The Hyundai Ioniq 5 range has been overhauled, with a cheaper base grade below $70,000, and new technology features across the range.
- 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 pricing and specifications
- Dynamiq and Techniq variants replace launch variant
- Lower price for Dynamiq, with smaller wheels, less kit
- Trick head-up display and second V2L port added, glass roof now optional
- Priced from $69,900 before on-road costs
Hyundai Australia has rejigged its 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric car range, with a lower starting price for the base model, and new features for both grades.
The old two-model, equally-featured Ioniq 5 range has been replaced with two repositioned variants: the base, rear-wheel-drive Ioniq 5 Dynamiq, as Hyundai Australia badges it, and the all-wheel-drive (AWD), flagship Ioniq 5 Techniq.
The new rear-drive-only Dynamiq variant is now pitched as the entry-level model, offering fewer features than the previous RWD model, for a price $2000 lower, at $69,900 plus on-road costs.
Meanwhile, the all-wheel-drive Techniq is the flagship of the range, priced from $77,500 plus on-road costs – $1600 more than before. Fixed pricing and online sales are retained for both models – which are still branded as 2022 vehicles.
Offsetting the price rise is the addition across the range of an augmented-reality (AR) head-up display – which ‘projects’ navigation arrows onto the road ahead – and a second vehicle-to-load (V2L) port, allowing the car’s battery to power external electrical devices.
However, the glass ‘Vision Roof’ has been cut from the standard equipment list of both models – and is now a $1500 option, available exclusively on the Techniq.
While Australia gains the AR head-up display and second V2L port (inside the cabin, joining one outside, both offering 3.6kW) offered overseas, our market misses out on the longer-range 77.4kWh battery available elsewhere, along with camera-based side ‘mirrors’.
Driving range has been increased for the updated range, in the form of 19-inch wheels and Michelin Primacy 4 tyres for the entry-level Dynamiq – replacing 20-inch wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport EV rubber – which increase WLTP range from 451km to 481km.
Other features removed from the Dynamiq compared to the old RWD model – aside from the larger wheels – include upgraded front ‘relaxation’ seats with ventilation and memory, a heated steering wheel, power-adjustable heated rear seats with memory, rear door sunshades, and an
Powering the entry-level Dynamiq is a carry-over 72.6kWh battery pack and 160kW/350Nm electric motor on the rear axle, good for a 7.4-second 0-100km/h time, and the aforementioned 481km driving range claim.
Meanwhile, the Techniq couples the same battery pack with 155kW rear and 70kW front electric motors, developing 225kW and 605Nm combined, for a 5.2-second 0-100kmh/h time, and 430km of claimed WLTP driving range.
The Ioniq 5 is capable of 800 volts and 350kW DC fast charging, good for a 10 to 80 per cent recharge in a claimed 18 minutes, in optimal conditions.
