Visit our Hyundai dealership today for our Fourth of July sales event! Our inventory includes vehicles from the Sonata and Elantra to the Palisade and newly IONIQ 5. Hyundai launched IONIQ 5 in February of this year. The model is the first in Hyundai’s new BEV-dedicated IONIQ brand. With numerous sustainable and innovative features, IONIQ 5 redefines the benchmark for the electromobility lifestyle.
IONIQ 5 offers customers an astounding range of benefits that will make their driving experience more convenient and safer. Some of these standout features are not obvious at first. That is why the first film of the deep dive highlights those benefits, including ultra-fast charging, Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) technology, sustainable materials, and three semi-autonomous Hyundai SmartSense safety features: Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA 2), Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-avoidance Assist (RCCA), and Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA).
Thanks to E-GMP, IONIQ 5 supports ultra-fast charging. The platform offers multi-charging capabilities with 800V ultra-fast charging as standard as well as 400V charging without the need of additional components or external adapters. Using a 350-kW charger, IONIQ 5 can quickly charge from 10 to 80 per cent in just 18 minutes. According to WLTP, IONIQ 5 customers can add on 100 kilometres of range with less than five minutes of charging.
The innovative Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) function of IONIQ 5 transforms the BEV into a charger on wheels. V2L enables customers to use and charge any electric device, such as e-bikes, e-scooters, or battery-operated camping equipment. Supplying up to 3.6 kW of power, IONIQ 5 can operate other electric machinery (110 / 220V) anywhere. With a specific adapter, an external recharging plug can be used as a power source.
IONIQ 5’s vision of sustainability is marked by its eco-friendly materials. From its seats and headliner to door trim and armrests, many of its interior touchpoints are made from eco-friendly, sustainably sourced materials. These sustainable materials include plant-based yarns, natural wool yarns, eco-processed leather with plant-based extracts, 100-per-cent-recyclable paperette, and recycled PET bottles. And by cooperating with Healthy Seas’ partner Aquafil, Hyundai is committed to contributing to a circular economy and plans to use ECONYL®, a regenerated yarn made from recycled fishing nets and other nylon waste, in its products – for example, in IONIQ 5’s floor mats.
Hyundai SmartSense safety features are not apparent to the naked eye. A Hyundai-first, IONIQ 5 offers Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA 2). This safety feature combines Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control and Lane Following Assist and makes motorway driving more convenient using Level 2 autonomous driving capabilities. Using IONIQ 5’s front view camera, radar sensors, and navigation data, HDA 2 controls the speed, direction, and following distance. Additionally, it can assist drivers when changing lanes.
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-avoidance Assist (RCCA) is another standout safety feature of IONIQ 5. RCCA uses rear sensors to detect crossing traffic. When traffic is approaching from the left or right, RCCA displays and sounds a warning. If drivers do not stop, the feature autonomously applies the brakes to avoid a collision.
Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA) makes parking easier than ever. Outside of the vehicle, drivers can activate RSPA via a button on the smart key. RSPA helps IONIQ 5 autonomously enter or exit a parking spot. This feature works for both perpendicular and parallel parking.
