Hyundai promised something different for its new electric car, and the 2022 Ioniq 5 certainly delivers. Blending retro and futuristic together in a head-turning way, the hatchback may be zero-emissions but it’s not short on personality. From the angry, squinting fascia at the front, to the sharply creased doors, and the shapely rump, the Ioniq 5 definitely stands out among the EV crowd.
There’ll be front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations, with one or two electric motors. The former packs 215 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, enough to sprint from zero to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds. The dual-motor all-wheel-drive version, meanwhile makes 302 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque, and is expected to do that dash to 60 in 5.2 seconds.
US EPA range from the 72.6 kWh battery hasn’t been confirmed yet, though we’re expecting upward of 260 miles from a charge. Pricing will be confirmed closer to the Ioniq 5’s arrival in US dealerships this fall.
