2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 for Sale in Hyannis, MA
As electric vehicles (EVs) continue to grow in popularity, Hyundai has finally released its very first fully electric model, the 2022 Ioniq 5. Some of you may already be familiar with the regular Ioniq, which is available as either a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid, or an EV, but the Ioniq 5 marks the beginning of the automaker’s line of all-electric vehicles. It looks fantastic, with lines that are clean and sharp, innovative pixel-inspired light clusters, a clamshell hood, and flush door handles that all give off a futuristic vibe. And that’s just on the outside. Inside, the Ioniq 5 has an airy layout with a tech-forward dashboard and a minimalist center stack. The well-placed electric powertrain frees up space for a longer wheelbase and a flatter floor, leaving more interior volume for passengers to stretch out and stash their stuff. But what a lot of drivers are excited about is, of course, the Ioniq 5’s eco-friendliness and fuel efficiency. Let’s take a closer look.
Trims and Electric Powertrain
The 2022 Ioniq 5 comes in SE, SEL, and Limited trim levels, with either a rear-wheel or all-wheel drivetrain. Those with RWD have a single 168 kW electric motor that puts out 225 hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque; AWD versions have two motors, a 74 kW unit and a 165 kW unit that combine to produce 320 hp and 446 lb.-ft. of torque. The drive range for RWD models is 303 miles, while the AWD models will reach 256 miles.
Range and Charging
The ’22 Ioniq 5 comes with an 800-volt ultra-fast charger that can generate 68 miles of range in a mere 5 minutes (it can also go from a 10 percent charge to an 80 percent charge in under 18 minutes). Buyers will also receive two years of unlimited 30-minute complimentary charge sessions through Electrify America’s ultra-fast network of DC fast-charging stations.
Not only that, but the Ioniq 5’s battery can also charge on the go thanks to its regenerative braking feature, which is managed via steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The plus (+) paddle sets the degree of regenerative braking higher to capture more energy, while the minus (-) paddle sets it lower to allow for smoother coasting when you remove your foot from the accelerator. There’s even a Smart mode that will automatically adjust the degree of regenerative braking.
Standard Features of Note
The ’22 Ioniq 5 is a sleek and sporty compact crossover equipped with an ample supply of amenities. The SE is stocked with LED headlights, heated side mirrors, rear privacy glass, proximity entry with push-button ignition, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, automatic climate control (two zones), a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, five USB ports (one for data and the rest for charging), and a 60/40-split rear seatback with a folding center armrest.
The SEL is upgraded with premium LED front accent lighting, power-folding side mirrors, a hands-free liftgate, simulated-leather seats, a wireless phone charger, a heated steering wheel, ambient interior lighting, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a HomeLink universal garage door opener. At the top of the range, the Limited gets Remote Smart Parking Assist, the smartphone-based Digital Key, rain-sensing wipers, a single-panel “Vision” glass roof, a ventilated driver’s seat with position memory and extendable thigh support, a power front passenger’s seat (also with cooling ventilation), an augmented reality (AR) head-up display, a sliding center console, rear side-window sunshades, and a vehicle-to-load (V2L) 120-volt power outlet for charging equipment inside and outside the vehicle.
Advanced Safety Systems
In the driver-assist technology department, the SE gets forward collision-avoidance assist with obstacle detection, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, rear parking sensors, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, speed limit assist, driver attention warning, safe exit warning, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams. The SEL adds front parking sensors and an enhanced forward collision system with upgraded obstacle detection and evasive steering assist. The Limited tops the range with a surround-view camera system, a live-feed blind-spot view monitor, and reverse parking collision-avoidance assist.
The ’22 Ioniq 5’s connectivity is state of the art. The SE and SEL both receive an infotainment system with a 12.3-inch touchscreen that includes navigation, dynamic voice recognition (which can respond to commands for opening/closing the windows, releasing the tailgate, and heating the seats, among other things), Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The top-spec Limited is furnished with a fine Bose sound system.
