  1. I've found an Australian video on YouTube of a RHD Ioniq 5 and I think shows the interior in better detail than the UK videos

    The ranges automakers provide can vary quite a bit. Encouragingly, Hyundai estimates have been pretty good with lots of owners exceeding them. Of course, we won't know how close the Ioniq 5 in particular is until we try it, but I'm optimistic it will be reasonably accurate. But also, yes, these ranges drop in colder weather. Luckily, though, the UK doesn't get Canada-like cold so much.
    It is a shame about the lack of 350-kW chargers there. Lots of room for improvement. I'd like to see automakers themselves step up and give their customers the confidence to buy their EVs. Hyundai is doing it in South Korea, so it's not impossible to think they might consider expanding that effort to other markets.

    Here's the Q&A from the virtual showroom - as just emailed from Hyundai

    Michael Knight has already posted Hyundai's showroom video for the non-project 45
    So here's the specific version for those who've ordered the Project 45
    Michael Knight likes this.
  10. Restyler mine was a link in an email from Hyundai and the video was the virtual showroom for Project 45 buyers I watched except with an introduction from a lady and no Q&A session at the end you probably got a link to the one you took part in with an introduction from a man, I think they may have polished up their act for yours:)

    No, its even simpler:-

  13. Domenick your right I got my Ioniq SE Premium Hybrid up to 99mpg fuel efficiency once never managed to do it since, 99 is the highest it could go as there are only 2 digits but usually its around 65-70mpg. I wonder if they will have a Project 45 for the USA and Canada or was it just for Europe as I can't find any mention of it elsewhere and in the Australian video I posted nothing was mentioned about Project 45. Oh well only around two months to wait until they arrive in the UK and find out how efficient they are and how good they look in the flesh.
  14. Ha ha I've just received another email with a link to the video you posted, I think they need a new IT team:)

  16. Asian Petrolhead has done a great review and your right Restyler his English is better than mine:) he could replace someone on Top Gear, but I don't agree with him on the Phantom Black version which is the one I have ordered and think looks great, I also want one of those Hyundai charging stations on my driveway ;) Petrolhead doesn't really work for an EV driver maybe a Watthead could be the new name:)

    Asian Petrolhead has just put up a range test video of the I5
    Fun Fact - His measured 0-60mph was just 4.9secs :)

  18. Domenick, according to Asian Petrolhead when you get the Ioniq 5 in North America it will have the option for a long range 77.4KW battery which should give you quite a few more miles
    Domenick likes this.
  19. Based on the numbers from Asian Petrolhead's video (the camera shows the instrument cluster display a couple times), I'd estimate a realistic range of around 260-270 miles (72.7kw battery, 20" wheels). The change to 19" wheels should offer ~5-10% extra range. For ease of calculation let's call it 15 miles = ~275-285 (that's still a bit below the nominal range of ~300, but not horrible). The US battery is ~6.5% bigger, let's call that another 15 miles to be safe (it would actually be a touch more, if we're assuming perfect linearity), that would make for an optimal configuration in the US of ~290-300 miles. AWD would probably be about 5-10% less. This concludes my random mathematical excursion for the evening :)

    The Ioniq 5 configurator is now up on Hyundai's German site
    I specced it fully up to a Project 45 & it came out at around E65,000 = £56,500 which is £8.5K above the price we will be paying!
    {Most Euro prices include vat at 20%, so an on the road cost of £48K would have cost £40K without the tax}

    Thanks for putting up all the UK pricing & configuration info on your news page
    This "bare bones" info is all you currently get on the official Hyundai UK site
    Screen Shot 05-08-21 at 11.02 AM.PNG
    If only they'd priced the base model £2K lower at £34,995, it would have been eligible for the UK EV grant & totally nailed the competition!

    One thing I'm a bit confused about regarding the spec:-
    What's the difference between "Tinted vs Privacy" Rear Windscreen?

    How many Ioniq 5s will be languishing unsold in dealer back-lots because they didn't make a £34,995 version? Perhaps when they've made more than people will engage in fisticuffs to get they'll offer a special £34,995 deal.

    On sunny days a mirrored rear windscreen could cause havoc for following cars, but what else could assure privacy? Perhaps Hyundai runs the more expensive rear windscreen through the tint machine twice.
