Welcome to The Late Brake Show's full review of the new Hyundai Ioniq 5 - the 300-mile true Tesla EV rival styled by Minecraft. We say Minecraft, but any 8-bit video game really. So is this really as good as electric car enthusiasts had hoped? Jonny seemed convinced by the Korean EV efficiency, the retro-future bold styling, massive cabin and boot space, and the charging/power output versatility.
Thanks for stopping by The Late Brake Show.

E-GMP is the codename for Hyundai's Electric Global Modular Platform that the Ioniq 5 is based upon. This is dedicated EV as opposed to shared with piston models, like the Kona and Niro models previously (good as they are). Don't get confused with the existing Ioniq either - that's a much smaller car that can be purchased in petrol hybrid, PHEV or full EV form.
4635mm long
1890mm wide
1605mm high
3000mm wheelbase

Longer than ID.4, shorter than Mustang Mach-e and 78 mm longer wheelbase than a full size Range Rover!
Boot space 531L + 57L froot (24L if AWD optioned)
Boot space rivals:VW ID.4 = 543L, 1575L seats down
Ford Mach-E = 402L + 81L (froot), 1420L seats down
Nissan Ariya = 468L (2wd model)
Much of the interior is eco-friendly (saw this many years ago on the first generation Kia Soul EV) and uses sustainable sourced materials, recycled PET bottles, plant based (bio PET) yarns and natural wool yarns, plus eco-processed leather with plant based extracts and bio paint with plant extracts.
400 or 800v charging capability supported (world first), The IONIQ5 also can rapid charge up to 380kW, so although much of the UK isn't there yet it is ready. Theoretically it can can charge 10-80% in 18 mins at this level. Or get 100km of range from 5 mins of charge.
Two batts, two or 4wd:
Two battery choices (similar to its competitors): 58kWh or 72.6kWh
Two electric motor layouts - either RWD or AWD, the latter having two motors.
Best performance is the 72.6kWh AWD with 225kW and 605nm of torque = 5.2 0-62
Longest range car obviously has bigger battery and 2WD for up to 480km range - or 300 miles WLTP.
All cars have a top speed of 115mph or 185km/h.
Hyundai's V2L (Vehicle 2 Load) means you can use an external or internal plug socket to power things, charge e-motorbikes, or even other electric cars. This could be just what we need for some distanced entertainment in 2021 (and beyond?) 3.6kW output sockets. There's also a socket inside the Ioniq 5 (between rear seats) and a 15w fast charger for mobile devices.
Prices are not confirmed yet, but the ballpark is looking incredibly promising. Expect the Ioniq 5 to start around £36k and for the big battery 4wd launch edition (as tested) to be £47k. With all that space, charging innovation, unique styling and performance (not to mention unlimited mileage 5 year warranty) Jonny may have whispered that he would have an Ioniq 5 more than any other EV right now.

No thanks, I’ll stick to my ancient planet polluter!

    • @Mamadh Haryadi Interesting. My general observation is that UK speakers tend to pronounce foreign words as if they are English words, whereas US speakers make a half way effort to say them closer to the foreign pronunciation. We (US) though sort of moderate our foreign pronunciation, if it's too foreign sounding it can seem pretentious, and if it's too English sounding it seems uneducated. Hearing a UK speaker say those words though as Anglicized doesn't seem uneducated, it's more amusing, by which I mean no offense. There are probably lots of exceptions, but that's the impression I have. I make no judgement as to which is "right" or "better", just an observation.

  • Ioniq 5 looks like an über-styled concept that should have died on the drawing board. Its looks are so horrible that it even might deter me from ever looking at Hyundai again. The Hyundai EV6 can't arrive soon enough to make us forget the Ioniq 5, hopefully, to totally erase the existence of the eye-watering ugliness of the Ioniq 5.

  • I think the only thing that will hurt this car and other EVs, the cost. Now they say you get a Federal Tax Credit, which will off set the cost, but a lot of people are not eligible for this tax credit, so who will benefit the upper middle class and the rich. So car manufacturers why can’t you take the tax break and pass it on the buyers.

  • Hi Jonny great review. The vehicle to load function is really exciting, can you confirm that you could plug the car into your home solar/battery supply and increase a home's battery storage? In todays world where many people work more from home and the car is used less frequently, boosting power storage at home with the car seems a sensible step in the right direction. Take care D

  • The disparaging comments to the Diesel Pick up Jonny, is it really necessary? My Tyrannosaurs has lasted me 14 years without a problem.... and it didn't cost anywhere near 45 thousand quid! In fact where I live diesel pick ups are the life and blood of the people. I'll wager my Hilux is still going when your car is being recycled!

  • (Edited) I want to note that this car has an 11 kW 3-phase AC charger. The normal Ioniq only does upto 6.6 kW single phase on a 22 kW 3-phase charger and 3.7 kW on an 11 kW charger. Where I live about 90% of all public chargers are 3-phase chargers.

  • Could someone make an electric car totally free of gadgets, and sell it to a decent price instead. I know exactly nobody that asks for recliner seats with ottomans and sliding backseats, but a fair few who would go electric if they could find a cheap car with decent range. It's not like you need to recline the seat and take a nap if it charges that quick anyway. I want the Suzuki Jimny but electric and to the same price as the gasoline one with 400km range (and for gods sake, keep the transfer case)

  • Nice one Jonny, keep the EV’s coming. Funky mopeds and bouncy castles aside, yesterday I spent the day at Inch Perfect Trials riding the Electric Motion trials bike. A serious bike, on par with IC bikes and easily capable of lasting a full days trialling. However, if you were a bit ham fisted, which is easily done when practicing rather that competing, with the IONIQ5, a half time sandwich and re-charge could be just the thing. Maybe even have a toasted sandwich! 🤔
