Hyundai's new Ioniq sub-brand has teased its first electric car, the Ioniq 5, before its introduction next month. The teasers show a good resemblance of the EV with the Hyundai 45 concept car the company showcased in 2019. Besides the teaser images, Hyundai also gave us some information about the vehicle’s design and its capability to work as a generator.
While the company is publicizing the Ioniq 5 as a mid-size crossover, experts believe it is a hatchback according to its proportions. Previously, we found some leaked specs, which validated it having the same height as the Kona crossover yet a foot longer. It means the electric vehicle will appear low and long.
As far as the mechanicals are concerned, the EV will be capable of producing up to 313 horsepower. It will feature an all-wheel-drive as standard and offer a choice between two battery packs. The standard 58.0-kWh pack will deliver an estimated 282 miles of range on the WLTP cycle. On the other hand, the optional 73.0-kWh pack will be perfect for those looking for a higher range.
An exciting thing about the all-new Ioniq is its ability to function as a generator. The company says it will deliver up to 3.5 kilowatts of energy via 110-volt and 220-volt outlets to power different machines. Hyundai showed us an oven, a sound system, and a treadmill getting power from the generator for demonstration purposes.
The company is arranging an event to introduce the Ioniq 5 in February. It should hit the dealerships in the USA, Australia, and other parts of the world before the end of this year.
