What's New

The 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 is an all-new fully electric compact crossover that will feature cutting-edge EV technology including bi-directional and 800V DC charging, 303 miles of range, a stretched wheelbase for maximum internal capacity, an eco-friendly futuristic interior, and a distinctive exterior style.

The IONIQ 5 will be the first vehicle built by Hyundai on a brand-new platform exclusively for electric vehicles, which will eventually lead to larger crossovers using the same technology. It is aiming at competing with other electric crossovers like the Tesla Model Y, the Volkswagen ID.4, the Ford Mustang Mach-E, and the Chevy Bolt EV.

Choosing Your Hyundai IONIQ 5

The 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 electric vehicle is available in three trims: SE, SEL, and Limited. Prices range from $44,895 (including destination) for the SE and range up to $51,845 for the Limited.

A lower-priced base model called the SE Standard Range version should arrive in the spring with just 168 horsepower and a reduced range of about 220 miles for the single motor configuration. More details will be available later, but Hyundai says pricing will start at $40,945.

Engine Choices

As an electric vehicle, the IONIQ 5 doesn’t have an engine. Instead, it has up to two electric motors and a 77.4 kWh battery pack. Base models receive the single motor option as standard, but the dual motor configuration is available as a $3,900 option.

Tradeoffs exist between the single motor and dual motor options, notably in range and performance. Dual motors are much faster than the single motor, with a 0-60 mph time under five seconds according to Hyundai, but there is a significant range penalty associated with the increased performance. Single motors are about two seconds slower to 60 mph but will give you over 50 miles of extra range.

The IONIQ 5 has some impressive charging stats as well. It can operate on both 400-volt and 800-volt charging infrastructures, and it can charge the battery to 80% in just 18 minutes from an 800V. If you’re pressed for time, you can get about 68 miles of range in about five minutes from an 800V/350 kW charger. The onboard charger will fully charge in less than seven hours using a 240V outlet.

Finally, Hyundai is throwing in unlimited charging for two years at any of 700 Electrify America fast-charging stations across the country.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The IONIQ 5 is notable for just how much interior space they’ve managed to create by shoving the wheels as far as they can to each corner. While there’s only seating for five, the extra-long wheelbase means there is plenty of legroom available in both rows.

Cargo space is also optimized, with 27.2 cubic feet behind the second row, and up to 59.3 cubic feet with the second row folded down.

Safety Features

The IONIQ 5 has a large number of standard safety features, wrapped up in a package called Hyundai SmartSense. This package includes Highway Driving Assist 2, which can help steer and drive the car along highways, respond to other drivers and assist with lane changes. It isn’t self-driving in any real sense, but it is nice to have.

SmartSense also includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision avoidance, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, collision avoidance, driver attention monitoring, and automatic high beams.

Unfortunately, the IONIQ 5 hasn’t been crash-tested yet or rated by the IIHS or NHTSA.


In an electric car this futuristic you’d expect it to have connectivity in droves, and we’re happy to report that it does. Hyundai will offer over-the-air wireless updates for various software including maps and multimedia software. Additionally, the Hyundai Bluelink app will allow you to see the car’s current range, battery level, and charging times, as well as select charging schedules to maximize usage of off-peak electricity rates. The app also allows you to schedule the vehicle to pre-heat or pre-cool the interior before you need it and find charging locations and send it to the vehicle’s infotainment screen.

Speaking of screens, the IONIQ 5 features a large 12.3-inch touchscreen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster that can be custom configured as needed. This infotainment system features navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and voice recognition control of a variety of functions from climate control to opening the back hatch.

2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 SE - MSRP From $44,895

SE models come standard with stain-resistant cloth upholstery, an eight-way power driver seat, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, brake regeneration paddle shifters, and USB ports. Additionally, SE models receive an acoustic front windshield and LED headlights with automatic high beams.

The only option for the SE is the Dual Motor, which adds $3,500 to the price. White is also considered a premium color for $400.

2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 SEL - MSRP From $47,145

The SEL adds a few desirable features to the IONIQ 5, including leatherette seats, wireless device charging, auto up-down front windows, second-row HVAC vents, a heated steering wheel, and ambient interior lighting. Headlights are upgraded to projector-style lights, and the vehicle receives a hands-free tailgate and power-folding mirrors.

Like the SE, there are no options besides Dual-Motor configuration, but a new premium paint is available for $1,000 called Shooting Star (it’s grey).

2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 Limited - MSRP From $51,845

The Limited Trim brings a lot to the table over the SEL. Included as standard are remote parking assist, a panoramic glass roof, a driver memory seat, a power-adjustable passenger seat, seat ventilation, adjustable head restraints, a Bose audio system, and a head-up display.

The Limited is also where you can find many of the party tricks that Hyundai is most proud of, including a sliding center console that lets you get in from either side of the vehicle easily, the Hyundai digital key, and a backseat Vehicle-to-Load functionality that allows you to power small appliances and devices.

Like all other trims, the only option is the Dual Motor configuration, but for some reason, it costs $3,900 in the Limited trim instead of $3,500.

CarsDirect Tip

The IONIQ 5 is an extremely compelling electric vehicle with a ton of advantages. We think the SEL offers the most value of the three trims. We also think that unless you have the need for speed, the single motor configuration offers the most advantages, so it’s worth saving the $3,500 (or $3,900) over the dual-motor.

A Seriously Good Start. Nearly every automaker in the industry is planning a dramatic switch to focus on electric vehicles. While it’s hard to believe that some automakers are going to follow through on all their promises, the 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 showcases just how serious Hyundai is.

The IONIQ 5 is Hyundai’s all-new electric car to kick off its IONIQ subbrand. If the IONIQ 5 is an indicator of what’s to come from the South Korean brand, we have to say that we’re really excited about what's in store.

Unashamedly Retro. The majority of electric cars on the market today attempt to channel the future for their designs. The IONIQ 5 takes a different route and looks toward the past for a thoroughly retro design that’s entirely its own. There’s no way the IONIQ 5 can be mistaken for any other vehicle.

You’ll find an odd design element everywhere you look on the outside. The IONIQ 5 almost looks like it’s from a cartoon with its overly boxy portions and angular body lines. The pixel-like headlights and taillights, Parametric Pixel design for the 20-inch wheels, and metallic bumpers are just a few of the IONIQ 5’s unique styling elements. The more you look, the more you’ll find. For some, the design will be overkill, but there’s no denying that it's distinctive.

Surprisingly Spacious Interior. Hyundai’s designers went into designing the IONIQ 5 as an electric vehicle from the beginning. This, and the boxy design, means that they found a way to make the most of the available space. Despite its proportions, the IONIQ 5 has a roomy cabin with a large cargo area.

The IONIQ 5 has a wheelbase that’s longer than the Palisade’s, which means there’s plenty of legroom in both rows. The boxy roofline results in a relatively large amount of headroom, too. Cargo room is equally as impressive, as the electric car has 27.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat. Folding the rear seats down results in a total cargo area of 59.3 cubic feet of space. The IONIQ 5 has a front trunk, but it’s only big enough to hold 0.85 cubic feet of cargo.

While passengers will find little to complain about with the amount of space on the inside of the IONIQ 5, the electric car’s seats are a huge sore spot. The front seats have a tall seating position that may have taller drivers brushing their heads up against the ceiling. The seats are missing some back support and thigh support, too.

Hyundai IONIQ 5

Smooth, Not Sporty. The IONIQ 5 doesn’t attempt to set a new record for acceleration or grip. Instead, it focuses more on being a comfortable car for daily use. It succeeds at the task, with a soft suspension setup that results in a supple ride. With some body roll, steering with little feedback, and a supple ride, the IONIQ 5 isn’t a sharp-handling EV.

At the time of writing, Hyundai offers the IONIQ 5 in three configurations. The base EV comes with a 58-kWh battery pack and a single electric motor at the rear axle. The configuration comes with rear-wheel drive and 168 horsepower. The next step up is to get a 77.4-kWh battery pack with the same electric motor for 225 horsepower. An all-wheel-drive version of the IONIQ 5 is available, coming with the 77.4-kWh pack and an additional electric motor at the front wheels. The result is 320 horsepower.

Range for the IONIQ 5 is competitive for the segment. The base IONIQ 5 with RWD and the 58-kWh battery pack is good for 220 miles. The 77.4-kWh battery pack with RWD has the longest range of any IONIQ 5 model with 303 miles. Lastly, the powerful AWD model can travel up to 256 miles. Going with the 77.4-kWh battery pack brings DC fast charging capability that can see the battery go from 10% to 80% in roughly 18 minutes.

Muted Interior With Tons Of Tech. The interior design of the IONIQ 5 isn’t anywhere as daring as the exterior. It’s simplistic and straightforward in an upscale way, but a bit boring when compared to the outside of the vehicle.

The IONIQ 5’s cabin is filled with loads of tech, though. Two 12.3-inch screens dominate the dashboard. One acts as the central touchscreen, while the other is a digital instrument cluster. The electric car also comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, five USB ports, and advanced voice recognition technology.

Hyundai offers the IONIQ 5 with a long list of advanced safety features that includes forward-collision warning, pedestrian and cyclist detection, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, and blind-spot intervention.

Final Thoughts. The 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 sets the tone for Hyundai’s future electric cars. The vehicle’s stylish design, refined road manners, and impressive range make it a unique choice in the class. The IONIQ 5 isn’t cheap and the interior doesn’t look nearly as good as the exterior, but these are minor quibbles to what is an excellent EV.

For sportier performance, there’s the Ford Mustang Mach-E. While it doesn’t have the same moves as the two-door Mustang, it’s quick in a straight line, offers athletic handling, and can travel up to 305 miles on a full charge.

The Chevrolet Bolt EUV has a spacious cabin, up to 200 horsepower, and a range of 247. Just like the IONIQ 5, the Bolt EUV puts comfort and range above performance.
