UPDATE, 11/07/2022 – Hyundai Australia has detailed its updated 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 range. We’ve pulled this story forward to reflect all of the changes.
Hyundai has made some changes to its all-electric Ioniq 5 crossover, with a lower base price and a different line-up than when it was launched in September 2021.
The South Korean automaker has yet to detail when these updated versions of the Ioniq 5 will be available for order, but we will update during the week.
The line-up now consists of a new entry-level, single-motor rear-wheel drive Dynamiq and a flagship dual-motor all-wheel drive Techniq.
The entry-level Ioniq 5 Dynamiq gets smaller, more efficient 19-inch alloy wheels and misses out on features such as the premium relaxation front seats, ventilated front seats, rear door sunshades, and heated rear seats, among others.
The top-of-the-range Ioniq 5 Techniq retains all the previously standard features except for the ‘Vision Roof’ fixed glass roof with electric sunblind, which has been made a $1500 option.
All Hyundai Ioniq 5 models now also gain an augmented reality head-up display, as well as a vehicle to load (V2L) function inside the cabin.
Pricing has changed as well. The entry-level Ioniq 5 Dynamiq starts at $69,900 before on-road costs, which is $2000 cheaper than the previous Ioniq 5 RWD.
The flagship Ioniq 5 Techniq on the other hand is priced at $77,500 before on-road costs, which is $1600 more expensive than the previous Ioniq 5 AWD.
The electric drivetrains remain the same, with the Ioniq 5 Dynamiq only available with the 160kW/350Nm single-motor rear-wheel drive setup and the Ioniq 5 Techniq only available with the 225kW/605Nm dual-motor all-wheel drive setup.
At launch, the Ioniq 5 was available in a single, unnamed trim level with a choice of single- or dual-motor powertrains.
Until the end of June 2022, Hyundai has sold a total of 321 Ioniq 5 models. It outsold the likes of the Kia EV6 (294 sales), but was outsold by the likes of the Tesla Model 3 (4653 sales) and the Mercedes-Benz EQA (443 sales).
- 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Dynamiq: $69,990 (-$2000)
- 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Techniq: $77,500 (+$1600)
All prices exclude on-road costs.
The entry-level 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Dynamiq is exclusively powered by a single electric motor that produces 160kW of power and 350Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the rear wheels only.
The flagship Ioniq 5 Techniq has a dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain with total system outputs of 225kW and 605Nm. It can do the 0-100km/h sprint in a claimed 5.2 seconds.
Both powertrains use a 72.6kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack that’s mounted beneath the flat floorpan.
The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Dynamiq has a claimed electric range of 481km according to WLTP testing, which is up 30km on the pre-update rear-wheel drive model.
This higher claimed range is apparently partially thanks to new 19-inch alloy wheels on the Ioniq 5 Dynamiq, which are wrapped in 235/55 Michelin Primacy 4 tyres.
The all-wheel drive Ioniq 5 Techniq has an unchanged claimed electric range of 430km according to WLTP testing.
The Ioniq 5 uses 16.8kWh/100km in rear-wheel drive Dynamiq guise and 19.0kWh/100km in all-wheel drive Techniq guise.
It has 400V and 800V charging compatibility and can be charged at up to 10.5kW with AC power and up to 350kW with DC fast charging, the latter allowing you to charge it from 10 to 80 per cent in 17 minutes.
It also features a vehicle-to-load (V2L) function inside and out that can provide up to 3.6kW of power. The inside V2L plug is new for the updated model.
The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 measures 4635mm long, 1605mm tall and 1890mm wide, excluding the mirrors, and has a 3000mm wheelbase.
With the rear seats upright the rear-wheel drive Ioniq 5 Dynamiq has a rear boot capacity of 527L, as well as a 57L front boot and a 9.4L sliding glovebox.
The all-wheel drive Ioniq 5 Dynamiq has the same boot and glovebox capacities, but has a smaller 25L front boot.
The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 is covered by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty. Its battery is also covered for eight years or 160,000km, whichever comes first.
Servicing is required every 12 months or 15,000km, whichever comes first. The first five services are capped at $220 for both variants, except for the fourth service which costs $804.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 has a five-star safety rating from ANCAP, which is based on testing conducted in October 2021.
It earned its five-star rating on back of a 88 per cent score for adult occupant protection, 87 per cent for child occupant protection, 63 per cent for vulnerable road user protection, and 89 per cent for safety assist.
