It was officially presented in February 2021, and the Ioniq 5 from Hyundai can now also be pre-ordered in Germany. It’s a special electric car that can charge other electric cars. The manufacturer has even thought of a solar roof – and it’s affordable.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 from 41,900 euros in Germany
When the Ioniq 5 from Hyundai was presented, the South Korean manufacturer had a few surprises in store. The e-car can be transformed into a charging station, so to speak, and thus supply other electric cars with electricity. The best equipment comes with a solar roof. According to the manufacturer, the electricity generated in this way should provide an additional range of up to 2,000 kilometers per year.
The guesswork about the possible price of the special electric car is now over. A configurator has appeared on the Hyundai website that reveals the final secrets. Accordingly, the electric car will be available in Germany for 41,900 euros. In this case, there is an electric motor with an output of 125 kW (170 hp). Consumption according to the WLTP standard is 16.3-kilowatt hours per 100 kilometers. The specified range is 400 kilometers with a 58 kWh battery and rear-wheel drive.
A better-equipped variant offers a range of up to 470 kilometers. Here, according to WLTP, consumption of 17.1-kilowatt-hours per 100 km can be assumed. The datasheet states 160 kW (217 hp) of power and the battery has a capacity of 72.6-kilowatt hours. In this case, Hyundai would like to have 45,100 euros. Alternatively, the Ioniq 5 is also available with a dual-engine and 225 kW (305 hp) for 48,900 euros. The Ioniq 5 will then be delivered “in summer”.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 with “high-speed charging”
Hyundai advertises with its electric car, among other things, with a “high-speed charging”. Assuming a corresponding charging point, the battery can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in 18 minutes. Even five minutes of charging time should be enough to offer a range of 100 km.
