Hyundai Ioniq 5 rated for 300 miles / 483 km of range in the USA
Hyundai unveiled its Ioniq 5 compact electric SUV in Europe in February, and will be bringing the model to the USA on May 24, 2021. Here are some of its specifications.
Hyundai says the car will offer 300 miles (483 kilometers) of driving range, just like its European counterpart. This is interesting, because the measurement standards are different in Europe (WLTP, more liberal) and the United States (EPA, stricter). The transmission type is also not stated.
The Ioniq 5 for North America will get a larger 77.4-kWh traction battery (the other markets make do with 72.5-kWh) and a single rear-wheel drive motor rated at 215 PS (212 hp / 158 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft). Opting for dual motors and AWD will net you 302 PS (298 hp / 222 kW) and 605 Nm (446 lb-ft) of torque.
The slightly larger battery will not be the only technical difference between the US spec and the others; Hyundai says the car is also marginally more compact and supports fast charging within 18 minutes.
