Posted by Adrianna Lovegrove on Thursday, August 12, 2021 @ 10:33 AM

Hyundai has just announced that its first ever all-electric crossover SUV, the Hyundai Ioniq 5, is available for pre-order. This vehicle is truly impressive:

  • Range: The Ioniq 5 is available with both RWD and AWD. The RWD option will get you 300 miles of range; the AWD option will get you 269 miles. These numbers are still estimates, not yet verified by the EPA, but they're still exciting!
  • Charging: The Ioniq 5 will also have a very fast charging capability. With an 800V electrical system, the Ioniq 5 can fill a battery from 10% to 80% in less than 18 minutes or add 62 miles in 5 minutes at a DC Fast Charger. To compare, a level 2 charger can do that in a little under 7 hours. Hyundai has partnered with Electrify America to offer unlimited free 30-minute chargers at any Electrify America charging station for the first two years of ownership.
