The Hyundai automaker released another electric vehicle. The IONIQ 5 model is a compact electrical crossover with a fairly unusual functionality for the electric transport market.
The five-seater machine can drive nearly 500 kilometers without recharging and is equipped with one or two electric motors in different versions of the configuration. The car will be produced under the Ioniq brand, while the release of electric vehicles under its own name Hyundai intends to organize only by 2040.
The accumulator with a capacity of 77.4 kWh is capable of charging 80% in just 18 minutes, and in the American charging network Electrify America for two years, IoniQ owners will receive power supply for free. So far, there are 600 stations in this company in the USA, by the end of the year it is planned to open 200 more.
One of the main features of IoniQ 5 is the possibility of reversing charging. The machine is able to feed the power tools, electric scooters and bicycles and any other electric vehicles, including other electric cars (the desired cable is included). The novelty has two outlets, one of which is located in the cabin.
All versions, regardless of the number of electric motors, provide maximum speed up to 185 km / h. The advantage of a model with two engines is that it accelerates to 100 km / h a little over five seconds.
The electric vehicles of black, white, green, blue, blue and different shades of gray are available. The start of IONIQ 5 supplies is expected not earlier than the fall, but about the prices of the manufacturer’s representatives only say that they will be “competitive.”
