New Hyundai electric car IONIQ 5 is one of the World’s Most Advanced and Popular Electric Vehicles!
for those who are unfamiliar with the new hyundai ioniq 5 electric crossover you might be wondering what all the commotion is about not one copy of the car has been delivered to a customer but it's creating the biggest shockwave in the auto industry in recent years dare we say it could be the biggest thing to come out of korea since bts the first dedicated electric car from hyundai has set incredible records in just one month since its launch on february 23 2021 the ioniq 5 took in nearly 24 000 units of pre-order in just one day in korea nearly filling out the annual production target of 25 600 units after one week the sale skyrocketed to 35 000 units forcing hyundai to increase the total production by another 19 000 units also the initial batch of 3 000 units for europe was sold out in just one day with over 230 000 inquiries being made sure there have been plenty of great electric vehicles that were released in the last few years in a race to gain dominance in the fiercely contested ev market with the impending ban on internal combustion engine vehicles that will affect most of the free world within the next 10 to 20 years but what makes this first dedicated ev from hyundai so special the ioniq 5 is the first car from hyundai's dedicated electric sub brand called ionic and it's also the very first car from hyundai motor group's all-new egmp or electric global modular platform that has been created for the dominance in the electric vehicle market the egmp features many state-of-the-art technologies that are far more advanced than most of the competition out there currently the highlight of the egmp includes 800 volts architecture dual motor configuration built-in ota or over-the-air online update capability and wireless charging capability the 800 volts charging architecture with 350 kilowatts ultra fast charging capability enables 80 of charge in just 18 minutes and 100 kilometers or 62 miles of range attained with just five minutes of quick charging which makes ionic 5 one of the fastest charging vehicles in the world this kind of charging speed would certainly make electric cars charging a similar experience to refueling an internal combustion engine vehicle the 77.4 kilowatt hours battery in the north american version achieves the maximum range of up to 480 kilometers or 300 miles 800 kilometers or 500 miles range is expected to be achieved in future editions the platform's dual motor flat battery setup allows for a low and flat floor design that opens up the door to never been seen interior design possibilities that hyundai calls a living space theme together with the inherent platform characteristic that offers an incredibly long wheelbase of 118 inches or 3000 millimeters for a compact sized car which is four inches longer than that of the hyundai palisades the interior features a movable center console fully reclining front seats with leg support and movable and reclining rear seats there is no need to worry about the turning circle as an uncluttered front motor bay allows for a tight turning characteristic of a compact car the egmp is also a great handling car with excellent balance due to the heavy battery pack being located low and in the center our mdps or rack mounted motor-driven power steering and the five-link rear suspension make the ioniq 5 a nimble sporty vehicle the dual motor architecture the ionic 5 can be configured as a default rear motor rear wheel drive or dual motor all will drive with each motor driving its own axle the ionic 5 is equipped with a disconnector actuator system or das that can separate or connect the motor and the drive shaft according to the driving situation and freely switch between two wd and 4wd driving methods to minimize unnecessary power loss and ensure efficient driving the acceleration of the ionic 5 will be brisk as well with the dual motor version with 302 horsepower and 446 pounds foot of torque capable of achieving zero to 100 kilometers per hour or zero to 62 miles per hour in just 5.2 seconds the single motor rear wheel drive model makes 215 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque and is capable of 0-60 in 7.4 seconds the egmp is completely pre-wired for the full ota or over-the-air online update system
although it will be limited in capabilities in the first edition ionic 5 with the functions such as navigation data auto update future egmp cars will allow for the firmware update referred to as fota this over the air programming system permits various methods of distributing new software configuration settings and even updating encryption keys to the electric car this advanced feature allows the ionic 5's autonomous driving capability from its initial level 2 autonomy to the eventual level 3 self-driving capability when the technology is ready in 2023. finally egmp vehicles are also capable to receive wireless charging capability when the technology is ready to be distributed with the infrastructure in place to support wireless charging wireless charging enables the vehicle to be charged when it is parked like some smartphone models hyundai plans to offer this feature alongside what it calls plug and charge technology where the car communicates with the charging station and manages payments akin to an electronic toll collection system the user would not have to pull out his or her credit card or corresponding pay card to charge the car the hyundai wireless charging system is being developed in cooperation with us-based wytricity to provide a speed of six to eight kilowatt hours and the dedicated hyundai charging station in korea will be set up to accommodate wireless charging in the near future the rest of the world will follow suit and implement this technology soon enough with all the technology pre-built into the architecture of the egmp with the vision of the future that could continue to support various functions and features as they become available for the next 20 to 30 years hyundai is definitely looking to dominate the industry it is the ambitious korean company's plan to eventually underpin every one of its ioniq kia genesis and even the high performance and cars with perhaps the most advanced and versatile electric car platform in existence only time will tell if not all electric vehicles are created equal the ionic 5 is expected to be launched in north america in the third quarter of 2021. the price in korea is 52 million korean one or forty seven thousand dollars for the well-equipped base model and 57 million korean one or fifty thousand dollars for the upper trim model with a goodie such as bose sound natural leather and 20-inch
