundai has done everything possible with today’s technology. The Ioniq doesn’t have full autonomy (yet), but it comes with level 2 self-driving tech that can keep you in your lane on highways and automatically brake at low speeds if a pedestrian is crossing your path. It also has Alexa and Siri integration, an advanced sound system, four USB ports, and even two standard 110-volt outlets. In short, Hyundai won’t win any points for style or luxury here, but it offers all of today’s requisite tech specs as standard equipment.

Interior Quality:

Hyundai’s competitors aren’t going to just hand over their market share, and they have set a high bar for interior quality. The Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E both offer roomy interiors that feel upscale, while Volkswagen will show off its VW ID.4 at CES 2021 in January. It’s not clear if any of these cars is as comfortable inside as a Hyundai Sonata or other models in its fleet, but Hyundai has plenty of work ahead of it before it can compete with Tesla on interior design. If you want an electric car with class-leading interior quality, your only choice at present is Tesla. But stay tuned—the Ioniq 5 might change that.

Fast Charging:

With a fast-charging 350 kW charger, the IONIQ 5 will only take 18 minutes to charge from 10% all the way up to 80%. With just 5 minutes worth of charging, you’ll have enough power for 100 kilometers!

V2L Functionality:

Don’t miss out on power outlets! There are two available for you to use – one that comes out from underneath the second row seats, and one that emerges at the bottom edge of the charging port just outside the vehicle. The V2L ports are equipped with converters so you can plug in things like electric cars or campers without having to worry about running low on battery life.
