Take your imagination on a wild ride in a retro Pony Coupe concept that’s been reborn as the Ioniq 5. Inspired by Hyundai’s concept car from 45 years ago, the Ioniq 5
is a stylish “Back to the Future” hatchback that provides a peek at the EVs of tomorrow via the past. Retaining many elements of the Hyundai 45 concept vehicle, this eye-catching crossover has been entirely modernized with contemporary materials and cutting-edge infotainment technology. The 5 not only previews future design direction and EV tech for the company, but also debuts the E-GMP platform that will underpin Hyundai Motor Group’s next-generation of EV lineups.
Innovative, eye-catching design
The Ioniq 5 features a distinctive, simple, innovative design with angular lines and some cool ‘80s Euro hatchback cues. A clamshell hood spans the entire width of the car for a clean and high-tech overall look. The front end is adorned with arrays of pixel-inspired lights suggestive of the digital technology within, and its four pixelated headlights produce some flashy animations when you lock and unlock the doors. Aero-optimized wheels further echo the futurist theme while the minimalist, high-tech cabin is every sci-fi nerd’s dream.
Ready, charge, go!
The Ioniq 5 EV inaugurates Hyundai's all-new global electric car platform, which features a modular concept, EV-optimised performance, and user-friendly functions that make it safer, faster, and more efficient. With 313 horsepower, it zips from a standstill to 100 kph in 5.2 seconds and can cover up to 450 km range. The 800-volt system can recharge the battery from 20 to 80 percent in 15 minutes and a smart solar panel roof keeps the battery topped up. Ready drive into the future? The Ioniq 5 will be available later this year (2021) at LeasePlan.
What is a full electrical vehicle? An electric vehicle, also called an EV, uses one or more electric motors or traction motors for propulsion. The energy used for driving an EV is stored in the battery and the battery is charged at a charge station (at home, at the office or in public).What do I need to charge my electric vehicle? To charge your electric vehicle, you will require a recharging station, a charging cable, and a charging card.How many kilometres can I drive on a fully charged battery? A fully charged battery with a capacity of 40 kW will enable you to drive 200 to 250 kilometers. If you drive sensibly, you will achieve even more. Speed has the most effect on the amount of power drawn down from your battery, so you are advised to keep to the permitted speed limits.
There are also other factors that may have an effect on your driving range:
- High or low temperatures (resulting in continuous operation of the air conditioning/heating)
- A (too) sporty driving style
- Driving with a strong headwind
- A fully loaded car
- Driving uphill for a long period of time
Does an electric vehicle require different maintenance than a vehicle with petrol or diesel? An electric vehicle requires less maintenance. This is due to the engine's reduced number of moving parts compared to a conventional combustion motor, which therefore leads to reduced wear. Moreover, oil changes are a thing of the past and the vehicle does not have an exhaust or gears. In addition, the brakes are less susceptible to wear thanks to the regenerative braking capacity.How safe are electric vehicles? Electric vehicles are approved for all safety factors, just like conventional vehicles. In the event of a collision, there is a possibility that some parts may receive an active charge or that short-circuiting causes an electrical fire, though the safety precautions and construction have limited this risk to an absolute minimum.How long will it take to charge my vehicle? That depends on a number of factors: the type of vehicle, the power left in the battery, how fast your vehicle charges, and which type of recharging station you will be using. When charging your vehicle with a standard power socket, approximately 10 hours is required. This is approximately 2 to 4 hours when using a public recharging terminal. When using a fast-charger (primarily located along highways), your battery will reach 80% charge in 30 minutes. Do keep in mind that using fast-chargers is more expensive than standard recharging stations.What does it cost to charge an electric vehicle? This depends on where you will be charging your vehicle. Home recharging stations are the most economical in most situations. The average electric vehicle uses 15 to 20 kWh per 100 km. If your home electricity rate is €0.25 and you drive an average of 15,000 km per year, your charging costs will range between €563 and €750 per year. When charging away from home, your rate is determined by the recharging terminal provider. A starting fee and incentive rate are often charged in addition to the kWh charge. Via www.plugsurfing.com, you'll find an overview of available recharging terminals in Sweden and Europe including the price per kWh.
