    *Edited to reflect that this thread will contain a number of first drive videos.

    Here's a video we've been anxiously waiting for. Haven't even watched it yet, but wanted to share.

    I'd very surprised if the MSRP of a crossover with this large a battery is anywhere close to $33K in the US. Even if it was, it will be $45K with dealer markups.
  4. Prices can't be directly compared, so let's just wait and see. I assume it'll be somewhere between the ID.4 and Mach-E. Any higher doesn't make competitive sense.

    Regarding the car itself: Sounds good so far, guy seems to like it. The range implied by the numbers in the video isn't particularly impressive (Somewhere on the order of 260 - 270 miles in eco mode), but also not bad (should be ~10+ miles better with 19" wheels, and another ~10+ miles better accounting for the US' larger long range battery, though). I guess we'll see how that shakes out too. The lack of digital side mirrors might hurt range slightly.

    Anyway, what does everyone think about the thing, now that we have a couple reports from people who have actually driven it?

    No, the $33k is after $11k of Korean subsidies and that's the sales price in South Korea, not the US.

    Range test video. Seems like the highway speed is below 60 mph.

    The Fully Charged first drive review of the Ioniq 5 is just stupendously well-shot and has great info. Recommend!

    Jonny Smith's Late Brake Show video is also pretty great. He talks about the augmented reality (AR) navigation projected on the windshield and his segment demonstrating the V2L function of the end is brilliant.

    This is a whole different type of video. No talking, but with it (mostly) first-person point-of-view (POV) approach and the way it checks out so many things, it's actually quite informative in a way that others are not.

  13. Thanks for the vids Domenick I like the no talking one but Jonny Smith's was the best, I might have to buy a bouncy castle to go with my Ioniq 5:)

    Did you see this thing can provide 4000 watts of power! Impressive.

  15. I will be more impressed if they can deliver that same power (or close) at our N.A. standard 120V.;)
  16. Please clarify your point? The whole point of the V2L feature is to provide power (it's actually rated as 3.6kw, not 4, but that's not important) to normal appliances and such... So why wouldn't it be 120v in the US? Or are you suggesting that perhaps the hardware might not be able to handle a realistic load of 3.6kw without melting something?
  17. Exactly, lower the voltage by 1/2 and the hardware would have to increase in size to handle the increase in current. The V2L is rated @ 220V to match appliances in Europe and Korea. I suspect the N.A. version will be ~2kW unless Hyundai develops an upgraded unit specific for use with nominal N.A system voltage of 120V.

  18. Unclear, though that's a good question. We'll just have to wait and see. I don't know exactly how the V2L function is supposed to work, but considering how fast the thing can charge, the wiring is probably rated for well more.

  19. Best guess the DC to AC inverter rating @( 3600 W / 220 V = 16.36 A). Based on that I suspect utilizing the same hardware at 120V and 16.36A = 1963W or possible tweaking of the system if wiring/relays etc capable of 20A would be 2.4kW at best which is still pretty good. The inverter input obviously will run from the ~400V pack which is the important point so lots of capacity there.
    My apologies @ Domenick for topic drift, will start a separate thread when more info is available.

  20. Something I find a little odd is last week we Project 45 customers were on a zoom call to be shown a pre production Ioniq 5 that was the only one in Europe and after being on show in Birmingham until the 25th it will go back to Germany, it was a left hand drive and we were told there were no right hand drives built yet then on the 26th all these vids are posted on YouTube with a pre production right hand drive car with solar panel roof filmed in the UK, if the RHD car was in Europe why on earth didn't they show us that one in the virtual showroom and why say there was only one left hand drive, as I say it just seems a little odd.

    I did think that was odd too. I would say someone misspoke.

  22. Does the Ioniq 5 still have a 12V aux battery?

    If the Ioniq 5 was the first automobile without an auxiliary battery, I believe Hyundai would have trumpeted that fact. Whether it's a 12V or 48V battery is another question.
