Official: Hyundai Ioniq 5 Has Seriously Impressive Range

Electric Vehicles / Comments

The official EPA ratings are in.

Any brand-new pure battery electric vehicle needs to be able to reach around 300 miles on a single charge in order to be competitive. The all-new Hyundai Ioniq 5 has accomplished this. The South Korean automaker has confirmed the EPA has given the retro-styled hatchback/SUV a certified maximum range of 303 miles with the single motor setup. The dual-motor all-wheel drive version can travel up to 256 miles. Both versions are equipped with a 77.45-kWh battery pack whose juice is sent to either the rear or all four wheels.

The single motor, 2WD produces a total of 225 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The dual-motor sees those figures increase to 320 hp and 445 lb-ft. That extra power results in a 0-60 mph of less than 5 seconds but also less range.


A few days ago, the EPA released range figures for the Ioniq 5's corporate cousin, the Kia EV6. Both ride on the E-GMP platform. The EV6, however, can be equipped with a less powerful 56-kWh battery but only in the single motor setup where it returns 232 miles. The 77.4-kWh battery in the Long Range RWD gets you up to 310 miles. The Long Range AWD drops to 274 miles with the same battery.

Thanks to the Ioniq 5's 800-volt architecture, it can also accommodate 400-v charging without requiring the use of adapters or other similar components. When connected to a 350-kW charger, the Ioniq 5 can go from a 10 to an 80 percent battery capacity in just 18 minutes. Even in only five minutes, 68 miles of range can be recouped using the same fast charger.

The 10.9-kW on-board charger allows for a full charge in 6 hours and 43 minutes with Level 2 charging. Owners also receive unlimited 30-minute charging sessions at any of Electrify America's 700 charging stations across the country. That figure is due to increase to 800 charging stations and over 3,500 ultra-fast charging stations by the end of this year.

One of the Ioniq 5's coolest and perhaps most useful features is the V2L function that enables owners to charge a range of electric devices, such as laptops and scooters. Think of the EV as a charger on four wheels. It can also provide electricity during a power outage. Official pricing still hasn't been announced but expect an estimated $45,000 cost of entry, not including the federal tax credit and other state-specific incentives.
